Ah, nice, that is a usefull comment. It's nice to know that others with older winches can disassemble them without having to remove them from the ship.
Tonight i'm heading out to mine, so i'll see how it goes.. I'll also post some pics

OK, i just did one winch, and it went well. YAY
It's easier than i thought.

Here's the winch:


After removing the circlip, and topcap:


After removing the drum:


And the inside of the drum:


I couldnt remove the center stem, or the gear axl, but i decided on using a really small but stiff brush, and clean them with diesel.
This went really well.. Then i lubricated them machine oil, and reassembled.

Now it runs really smooth, and light! Great!
After dinner, i'll do the other winch..

It goes back in that order.

Sounds silly, but there are so many bits in the dang things!
Better still lay it in a tub or bucket. The parts come alive and seem to love the water. I used to plug the cockpit drains. Unfortunately the Beneteau has an open transom.
