Harken MKII Headstay Adjustment

I need to tension the headstay on my Cheoy Lee ketch after replacing a corroded bow plate (lots of corroded deck fixtures).

I can't seem to find an installation manual online for the MKII but I have looked at videos and parts diagrams of the Harken MKII furling assembly and my MKII does not seem to have the same setup.

The bottom locking nut is the same but at the top, the stay-lok stud doesn't seem to have any locking female nut / stud cap (see attached pic). The stud turns on the bottom of the turnbuckle but I can't seem to make the top stud turn in the turnbuckle without turning the forestay. Any suggestions?
