Hi guys

My 14 Turbo currently has the old style traveller system that has the cleat attached to the traveller itself. This does not work well. I was wondering what parts I need to install a centre mounted fixed cam cleat. Any help would be great.

Wow... must be an early 70's boat?

You need a swivel cleat, mounting plate and an padeye strap.

Page 48 of the 2006 catalog

#50007 Swivel cleat
#1162 "pad" mount (includes mount hardware)
#11470000 Padeye (requires 2ea 6-4 rivets #8010181)

Does your car have stainless rollers? The car # 105 is what works in your boat.

Hi
I don't think it had rollers at all, it was made of two plastic pieces held together by a metal sleave, i think

Matt - sounds like he had one of the original "Cat's Claw" travellers. Solid plastic slide (before roller bearing travellers were legal).

H14Turbo - when you get your new traveller installed, see how smoothly it works. Your old traveller might have damaged the inside of the track to the point where you might want to replace the track.

If you go with then new stuff, you will see a huge difference. If you want to save a little and get it used, I have a complete set up including the track, special rivets, traveler, swivel cam cleat (and base) and eyelet for the traveler line.

You can drop me a line if interested at danberger@mindspring.com

The base attaches with one rivetat the back near the traveler track. The swivel cam cleat is attached to the base with two screws that go through the base and then screw into the beam.

You would need a rivet gun for the rivet and a tap set to tap the holes for the screws. You may be able to get by with self tapping screws, but you need ones with countersunk heads so they won't interfere with the swivel.

Also, on the traveler, if you have to replace that, you need countersunk stainless rivets and they run about a buck each. You also have to grind down the sides of the tip of your rivet gun so it fits in the track.

If you are keeping your track, you would only need to rerivet the last two rivets on one side. You need to remove them so you can slide the car in the track.

Hope this helps.

Will the traveller #105 definitely fit on the old style traveller track?
Thanks
