Pro Furl Furler Rebuild > Know of a You Tube Video?

Hi Folks

We have a 26 year old Pro Furl "Basic" with over 25K on it and as a general maintenance procedure I want to replace the bearings in it. Its still going strong but think its time since I am replacing the headstay.

I purchased the bearing rebuild kit from Wichard and will be carrying it down to the boat which is in Tahiti.

I am looking for a You Tube video on how to remove and replace the bearings. Anyone out there know of such a DIY video?

Many thanks

Chuck

There is an excellent article (DIY) on how to replace the bearings in your Profurl Well worth the purchase if you are thinking about doing a R&R of the bearings

Good Old Boat March/April 2017 issue by Ed Zacho. "Refurbishing an Aging Furler"
