Thanks all, for the help. I guess the leading edge wear I was talking about was the coating coming off from the ferrels, so probably still good. The two verticals are different lengths where the end cracked off of one. I like the idea of buying the leading edge getting two new verticals, and have an extra center length, I think first I'll try the verticals using them as horizontals and the others as the verticals. Nothing to lose, and cheaper, now that I know they are all 36". The leading edge length looks like it has a little extra play. A complete replace is about $85-90 dollars.
I had tried to fly it as is and failed. Maybe it's the line lengths. Did this kite require a leader to make the the upper or lower lines longer? (My lines are all the same length. )
The comment about the "Dark Side" is something my friend Spence has been saying for years.
