Hi All,

I got myself a new set of Turbo Fins today, instructions seemed fairly straight forward however I've come across a problem, one of my masts won't unscrew, what I mean by this is that although the mast turns, it won't wind out, the mast housing or thread housing is also turning with the mask. Whatever holds the thread housing in place seems to have come loose. I thought I ask here for advice before I start trying to break it down into pieces to get to back of it.

Thanks,
Jarrod.

You will need to get a replacement sprocket from your dealer (warranty)
If it doesn't unscrew its got too much loctite from the factory and now the insert is spinning - the sprocket needs to be replaced.
