I have a Profurl Classic
. It takes quite a bit of force to turn the furler
. I have to grab it with both hands to get it to spin at all.
swivel spins easily. I removed the set screws that hold the drum and was able to separate it from the extrusions, and that spins easily as well.
2 of the extrusions near the top of the forestay are slightly bent, so I'm wondering if that is causing the friction. I'm trying to figure out how to remove the extrusions, but I don't see how to remove the bottom bushing and bushing holder. I've loosened the 2 set screws for the bottom bushing, but it doesn't want to separate from the extrusion.
Should I be able to lift
up on the extrusions to separate them from the bushings? Or should the bushings be loose after loosening the set screws?
I've never worked on anything like this, so thanks for any help.
