From the orientation, I'd guess it is an antipodean make.

Meaning down under? Or Australian make? Lol

I'm not sure why the pics are posting upside down, that has not happened before. But I also don't have a handle for that winch and can't seem to find one that's not a star pattern configuration.

Lots of generators for this on the web. Here's one that actually explains how it works:

Re: Need help identifying a winch

I've never come across a winch top like that and a bit of googling didn't show anything.

For those having difficulty turning the winch the right side up:

Thanks for flipping for me.. Lol

I might just end up replacing them.. After I try to overhaul them and end up making them totally useless.. Lol
