I take a 5-gallon plastic bucket (old pool supply bucket or Home Depot etc.) to the boat and disassemble into the bucket. I take the bucket to where I work and let the 55 gallon parts washer pump circualte solvent through the bucket all day while I work. I empty the fluid and the mass of dirt from the bucket and take it home to finish & re-grease. Without a parts washer - take the bucket to an auto parts store and negotiate for the service. The value is that you don't have to own or dispose of the solvent. Take photos as you disassemble and review as needed to put them back together. I only do one at a time in one bucket.

Re: Winch Maintenance Question...

If you dont have a "deck key" to remove the top of the winch, a pair of needle nose pliers works fine.
Remember that thier is no supplier of Barrient parts other than used (the last time I checked); be careful.

Re: Winch Maintenance Question...

As far as the rough drum surface, I had asked the Chrome guy to preserve the rough surface of the drum as best he could and it worked out fine. Another intersting aside was courtesy of the surveyor in Ft. Lauderdale. He used a preprinted multi page form that he simply filled in the blanks. This is my least favorite way to survey boats. He did give me a nice laugh.... Under the brand of winches he carefully wrote - "Deux Vitesses". A few years later I was trying to locate the winch mfr. You can imagine my surprise when the automatic French to English translater said the winches were called - "two speeds" Never did determine who manufactured them...

Lewmar Winch Schematics

Here is a useful link for Lewmar parts and schematics including obosolete winches. On our 1984 boat, we have 17 Obsolete Lewmars up to #65. Conveniently, I work for a custom machine builder. Copied parts can usually be made from my drawings for beer. Often, I make my own parts. The plastic tang on this #48 was shattered. After-market replacement was $140.00 - but not available. I made the replacement and 2 spares from solid Nylatron. By the third copy I was down to about two hours. The #65 is shown as I re-assembled the cleaned and lubricated parts. I paged through the dis-assembly photos on the desk top to prevent mix-ups. (the subassembly on the left belongs inside the main housing on the right) You can see how clean the parts get in the soak tank as noted in my previous post.

Actually, Arco-Hutton Winches in Sydney Australia can supply most Barient parts.

Re: Winch Maintenance Question...

I ended up creating a blog post on what I had to resort to for getting my old corroded winches off and service them. On this blog post, I also did a step by step video showing how each step of removal, disassembly, servicing, assembly and installation. I hope others find it useful as well.
