Default Outrigger maintenance question

These are the rollers on my outriggers. Just got the boat and setting everything up. Any ideas on how to clean these and how to lubricate them to keep them cleaner???

Are they serviceable ? If so I would just replace the rollers , or maybe the whole assembly .

Send them to Taco - shipping is pricey but you’ll love the results.

Those are probably not recoverable. You could try cleaning with some sort of corrosion inhibitor and a sonic cleaner. IMO I think it will be quicker and cheaper to replace them.

Try Collonite metal polish on them and Corrosion X...they might clean them up.
