Hi,
A friend of mine is offering me his furling system (great condition) from a boat he decommissioned (26 Grampian). I am not sure how to establish if that system could be transplanted to my boat (1984 27' TR) . What is the required length of the head stay? Did anyone do anything like that?
Please advise.

Knowing what brand of furler it is may help others help you with your question.

You need to know the length of your sail, and the length of the furler system. Do you hank on your sail? What type of roller foil is used? Will the furler base fit over your bow connection or will it need to be modified? Pictures, information about the furler and your boat are the place to start, as "Justsomeguy" pointed out.
