I have a problem with my vertical windlass
. The main shaft has corroded (I assume) to the clutch
tube that rotates round it and won't come free.
shaft needs to be removed so the machine screws holding the above deck
assembly to the gearbox
can be removed.
The manufacturer has advised that the gearbox
adapter and the main shaft may need to be cut meaning some expensive parts
will need to be ordered.
Any way of getting a brass/bronze shaft tube has corroded to a stainless steel
