Hi Boatman, Thanks for your reply.
I'm trying to follow you, but I am not quite sure what you mean by "links" and "slides". The Seafurl installation
manual refers to "Plain and "feed" "extrusions".
So by Links are you referring to the splice pieces? and by slides, do you mean the feed extrusions?
The extrusions are joined with "Splice pieces" and there is a "luff bearing at each joint, I think at the bottom of each extrusion. The joint is made with rivets, and I believe there is silicone added at each splice. The rivets would need to be drilled out.
The instructions in the manual to adjust the Head-stay turnbuckle (on page 11 of the 810 SL installation
manual) tell me to disconnect the drive unit assembly and slide it up over the Feed extrusion, I see how this is done.
Is it correct that then I can slide each extrusion down through the Drive unit Assembly, taking them apart one at a time, until they are all down and off the head-stay, and then lower the drive unit assembly down last? Do the extrusions all fit over the turnbuckle?
I hope this is what you mean. I apologize for being a bit slow at this, but I am the kind of guy who needs to visualize each step.
