pirate ISO Reckmann Furler replacement R3 extrusions (S & L type)

Have a bent extrusion on an older Reckmann furler. The extrusions are definitely "RS" but may be a "S type" interlocking pattern or the newer "L type" interlocking system..

In order to establish which system it is, the forestay needs to come down. So I'd like to have both types available to change out if possible. Anyone aware of a source for these or have any advice?

I've done it twice. Arrgh. A 2 man 2 day job. I'd rather not re-live it.

Key for me was to get a strengthening piece so it doesn't happen again, but I don't know if it applies to your model. I went to Hamble yacht Services for parts and advice.
