Help - Profurl part size-

Have a Profurl C320 furling gear. Last fall I found the c-shaped washer on my deck; am getting ready to climb the mast and install it but was wondering if anyone knew the size of the self tapping screw that holds it in place.

Like to have the correct screw before I climb up there.

Re: Help - Profurl part size-

The size of the self tapping screw is 6mmx16mm, tapering from 6mm to 6.3mm.

If the c-shaped washer was installed correctly you better find out why it came off. Extrusions too long; touching the terminal / luff of the sail too long; halyard swivel hard against the c-shaped washer / lose set screws of a bearing holder; extrusions came apart etc. Most likely the bearing holder slid down inside the extrusion, check the bearing for damage.
