rope clutch handle replacement

I can't figure this one out… My new (to me) Olson 911s has a Lewmar D2 triple rope clutch and one of the handles is broken…and of course it's the middle handle.

I now have a replacement handle but do I have to remove the entire clutch from the deck to replace the handle? Or can someone explain to me how to disassemble the clutch from the topsides?

Thanks,
Olgriz

Yes I think you will have to remove the clutch from the deck because the hinge pin goes from side to side.

I do believe you have to remove LEWMAR line clutches to service the guts. There's no way to remove the plastic housing without doing so IIRC.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but they look similar to my Spinlock clutches. I recently replaced a handle WITHOUT removing the clutch from the boat. If yours has thru bolts on the cheeks, it should disassemble.

Thanks everyone. I hope you're right Marc. I downloaded the exploded view from Lewmar's site but it only shows a single clutch—hard to tell about the triple. I guess I'll just have to roll up my sleeves, put on my glasses, and start tinkering.

A single can have the handle replaced while on deck but the middle one of three is boxed in so has to be removed to replace the handle.
