Here are two kits that I bought for my 42's and 55-ST's:
Lewmar P/N - 19700200 - Winch spares kit for 2-speed winches (size 6 to 64 winches)
Lewmar P/N - 19700100 - Winch spares kit (basic) - for smaller single speed winches
I'd say that many of the parts in these kits will fit older winches; specifically the pawls, pawl springs, spring clips and shaft retainers. Several parts in these kits are for newer winches and will be throw-away depending on your winch model/age. Be VERY careful with any of the other internal components in your winch like caged bearings; gears, stripper rings, plastic sliders, etc. If it goes in the drink you'd be better off to hire a diver than try and find a replacement; many of these parts may no-longer be available from Lewmar.
WD-40 tends to gum up when it gets wet with salt-water; as does many types of grease. I only use the Lewmar products; even if used liberally it is not very expensive and will last quite a long time between rebuilds.
P/N 19701100 - Calcium Sulphonate Grease (tub)
P/N 19701600 - Pawl Oil (55ml) - Put this in a sealed ziplock and store upright because it tends to leak once opened
