Old Lewmar Winches
So I have some old Lewmar no 7 single speed winches on my 1979 S2 7.3. I took them apart to service them for the first time the other day and discovered that there are no bearings underneath the drum like the manual shows that came with the service kit I ordered. I cleaned/greased them and all that stuff but now that I have put them back together they are not turning freely at all (not that they turned freely to begin with). They move with no problem but only when you grab them and turn them. I can't give them a turn and have them keep going like the Gibbs winches on the cabin top.
Is this normal for these and if not is there anything I can do to get them working right again?
