Jib Turnaround pulley
I made mine. (Well I found a homemade pulley in a bag of scrap aluminum parts I scrounged at a swap meet.)
I did make the bracket for it though!
I'll include some pictures.

Bracket installed. Also added a Du-bro wheel lock on the top of the rudder shaft for a little extra insurance. I pulled the rudder shaft out as well, to make sure they had put a flat spot on it for the retaining screw. They had!
