On mine there was a pin that needed to be driven out before any further disassembling could be done. I eventually reached a sticking point as the whole assembly was seized from corrosion and the previous owner had epoxied the screw holes.
Instead, to lubricate (if that's why you're disassembling your windlass) I put in Marvel Mystery Oil, shook it up, let it sit a while, and repeated until globs of gunk stopped coming out. Then, I refilled it and used a grease gun on the nipple on the gypsy end to shove in some marine grease. Cranks like a charm.
