Re: How to Reassemble Simpson Lawrence HySpeed Windlass

Bazz,
If you have to replace bushing/bearings, then you are going to have to tear the unit down to bare bones as the bushings are difficult to get out otherwise.

First you must remove the spindle assembly. Just unscrew that as you would a large nut. Then you can pull the gypsy off the shaft. If it is seized, you'll need. To use a wheel puller, but it will come off. That will expose the clutch cone. In order to get that off you need to drive out the spring pin. A pin driver works best, but any flat head punch that is sized just under the diameter of the pin will work. I can't remember the size off the top of my head, but I think it is around 1/4" or less. The clutch cone should come off pretty easy, but if not, use a puller. This is made of tuffnol and is somewhat fragile so ease it off. This will expose your shaft completely and allow you to remove the cover. On the port side of the unit you will have to pull the drum off. Again, a puller works great here. Once inside the unit you can remove the chains by removing the master links at the operating lever. You only need to take off one end of the chain to accomplish what you want. This will free the gears and you can now pull the shaft with the gears from the housing. At this point you can go through the whole unit and decide what needs replacing and repairing. Let me know if you get stuck somewhere. Good luck.

Re: How to Reassemble Simpson Lawrence HySpeed Windlass

Banjoman,

Thank you for your reply. I guess I'm baffled by the first step: "remove the spindle assembly" How do I do that exactly? I try to unscrew the first "wheel" (clutch wheel nut, item #6 on the exploded view - see attached), going counterclockwise? If not, please advise.

Best,

Re: How to Reassemble Simpson Lawrence HySpeed Windlass

Yes, I'm pretty sure it is counter clockwise. If you look closely at the threads you can double check the direction. Good luck. Sorry for the short response, but I'm working right now.

Yes, counterclockwise - I can see it from the threads, now that some rust is gone. But it is STUCK. This part has been soaking in WD-40 and Liquid Wrench for a week now. I'll try with a torch and some hydraulics tonight.

Re: How to Reassemble Simpson Lawrence HySpeed Windlass

Mine, too, was very seized and it took a great amount of force and a bit of hammering as I recall. Good luck. Be patient and kind to it. It is a great piece of equipment that no doubt was neglected at some time. It deserves some TLC. I just recently rebuilt a 35 year old Yanmar 2qm15 that was very neglected and is now like brand new, but between the two rebuilds, my partner thinks the windlass was the bigger miracle.... and I tend to agree. Again, good luck!

Did you get my email and photo? It was pretty easy to reassemble.
