The winch in question is a Barient 18, installed on the mast.
Does anyone has an exploded view of this (or equivalent) winch that shows where a cotter pin should be placed?
Thank you for any help on this issue. BTW, I even forgot I was going sailing.
Not exactly sure about the cotter pin for a Barient 18, but there is one that is used to retain the IDLER GEAR SHAFT to the main base on the 27. I don't have an exploded view for the 18, but this link will give you views of several winches in the 18 range. Hope it helps.
