What forestay? 

I was once told that there are two set screws at the top swivel, if those come out the whole thing comes apart. The foil is the stay.

I believe that was the "twinstay" for racing, it was solid with no stay inside but there was a furling kit available for it.

Then again, I could be wrong, it's been years since I worked on one.

Here is some info from sailnet, back when they were just old, not antiques.

Thank you. The bearing housing was the bitch that I had to get off and couldn’t figure it out. Then yesterday I had to remove  the extrusions and the inner sleeves were a mother to remove as well. They built these things heavy duty (as in they didn’t want someone to take them apart :P
