Help - Disassembling Lewmar ST30 Self-Tailing, One-Speed Winch

all the lewmars i've ever serviced had either a circlip or bolts holding the top plate down. this one has neither.

according to the instructions i'm supposed to unscrew the top plate. i've tried but not too hard because it's made of plastic, i think. right now i'm pb blasting it and tapping it with a plastic hammer but no go.

has anyone done this before? am i turning it in the right direction (meaning like a common american screw?).

the plot thickens...

apparently the 'st30' designation has applied to many different models. mine is an older (and apparently rarer) model that was only produced between 1978 and 1983, and known as the 'hold fast' model.

it does apparently have a 'screw on' top, but does not resemble the current st30 screw on model.

will try to contact lewmar tomorrow....

peter linwick at florida rigging is the best.

he was extremely helpful and super knowledgeable. although this particular version of the lewmar st30 winch has been out of production for more than 25 years he knew it immediately and explained the reasons for my problem and the solution to it.

this guy KNOWS rigging.
