All, I took off my lines to clean them up and figured it would be so simple I did not need to make note of how they were configured. They seem to overlap which does not seem right. Can someone post a picture? Thanks

Now you know why old geezers like myself take pictures before we dismantle anything. I asked my Doc to do that once, he said it’s only going to look like a long dark tunnel.Thanks All. The first pic from PaulJ gave me what I needed. I like how he has a single line and how it is routed. Not sure now why mine had two pieces of line.
AllUGet you are absolutely right. My mistake was looking at it and thinking "that is simple, hold my beer."Now you know why old geezers like myself take pictures before we dismantle anything. I asked my Doc to do that once, he said it’s only going to look like a long dark tunnel.
There is a heavier line that runs the to blocks on both ends of the piston. The aft and upper end of the line is made to double block. That double block has smaller line that goes to the swivel on the mast. It gets turned and directed thru a flat x3 block and runs to the cockpit.My vang has two lines, one heavier than the other. I assume this is the factory setup.
Are you sure you don’t have a “cascaded” vang as that would explain the two lines. If the original setup was and you don’t put it back you will have to exert a lot more force to accomplish the setting you want.Not sure now why mine had two pieces of line.
