Does anyone have a spare one of these off of a traveler car?

I'd throw a couple of bucks your way if you do. I'd stop by the local dealer but he closes at 5 and I never have time to get over during normal store hours.

My current setup has a mini block attached to a pad eye in the mast track.why can't I just use that pad eye to connect the bottom block of the 6:1 downhaul? I know it's not technically class legal but other than that is there some practical reason to use the traveler car part?

Can't you call your dealer during the day and have him send it to you. Most likely, he has it in stock, then your system will work properly and you're not presidentializing it.

I guess I could give him a call. He generally isn't very helpful, especially with such a low dollar item.

I hear you there, we get the same great service from our dealer. I look up the number before calling to make it easier to get the right part. But he is close to the lake making a Saturday afternoon broken part fixable for Sunday.

I finally found the part. I bought it from the dealer in Indianapolis when I was there for a weekend wedding.

Here are pictures for those who are curious:

I think it may have slid up a little...time to break out the file and make a notch to keep it set.
