Help ID this 12v windlass brand and model

On our 50 footer built in 1982 in Taiwan. The gypsy is stamped “BB75”, no other markings.

Looked at Legacy windlass photos from various
Mfrs Ideal, Lewmar, Simpson, and none seem to match.

“BB75" refers to the gypsy/chain size:

John at SLSpares is THE go to guy for any old SL windlass. He worked for SL and when they decided to retire all the old stuff he bought the rights and all the remaining spare parts.

I've spoken with him a few times and purchase a few parts from him. Good guy to deal with.
