I'm trying to remove my progess II windlass
from my deck
to do some repair work
( broken cap screw)
It's an older model.
nut where the winch
handle fits doesn't want to unscrew.
I have it soaking with penetrating oil
I'm at the point where I'm wondering if I'm loosening it the right way ( counter clockwise?)
If I can't remove it, is there a way I can knock out the main shaft from below deck
Has anyone had a simular experience?
Any help would be appeciated.
