hi again: I was correct that I have a winch like that but mis-remembered how I reassemble it after cleaning
and lubrication. Here are some photos that I took the last time I took it apart. I service
the winches about every 2 years and in between I tend to forget how each one works and this particular winch has the two "surprise" pawls at the bottom which on at least one occasion fell out of the drum when I removed it from the base. I usually have a towel underneath the winch so nothing bounced overboard
Sorry for sending along incorrect instructions previously. Basically, I do what you did - install the bottom pawls and then wiggle/jiggle things while poking at one the pawls with a thin screwdriver to help it find its place. Sometimes its possible to do it with both.
I then insert the top two pawls once the drum is back in place. We have had this boat for just about 20 years and this particular winch is my least favourite to service for obvious reasons.
The other winch on the mast
, a 2 speed self-tailing Lewmar
with alloy drum has two small coil springs underneath the bit that holds the drum on. These springs, no matter how carefully I removed the cover plate, always surprise me with their antics. My second least favourite winch. But it is the main halyard
winch and therefore quite important.
