Re: Self Tailing Winches

What is a variety winch?

When people talk about prying off the top of a winch what they are referring to is the retaining ring that goes around the center drive hub. Once you take that ring off, the top plate comes off and usually the drum lifts off. (that is typical on standard non-ST winches) That being said, not all winches work that way. It helps to know the make and model of winch, and perhaps even post a pic.
