Winch Maintenance

We have a 1997 Beneteau 321 (new to us) The primary winches are Lewmar Ocean series 2 speed self trailing # 40s
Started to service winches (complete strip down)The problem I ran into I am unable to remove the largest gear set due to the positioning of the opening for the gear at the base of the winch and the position of the coming.Is there a trick to remove this gear pak without removing the winch base.
Is it feasible to file a pocket in the coming to allow the gear pak to slide out then gel cote the raw edges?

Dismount the winch and service it on a bench - don't start hacking at your boat to gain clearance. The mounting bolts probably need resealing after 15 years anyway. When you remount them you may be able to reorient them to gain the clearance for the next time you service them.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
