This service manual, from the first page of this thread, also works.

Perhaps the lewmar winch manual volume 6 can be located at
http://www.international-boat-spares...%20VOL%206.pdf
The pdf file contains schematic diagrams of lewmar winches manufactured in 1980's.

Re: Servicing older lewmar winch

For posterity,

I solved my issue by soaking the pin in PB Blaster overnight, and buying a tap which was nearly as large as the pin itself, and a larger hammer. A few taps cleared it right out. Removed the lower gears, the bottom circlip, and retaining clip, then the rest came apart easily. De-greased with mineral spirits (overnight, because MAN was it rough,) then a rinse with diluted simple green. Mystery oil on the pawls, and a very light coat of lewmar grease on the components. Reassembled. They are just beautiful, now.

A press has crossed my mind, as well. Possibly fashioning something out of c-clamps, and a bit of scrap metal, more likely. Thanks for giving it a go!

I was only able to find exploded parts view on link. The pin of course has serrations on the bottom, which indicates removal in that direction...as you have stated. An arbor press would be a better approach than tapping and risking peening. The winches I rebuilt came apart readily, I did not have the manual. I apologize for jumping to unfounded conclusions.

Per the shop manual, it is designed to tap "DOWNWARD," with the winch standing securely on its base, with a clear area for the spindle to exit.

Between you, me, and the internet, I've tapped upward as well hoping to shock whatever binding was occurring enough to break the spindle bearing loose. No joy.

On the 40's, the spindle and ratchet gears must be removed prior to removing the lower circlip, per the shop manual. The larger ratchet gear (within the base) prohibits removal of the circlip.

Within the context of the shop manual, I'm stuck at step "V" under full annual service. It wont budge, and I'm marring the surface badly with a tap.
