MYF-TB-PB3 USED ON VINTAGE MARBLEHEAD
Below is the new MYF-TB-PB3-J turnbuckle designed for "J" boats and other very large boats.
The eye threads are #8-32, and the hook material diameter is 1/8 inch.
This item is like the standard PB2 turnbuckle. The eye threading is #4-40 and the shackle uses a # 2-56 hex bolt, however the threaded length is 1 1/4" minimum. This allows for more adjustment, and less chance of becoming undone due to high vibration during sailing.
The cost for this item ( PN: MYF-TB-PB2-XL) is $16.50 each. The added cost is due to more material and more complicitaed machining.
