Hoyt 32 CamberSpar sheave

Hello all ~

All I wanted to replace this 30 year old worn sheave. But, then I noticed the retainer at the end of the spar is frozen in place. I can turn it with water pumps but I don't think it should be that tight. Seems it would not rotate with the wind to give me proper shape on a tack. I'm I not understanding the mechanical process that is taking place on a tack regarding the camber spar?

Help guys! ;)

Hello Chip, yes that end has to swivel freely.

Fwiw,
I have had good luck just using wd40 and working items that have similar restrictive corrosion. Haven’t done this in this particular instance. Best
