Barient 21 Spring - Legacy -

Recommended Posts

There was already a series of posts regarding this conundrum... This old winch uses two types of pawl springs.

One set con be replaced by the repair set presently offered by Lewmar.

 The lower unit needs smaller springs. 
The housing of the pawl in which the ring is lodged is 0.249” ( max diameter of the spring when not compressed.
If the outside diameter is 0.249”, the inside diameter would be just less than 0.2” I guess… 
The arms are 0.3” from when they “leave” the circumference.
One of the arms is bent at 90 degree when it leaves the circumference.pThe wire is 0.0225”.

It seems that <sales@huttonwinches.com>  can help me, but it is steep for just two springs!. They have 5/16" springs and 1/4" springs.

20 x 01-300 springs 5/16"                   $20.00

20 x 01-330 springs 1/4"                     $30.00

Insured air mail for any or all   $25.00.

Would anyone have some in their "shop" ? Would anyone need some spare?

I had some old Barlows that needed springs and the off the shelf Lewmars didn't fit. So I went to a shop that sold custom springs with my sample spring. He gave me a meter of spring wire. Rolled it around a pencil, bent the right angle bend with a pair of pliers, and trimmed. Tried a few times before I got the diameter and everything correct but a meter of wire goes a long way. Those springs sailed thousands of miles!

Those piddly springs are an abomination, no matter what brand.

The last thing you need at sea is a spring that borders on the invisible.

Edit;  Even more of an abomination is the arrangement above, with two different sized pawls and springs.

Who thought that was a good idea?
