Windlass Identification

I'm having a lot of trouble identifying the windlass on my 1987 Moorings (Beneteau) 432. It is old enough that there are no markings on the capstan other than the chain size, and I can't see the below deck installation well enough to pick up identifying marks, even with a mirror and camera. Beneteau sent me a diagrom of the original installation, but the capstan/gypsy is different. Apparenty it is not made by Lewmar.

I am trying to get the capstan off to send to a machine shop, but it's not coming easily and I don't want to damage anything in the process. I've attached two pictures in hope someone will recognize it and start me in the right direction.
Thanks

no pics

Sorry for the lack of pictures. I haven't used this forum before and I can't get my pics to upload. I'll re-post when I solve the problem.

Contact Ward Richardson at Beneteau USA (Google!).

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Thanks, I did talk to Ward and he sent me a diagram that is not quite what I see on the boat. The windlass may be made by a French company, Accastillage Bernard, but they have not yet responded to my email for more info. Apparently I can post pictures once I have contributed 10 time to the forum. Interesting wrinkle.

Thanks Mitiempo. I would have been awhile figuring out that wrinkle.
