I am restoring my Cascade Chinook. It is equipped with Merriman winches. They were removed to replace pieces of rotten deck.
I need to disassemble the winches, both to clean and lubricate them and to remount them on the new deck. I cannot, however, figure out how to open them up. There are no circlips or snap rings on either the top or bottom of the winches. There aren''t any screwdriver slots, nuts or bolts, either, except for the winch drive.
I''m stumped. The people at the boatyard are stumped.
Does anyone have experience with Merriman Brothers winches?
