Mast Tabernacle

Terence Singh

Bud, l am the new owner of Zaca #757.
As you know, I had the mast un-stepped in preperation for shiping to my home town.
The mast pin was frozen into the mast and tabernacle.
You talked about a sawzall for removal!!!
Would you be so kind as to detail step by step the best removal and replacement method for the pin?
Should the internal Aluminium tube be replaced?
What is the exact diameter of the ss pin?
How do I prevent this from happening again.
Thanks in advance.
Terry. Toronto.

Take a look under (In the yard) and then under mast removal.

It seams we all have this issue untill we fix it.
If you keep the Aluminium sleve Make sure you put a grease zerk on it so as to keep out the salt water.

Page A-21 of my Westsail Service Manual describes the problem, and the fix.
