Windlass dismantle procedure

I have a Simpson-Lawrence Atlantic Anchorman Sprint 900 windlass and it does not free fall when the clutch is loose. The manual recomends to dismantle, clean and lube once a year but does not say how. I don't want to force and break it. Does anyone have instructions on how to dismantle the above deck parts?

Go here and see if any of the model slisted are comparable to yours.

Also from another forum ... "after you remove the top plate with the handle the gypsy comes out. You have to then punch out two pins (save) to get the gypsy in 2 pieces. Use a sharpie and mark both sides so they align correctly when you go to put them back together."

(Usually to remove the top of a windlass you insert handle and wind backwards.)
