I just took apart my Lofrans
and cleaned and regreased it. Which solved
the stiffness issue when trying to haul in the anchor
. Now that i have got it back together it is locked up solid and will not turn at. I suspect i have got the dog clutches the wrong way around but one of them slides onto the shaft and over the key easily but the other one does not. They key slides through the clutch
easily when off the shaft.
I understand that they have different directions of the teeth on both of the clutches but should both of them slide up and down on the keys easily and is there a way to tell which clutch
goes on the shaft first. I take it the clutch faces should be 45 degrees to each other rather than the 90 degrees on the other side of the clutch teeth.
Before i take the file and sandpaper to the one clutch i just want to make sure the y are not different sizes, i did take a mic to them and they appeared the same.
