Reckmann R2 Furler

Does anyone have experience with replacing the bearings on an old Reckmann R2 furler? I know the upper bearing has to have the weld cut out and once the bearing is replaced, it needs to be welded back in but I'm suspecting that its the lower bearing that's giving us trouble now and there's no obvious way to get to it.

Any ideas?

I had to take it back to Reckmans in holland , that was about 4 years ago. Most of that stuff isn't easily repairable

The Manual doesn't seem to cover it.
