my Barlow 50

I have a Barlow 50 winch circa 1980 and for the life of me I can't figure out how to dismantle it. Can anyone help me?

Hopefully this will help. They also sell parts if needed.
Site will not let me post actual link. Just add the www and type the words in!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

My 1973 Barlows dissemble the usual way: with an Allen key directly in the center under the star-shaped winch socket. But my biggest is a 28 or something, and is bronze, non-self-tailing.

Two tips: Lewmar pawls and springs will work OK if you lose something, and cut a winch-base-sized hole in a cardboard box and place it over the winch you are dissembling.

You can buy me a rum later.
