Re: Enkes winches

From looking at those exploded diagrams, I suspect that the Enkes people spent a lot of time studying Barient winches.

I wonder if they changed the shaft diameters and that sort of thing or if Barient parts would simply plug in.

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.

Re: Enkes winches

2nd try, my 1st reply did not add. Thanks for the drawings. My main shaft was stuck in the coupler piece had to drive it out. if I would of stopped and looked up inside I would of seen a retainer ring. I drove it out. the retaining ring was bent, will need to be replaced. I think the bottom coupler should of not been a press fit. or maybe they allow you to drive it out and then reach inside and remove the retaining ring.? do not know why it is so far up inside.?? I also did my 20, 2 speed self tailing. They were easy to grease. Thanks waybad

Re: Enkes winches

Re Winches
It is possible to remove the bottom gears with out taking the winch off the boat if you can remove the pins (this is on the 26 ASC ) The pins are threaded on top so you can insert a small bolt and try and lift from the bolt .if they can be lifted out you can service lower gears. Mine wouldn't ! So then you need to take the winch off and knock the pins out from underneath .
Like most of the enkes the springs or wear and bits of rust on the pawls and their housing tend to be the problem. It is possible to bend a bit of spring steel as temporary measure to fix the pawls if they don't spring out . I think it is a bad design, I have had problems with three of the enkes winches all with the same thing.

Re: Enkes winches

I have not found any Stainless spiral keeper ring to fit my enkes 28. I was hoping Lewmar would fit but not even close. Any suggestions.
Thanks Waybad

Big industrial fastener supplier. Ask for Stainless Steel Spiro-Loc's
