Re: Winch maintenance Q, what nut is this?
If you're going to replace the pawls, replace the springs too. How do the sockets that the pawls slip into look (once you have the grease cleaned out)?
I cleaned and greased my Barlow 25 self tailing winches a year ago. The chrome was pitted, and I was afraid of finding repair parts. I replaced them this year with a pair of Anderson 40 Full Stainless. The new winches have a smaller foot print, but just as much (more?) power, and I can get parts easily.
I also replaced the mast mounted Barlow 19 on the mast (referenced above) with an Andersen 10.
