etc...they look like nice winches.
I knew this would be a fun thread.
Photos would help but if it is anything like the attached it looks like there is a spanner surface sticking up. I would suspect that you hold the winch
with a winch
handle and use a slim spanner to undo the top...
You could also use a Wench
Other than that look for a circlip up near the top.
Post photos and we can make better guesses.
was interesting. Looks like "davis" (the wind
indicator folks) bought this out but trademarks are expired and there is nothing on the Davis Website. Totally unsupported product.
Did see some message board stuff of people looking for parts
