Facnor behind the mast furling system

I have a 1988 Hunter Legend 45 that has a Facnor behind the mast add on furling system. It is housed, not one of those that are exposed. I believe that is is about a 1997 model. The top swivel failed leaving the outer part up with the main halyard and the lower part coming down with the head of the sail. It should be on piece. I have it apart and it appears that there is no bearing in the swivel, just close fit aluminum. Does anyone know FOR CERTAIN that there is no bearing? There is a clip inside along with a bushing that holds them together. Not sure exactly how they separated. Before re-installing I want to KNOW that there is not a bearing that I am missing. Here is a pic of the lower unit and housing.

Re: Facnor behind the mast furling system

Looks very similar to one of the systems Kemp Selden had i nthe UK, perhaps the same just different marketing names. There are downloads on the Selden website which might help.
