Lewmar 40 2 speed

Recommended Posts

Im having trouble removing the ratchet gear circled in red. removing that first seems to be the only way i can remove the bearings. 

It can't tell if it's splines, but it does look to be that way. The manuals aren't much help. 

Has anyone rebuilt one of these? It's pretty good otherwise, just sticky and needs a good clean.

Turn it over. There is probably a snapring or screw holding the shaft to a gear.

I don't think you have to turn it over. There is a hole in the side of the main casting that would be visible if the winch in the picture was turned 90 degrees counter clockwise. What needs to be removed is in there. That said this doesn't look like the bases shown in the Lewmar 40 manuals I Googled.

I got it apart in the end. The lads above were right, there is a snap ring at the bottom. Just to say so far whenever i email Lewmar or Harken they are very very helpful.

Man it's the handiest little jar going, i keep my pawl springs in it! 

I just relish the opportunity to reuse things.

Punch out the pin on the lower gear.  That will expose the circlip on the underside that holds the drive shaft in.  Remove that and lift the driveshaft off the top.

reusing pawl springs is false economy .....................................

ffs , once you've stripped it down that far take the opportunity to replace them , pawls too whilst your at it , makes a world of difference .
