    replacing of pulleys (with bearings) on Cover Star auto pool

    I recently had my pool cover replaced after 9 yrs. The pulley bearings were pretty noisy so I thought that I could lubricate them to help out. I removed housing that covers the pulley (bad move) & now because of the tension of the ropes it will not go back in place. Both side were noisy but thank goodness, I only removed one on the left side looking from the diving board. I tried for 2 hours yesterday evening without success. Any suggestions other than calling the pool store. I looked on the pool cover manufacturer but couldn't find anything. Can I find some magic fix for my problem. I will probably order 2 new pulleys but have bit yet. Just trying to put it back together like it was before.

    Welcome to TFP.

    Someone with experience will come along, but in the mean time, a picture of the problem would help.

    You need to pull a little slack from the rope reel and this will give you enough room to replace the pulleys.
