Barient Model 17...Am I Nuts?

OK...here's the deal. I took it apart today and cleaned it, then put it back together. It now functions as a single speed, but my literature has me confused. I have not used it yet, so I couldn't tell you what it did before the overhaul. My literature calls it a Barient 17 2 speed winch, but when you get further into the literature, it gives a 1st speed gear ratio, then for the 2nd speed, it gives no ratio leading me to believe it is really a single speed unit. My 21 series give a 1st and 2nd speed ratio in the literature.
Is there any way I could have flubbed this simple job and turned a two-speed into a single speed? I'd hate to think I could screw up something this simple...
