bearing my soul
I''ve just changed the clutch bearing at the end of the motor shaft on my 12V anchor windlass.
I''ve tested the windlass, but not under load. It winds up (i.e. in anchor retrieving mode), but just clonks when I reverse it. Is this because it has to be put under load to function in "drop anchor" mode?
I''ve put the bearing in so that it winds up when it turns in the direction of the arrow stamped on it.
Of course, there may be some other reason for this problem. In any event, I''d be very grateful for any advice.
