So much for checking the old IYE traveller carefully on Encore before ordering $81 worth of the wrong bearings. It’s not all bad, since the previously purchased Delrin bearings will be needed eventually as they will either wear out or fail before long.
Unfortunately the broken pieces in the top photos during a recent sail were from the two Delrin ball bearing sheaves … and they look equally if not more expensive. So it goes when maintaining an old boat.
