Hi Carroll, and welcome to the forum.

A couple of points (none to do with the Wilcox Crittenden winches - but I'm sure there are folk here who will chime in on that):

You may want to fill in some of the blanks on your profile (click on the word "PROFILE" at the top right of the screen). This will help others understand any of your future questions and understand your background when you post advice or comments.

Second - Ettiquate and convention, on most boards and forums, is that typing in ALL CAPS is considered SHOUTING. Might I suggest that either all lower case, or mixed?

Again, welcome aboard.

Wilcox-Crittenden (Marinium) Winches have been out of production for over 30 years, and they no longer produce or service Winches.
You might be able to track down some information through the new owners of W-C (Thetford).

I want to offer come actual information that didn't come from a web search.

You can disassemble the winch by unscrewing the screw reset into the top of the winch. Looking straight down, there is a round hole in the top of the winch which the end of the winch handle fits into. Use it like a screwdriver to loosen that large screw and the drum should come right off.

If you haven't done this before or it hasn't been done in a long time, BE CAREFUL. Have some plastic wrapped around the area to catch any stray springs and cams. I'm short two rachets in one of my C-W winches and I'm expecting I'll have to replace them this winter.
