How to dissassemble this winch?

You can see in the attached photo there is a phenolic ring which prevents the roller bearings from sliding up. I can't see any non-destructive way to remove it. There is no screw in the winch socket. Presumably there is a spindle retaining key under the roller bearings, but I can't see it. This is a two speed winch on my 1986 Jeanneau, but the label is worn off. The second picture is the label of my one speed center board winch, presumably the same brand.

Re: How to dissassemble this winch?

I don't know that particular winch, but most I've worked on were very similar, I believe the ring will come up, probably being stuck down by old hard grease. Work it slowly and carefully (parts for that winch may be hard to come by) and it should come free. We use diesel as the cleaner.

Thanks capta, but the ring spins freely, it is under the teeth above it.

There must be a way to remove the seat for the handle including the gear. After its removal the slipboard materal should come off and you can remove the bearings.

Re: How to dissassemble this winch?

I'd guess the central spindle is retained under the base of the casting by a spirolock or snap ring something - you'll have to dismount the winch to access it.

Re: How to dissassemble this winch?

That looks a lot like the old Lewmar winches I had on my old boat. Those winches could not be fully disassembled without unbolting it from the deck.

Re: How to dissassemble this winch?

I vote with JonB and ShockT. If there's no visible way to remove the upper parts, then unmounting the winch probably will reveal they are secured from below. Since Beneteau owns Jeanneau, it is *possible* they'd recognize the winch and be able to confirm that for you.

Ah. Alas. I was afraid I might have to remove it, I was hoping someone might have some secret trick. Removing the starboard winch will be no problem, I can access it easily. The port side will require taking down a lot of the interior.

Re: How to dissassemble this winch?

Sorry, I probably should have read the post more carefully. I got distracted since I could not open the picture of the winch with the drum off.

Re: How to dissassemble this winch?

If its free can you just lube it, no need to remove the bearing unless to replace it, but it doesn't sound like that's what you're trying to do.
