DF 1000 Outhaul repair

Post by Steve B. »

My DF 1000 outhaul crank needs new bushings, or so I suspect.

It used to be adjustable in all but high winds without a problem, but now the aft crank retainer hole doesn't line up enough to insert the crank end in even medium wind.

The crank just goes through the boom with a cotter key and washer on the end. I have not yet tried disassembling it due to inclement weather.

My question is, how do you disconnect / reconnect the outhaul cable from the crank?

Thanks in advance,
