Barlow Self Tailing Winches - not tailing properly

We bought a '86 Irwin Citation 38 last year. The boat's owner didn't do much maintence, I imagine the winches were never serviced. We know that the barlow (2 speed) self tailing winches don't self tail properly. One doesn't do it at all and the other - the line constantly slips. We are planning on fully servicing the winches this spring - but I am wondering if the failure of the self-tailing feature might be that the rubberized grips at the top are old or not gripping or possibly that the jib sheet line isn't properly sized. Any ideas?

It's possible that the sheet is too small. Have you tried placing larger line in the self-tailer?

Re: Barlow Self Tailing Winches - not tailing properly

Sorry if this isn't the correct question area but am new to this posting stuff. I have a Barlow 27 and the selftailing jaws are simply spinning around the drum. Is there a spring or is there some internal plastic nub that may have sheared? I am going to order the new set of jaws from the Australian company but wonder if it will include all the parts.

Thanks
