Post 73 Morgan Out Island 36ft forestay Roller Furling

I am trying to break out and locate any diagrams or details for the Morgan roller furling system used on the '73 Out Island model. It appears is a stock and has an emblem that apprears to be a branded unit perhaps sold as stock system for the boat when it was new.
I am wanting to disassemble and perform maintenance on the bearings etc, but would like to know what I am getting into. I have had the boat a year now, and have not pulled it apart yet, but getting it ready for this summer.
If anyone has any insight to the forestay furling used on these Morgan models I would appreciate any info passed along.

A photo would surely help here. Morgan did not likely build the furler, so it is almost certainly from one of the regular hardware vendors, and with a photo, someone is gonna recognize it.
