Old Barient Winches

My Barient #22 self-tailing winches on my '87 Tartan are not turning smoothly and keep getting louder. I assume parts my not be easy to find and I have not previously dome any pm on this equipment. Any advice out there? Try opening them up and see what I have?

Re: Old Barient Winches

I have some old Barient winches that need rebuilt, I would be interested to know if there is a source for parts, manuals etc, too.

HUTTON-ARCO Yacht Winches

They have some spares. Pawl and springs are compatible with Lewmar Winches and vice versa.

Re: Old Barient Winches

Things like pawls and pawl springs are still available at many marine chandleries (West Marine included).

I sacrifice a plastic dish pan and cut a hole in the bottom just a little larger than the base of the winch. Put the dish pan over the winch before disassembly, the pan can catch errant pieces that I don't manage to keep my hands on. The pawls and springs are the most likely to go astray and easiest to replace, what you don't want to lose is any of the other parts that are harder to obtain.

Cleaning and re-assembly is really pretty straightforward, no special tools required. We do ours every year or two and they are still going strong. On a couple of the winches you can't get the last gear out without removing from the deck, so we don't do that as often, but for the most part they can be completely disassembled from the top down.
