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?).
