I have a Maxwell
that I just recently serviced from above deck
. Nothing bad was found even though the clutch
had been sticky. Cleaned everything off and re-greased and put back together.
I happened to access the area below deck
today and noted that the sight glass shows no oil
level. I would obviously like to add some gear oil
but can't seem to locate a place to add oil. The only thing I could see is removing the entire windlass
, turning it vertical and adding oil through the sight glass plug
. This seems like unbelievable poor engineering and I think it is more likely that I am just too stupid to find the place one adds oil. I could really use a hint as to where the oil is added ...
