I am trying to service
an old Lewmar
#8 standard winch
. I have taken off the drum and exposed the innards, but am stuck on how to take it apart any further. The service
manual says the following:
1. Carefully prise off circlip. - Done
2. Remove top plate and lift
off drum. - Done
3. Remove and clean the drum bearings - ?????????
The manual makes it seem like the drum bearing should just come off easily, as they don't instruct any further than "remove it". The washer at the top of the bearing is proving to be difficult to figure out how to remove.
Can anyone help me out on how to remove that washer so I can pull off the drum bearing?
