Harken Furler Mark 1 Unit 0 Halyard Swivel Repair

Has anyone rebuilt the Halyard swivel. I made a mistake and pulled it apart while racing.
I have the bearings and do not wish to take the entire furling/stay down to replace the bearings on the middle races. I want to try electric tape around the plate folded over in almost half, and stick it up against the outer plate edge and place upper bearings in then lower upper part of swivel over the bearings without loosing the bearings overboard. Then complete top and lock ring and then pull tape off from the middle of the swivel. Can this work be done successfully? Harken suggested I use thick shaving cream or some other water soluble to hopefully hold the 19 bearings in the upper race then wash out after finish. The tech support said is is almost impossible to do on the boat without taking the swivel off the stay.
If anyone has had success without taking the whole system apart I would greatly appreciate any ideas would be greatly appreciated...
Thank you in advance.

Bluefrog, have you been able to repair your Harken furler?

I have a Harken furler MkI Unit 0 for sale with all the parts, and it looks like no one at this point wants the furler assy including foils as a whole item.

Let me know what you might need if you are still in need of parts.
