Profurl B35 swivel bushing

Jan 15, 2010
Hunter Legend 40.5 Victoria
The swivel on my Legend 40.5 is stuck on the top and it looks (from inspection a loft) very much like the swivel bushing(s) are jammed/damaged. From the detailed parts list I can see a Bushing kit P153029 which I am unable to locate any where. I have sent an inquiry to Profurl (Wichard) US & France more than a week ago without any reply.
I wonder if anyone did source and change these bushings. The boat is now stored on hard until November so I do have a time to get ready.
I would appreciate some advise. Regards. Frank

I don’t know if this will help you or not.... We replaced the bearings in the lower unit on our very old Profurl. We measured the diameter of the balls and bought replacements online from McMaster Carr.

I've changed the bushings on my profurl swivel recently. They are located in Quebec.
They will confirm the part number and give you a local store to buy from. They're about $40 for both bushings. They will respond within a couple of days
