My roller reefing gooseneck has gotten stiff of late to the point today it totally jammed up on a weird angle. I pulled it apart when I got it home and greased up the nylon bushing, now it’s all good. I’ve uploaded video and some photos here: https://www.facebook.com/131489233859293/posts/1062223927452481/?d=n

Thanks for photos Greg. My fitting has been stiff and creaking (in much the same fashion as my back) for years. After seeing your post I may pull it apart and give it the treatment. The fitting that is. :shock: it’s operation is simpler than I thought.
