desleeve lines to changeout slingshot turbine swivel???

Postby knot_moving » Sun Jan 19, 2014 12:35 am

I am replacing my swivel and it seems like I will have to take the sleeving off to get the lines thru the holes in the swivel? If I was installing then it looks like I could push the loop thru the hole from the bottom, then thru the slot formed by the pins and pull the sleeving thru. Not sure I see a way to do this in reverse.

Anyone had any luck? Not a big deal to take the sleeves off and splice a loop but didn't want to if I don't have to.

Pretty sure you should not have to do that....
The safety will go through once taken apart and the same goes for the other that gets removed from the bar side larks head.

Safety was no problem - it was the sleeved end of the front lines that would not easily go thru.
I was adding a 4:1 above the bar trim at the same time, so needed to shorten the front lines by a foot anyway - so just took the sleeves off and spliced in a loop where I needed it.

Took it out today and I love it - so much nicer than the below the bar trim.
