Nicro-Fico Traveler End-Stop Needed

Hi All - One of the end stops on my 1 1/4" Fico traveler broke last week (on a 1979 Pearson 32). It is a plastic part the snaps into the end of the track profile, and bolts through the bridgedeck, on either side of the track.

Part # is FG 1176 or NF 1176 (per rig rite). Rig rite lists the part on their website but no longer has them.

Anyone have an old 1 1/4" fico traveler they would sell for parts, or just give me an end cap from?

Thanks!!

Re: Nicro-Fico Traveler End-Stop Needed

For anyone interested, I found out that Ronstan's series 32 I track is essentially the same as Nicro-Fico 1169. Ronstan support was great here is what they said:

The current Ronstan 32mm I Beam series is effectively the same size as the Fico 1 Series, however there has been some slight changes over time. I have attached our catalogue page of the current series and the Fico series which shows the track profile where you can see these slight changes.

If anyone wants to see the attachments PM me.

The punchline is that after finding the compatible part, one of my brilliant crew came up with the best (free) fix which is to tie stopper notes in the control lines so the traveller cannot run off the track, end stops or none.

I've got pin stops right now so they are more cosmetic than anything. But I want to to move to a line-controlled system. The Ronstan end caps with the blocks attached are exactly what I'm needing, I'll check prices out on those - the ones that Rig-Rite make are crazy expensive.
