Re: Removing pawls and main gear on barient winch
Can you post a pic or two of what you're looking at?
Barlow/Barient winches are held together with Allen bolts (usually filled with dirt and gunk) and are one of the few where absolutely everything comes apart, right down to the baseplate, so I can't believe you wouldn't be able to get at the pawls on yours somehow..
