Re: Removing pawls and main gear on barient winch
My commiserations. Having spent last Saturday replacing pawl springs on our Anderson winches I know exactly what you mean. What directions there are have printing too small to read and "remove pawls" in no way explains how to disconnect the springs allowing the pawl to slide free. Once you work it out everything is dead easy but that first winch was a right bustard.
