Question Simpson-Lawrence Rebuild

I recently purchased a S-L 555 Windlass online. It came in today.
It is as dicribed and I am happy with it. However it is very stiff and should probably be taken apart and cleaned. I am looking for a manual and supplier of parts for the windlass.
Thanks, Rod

Sea Tiger

I have one of these babies, usually just referred to as a Sea Tiger. As Cam said, you can find the manual online, her eis the link http://en.lewmar.com/support/PDF/S-L...er-D1031-1.pdf

As to parts good luck with Lewmar, when I called then years ago they just referred me to a disributor in NY whose name I forget, but you can sart with Lewmar...

FWIW I think the gearing in the unit is inherently stiff, did you try to operate it by hand or with the handle? Although ours is stiff, when you are cranking on the handle with a good load on it, you don't notice the stiffness anymore...works like a charm.

Try P-Yacht for the parts; that's where I bought parts for my Hyspeed from.

Unfortunately the prices on the rebuild parts are very high and some are NLA.

HTH...
