Re: Need help identifying this winch

Awesome answer!

I'll send them the details and see what they think.

Let's cross fingers your thought is right.

Thanks!

Re: Need help identifying this winch

I would start checking on Ebay. Always dozens of winches for sale in all makes and manufacturers. You might just see a picture of yours.

Every Arco I ever saw had "Arco USA" stamped on the top.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

The lower casting and bearing cages look like a barrient or hutton but the top is??

Send a pic to Allen Hutton and ask, may have been a retro ST setup.

sales@huttonwinches.com

Alternatley send Minnies in San Diego a pic, they have propably seen every imaginable winch come through there.

Great!
I contacted both suggested sources.
Let's hope at least one can help.

Thanks again.

Could be Enkes- a Danish winch- they stopped production 2014. Google "enkes winch self tailing" - Then click "images. I saw at least 1 picture with a
wave pattern on ST.--Tim

Re: Need help identifying this winch

There's always the possibility that it's essentially a knock off. A winch made by a boatbuilders yard for a run of production boats, many years back. As it was cheaper for the yard to reverse engineeer something already made, cloning it, than it was for them to buy name brand winches & bolt them to the boats.
Perhaps one of the yards which built a lot of boats in the 70's or 80's in Asia somewhere?

Re: Need help identifying this winch

As I recall, ARCO never made Barient winches, and their current production line, which goes at least back to ~1990 is nothing like a Barient internally. for instance, there are no needle bearings on the intermediate gears or shafts in our ARCO winches, but every Barient that I have had, going back to late 60s has had such, and is well marked with the brand name cast into the drum or stripper.

ARCO does have tooling to produce parts for Barients, and is a good source for info.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

Twenty five years ago I bought a pair of winches just like yours that looked identical to the Barient, but we're made in Russia and came from a Russian cruiser who had run out of money and was selling his boat parts to survive. The spare pawls I bought for them were for a Barient and were a perfect fit. There is no identification of any sort on my winches,and the quality of the castings leaves something to be desired, but yours could be also knock-offs of the same heritage.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

Hey Lawrence, great comment! She was built in Finland which shares a border with Russia.
I'll wait for Arco's reply and if they have no definite answer I try to get some Barient pawls.
Do you have a picture of your winches?

Thanks!
