Re: Removing pawls and main gear on barient winch

Yea, straight side goes on the pawl. Just dont want to take it apart before I know how it goes together. It almost looks like if I just trash the spring the pawl will come out and then just replace the pawl with the spring in its intended location. The main gear really looks like its just pinned in somehow. I dont see any threads or anything. Its a tough angle to tell. I am a mechanical contractor so I am not unfamiliar with dealing with similar type things, just new to sailing and dont want to limit my time before I get back out any longer than need be. IE, I dont want to f up my winch. Almost thinking about just leaving it as is and re greasing and oiling. I have it pretty well cleaned but would really at least like to change out the springs.
