Hi Folks,

I have a B473, noticed today that the Windlass was not working :mad:

The relay / solenoid is working and there is voltage going to the Windlass when the remote is activated but zero motor activity!

So, out came the smart phone and google, scanning for any info on the windlass, a exploded diagram was what I was really looking for. Interesting thing was I could not find one anywhere. However I knew I had one at home on file!. :) BUT not on the boat.

I'll deal with the windlass tomorrow, BUT if anyone out there needs a parts list ( not that that's much use are the system is not made anymore) a wiring diagram, install guide AND a exploded view of the unit #S601 / and S2200 ( S2200 is the same except it has an additional vertical capstan installed)

if you need them shoot me a message Jason.reverie ( AT) Gmail.com

cheers

Im having the same issue here, and trying to find a user's manual for the Leroy Somer S601. I have the two page installation-and-use with exploded view, but thought there might be more info than that. Either of you guys figure out a solution? Replace a bearing maybe?
Thanks
