Barlow 23 winch

My Barlow 23 winch is making an ominous noise. I haven't found anything by searching (Google) on how to lubricate it. (I've had the boat just 2 yrs, and yes know it should have been done before now!)

There's an allen wrench type nut in the center, and I'm assuming I loosen and it's obvious from there on . . .

Any advice, information, sources for product instructions, anyone can offer?

All contributions gratefully accepted! Thank you.

See this winch list,

Follow the instructions for a winch similar to your 23, as well as you can. Use white greads on bearings and surfaces, light oil on pawls.

Arco Hutton in Australia bought up all the available spare parts for Barlow winches when the company stopped production. If you go to their web site you will see info on spares. If you email Allan Hutton he will, providing he has that model in his data base, send you spare parts list and necessary instructions for rebuilding. We rebuilt our old Maxwell winches with their help last year. They were of great assistance.

I didn't know there was a Barlow 23...18, 20, 24 and 26s, yes.

They are fairly straightforward to service. I do it every couple of years. Lewmar pawl springs will work in a pinch if you can't get them from Arco, because in my experience, these are the tiny pieces most likely to go flying in the drink when you dissemble the winches.

In fact, I now get an old plastic food bucket of the type that restaurants use to deliver 25 litres of oil, etc., cut a winch base-sized hole in it, and take the winch apart inside that. Saves some grief if pieces come apart.

The bucket idea is pretty common...though usually it is a cardboard box. I like the bucket idea better, since it is likely to be re-usable...the boxes rarely last.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Many thanks

I've bookmarked the websites, got the bucket ready, will get the grease and oil Tuesday.

What FUN I'm going to have. . . Actually, I enjoy this kind of work and the better I know every little thing on this old boat, the better.

Thanks the incredibly helpful info, all of you.
