Older Lewmar Winches, Maintenance

I have older (1977) # 40 two speeds and a 25 and 16. All of them are slightly different from any schematic that I can find. There is a bronse cog on top of the spindle post that wont allow the removal of the bearing races. how do I dissassemble these winches. The 16's are quite simmilar to the drawings, except that there are no nylon keyways to be removed to take out the spinal post. Thanks for the help everyone!!!!

Lewmar and Australian Winch Company are completely different companies. Lewmar has a website,

Lewmar Home

and they show schematics for modern winches. They also list Master Parts Distributors by geographic regions. The Master Parts Distributor for your region should have the schematics for older winches. Good luck finding the info you need.

I had some 1977 vintage Lewmar winches on my last boat and if I remember right they had to be removed from the deck to get them apart. Sorry but I am pretty sure that is what you have to do.

One advantage of getting them off is that you can work on them in a work shop and not have to worry about dropping bits in the water.

Also it is likely time to rebed them any way.
