Re: Enkes winches

You probably know that Enkes has suspended operations which probably means gone out of business.

You could try Holland Marine in Canada who used to import them.

You might take a look at this
ENKES winch maintenance - Restoring Jout Caprice 75

I have a PDF of an old Enkes catalog probably not much help I can email it if you like.

Good Luck

Re: Enkes winches

FWIW, properly maintained winches rarely need any parts other than springs & pawls and you may be able to replace yours with Lewmar, Harken or another currently manufactured winch. I use Lewmar bits in my old Barients.

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

I have just this morning taken apart an Enkes 22ASR? 2 speed self tailing winch and they are pretty simple beasts. I could not find a manual and according to others, Enkes is not trading at the moment.

To take apart, there is a grub screw on the self tailer which needs to come out. (m4 allen key). Once removed, the self tailing arm needs to be lifted up by about o.5 inch. This can be tricky if the winch has not been greased recently. I used penetrating oil and the tentative use of a thick bladed screwdriver. It will lift straight up. It will not come off because the arm is trapped in the gripping vice. Instead the whole barrel lifts off with the self tailer attached, to reveal two sets of roller bearings (plus spacers). On both occasions, the roller bearings were stuck inside the drum but fell out without any effort.

There are some gears at the bottom which drive the barrel but these are captive so cannot fall out.

My servicing was simply to use a toothbrush dipped in diesel to clean up the gears at the bottom. I soaked the roller bearings in a tub of diesel before using a toothbrush to clean it. I regreased the whole mechanism and the job was done in 20 minutes. The hard part was getting the ST arm vertically upward without damaging the painted barrel. I think a puller may help when I do it again.

There are no springs or that many moving parts that can get lost. very simple winch

Re: Enkes winches

Could not find any pawls. I believe the winch needs to be taken off the deck to reach them. That is too much just for routine service so I guess the manufacturer only intended them for a more intensive overhaul. I will probably have a look at the end of the season when I am less likely to lose bits over the side.

Re: Enkes winches

Sounds like a plan. 'Not sure about the model that you have but I think you'll find that access is from the bottom after removing the winch from the boat. Light oil only on the pawls

Re: Enkes winches

I just came across this post, sorry if it's a bit old, but I tried to gather a bunch of enkes blowup diagrams and photos of my own Enkes AR22 before they went out of business. I put them online at

monjouet.ryan-anderson.com/post/2010/02/27/ENKES-winch-maintenance

hope this helps someone!

I'd rather be sailing

Re: Enkes winches

Hi Waybad,

Seems I had a diagram for your winch on my computer for some odd reason. I have added it to the page at

monjouet.ryan-anderson.com/post/2010/02/27/ENKES-winch-maintenance

I have 3 enkes 28 diagrams, so I put them all up just in case.

There are more that I saved over the years. I should probably add them all...

Hope this helps!

I'd rather be sailing
