I haven't heard of superlube, but was told that using any lithium grease was the same as the lewmar stuff. any of you have any experience with Barient 17's? single speed self-tailing. I have a new (old) boat and am overhauling the winches which was a process just to get them off the coamings. But, they actually don't look too bad inside. I figured WD40 everything I could, dry, then apply Li-grease to the bearing etc and some transmission oil to the pawls. I don't have any of the diagrams for the winches and don't know how much to "take apart"- was just going to explore and see what easily comes apart. This sound reasonable? thanks- brad
