Harken stay tensioner

Hello. I am trying to get some advice about stripping down a Harken B500 stay tensioner. I've attached the parts diagram. If anyone has any experience of this I would appreciate any tips. Where to start? What are the parts most likely to need replacing? etc

Re: Harken stay tensioner

I would just call Harken. It isn't something that I would really want to tear apart unless I had no other choice, a clean work bench, and a lot of little tins to put stuff in.
