Any dealer should be able to order them for you.

I just had a local get one for his turbine. He also is doing some retooling and is removing the below the bar depower and is putting in a 4:1 pulley system above the bar like the velocity. Haven't seen it yet but should be interesting.

$40.00 plus shipping...which is usually a tad high in my opinion.

When I'm needing a WH replacement part, I usually buy a few other
items to off-set the shipping costs. Their replacement parts are priced
pretty darn cheap. For example I've purchased bladders & struts w/ valves
for just a few dollars more than a fix-it, stick-on valve.

Yes, one of our locals has just recently put one on his Turbine bar and says it works well. Maybe he'll see this and chime in... :wink:
