First sailboat purchased which came with a vintage, pre 1990 Manual Lawrence Simpson Anchorman windlass
. Tried to give it a long needed service
but it proved to be harder than I anticipated. I simply cannot get the parts
to separate and I am reluctant to use force since I do not know is there is a locking mechanism or not.
available on the internet
and Iíve gotten nothing from previous threads
I know I could get the base plate of and check the ID but I donít have any sealant
atm so Iím reluctant to do so.
Removing the Fleming
(? - the metal piece extending into the gipsy), turning the clutch
nut CCW and unscrewing the shoulder screw from the center lets me slide the drum, gipsy and gipsy carrier from the baseplate. Here however progress haltered. I cannot separate these parts
Light prying between the gipsy and drum lets the gipsy spin freely. However, continued prying does now seem to make anything else happen.
Again, this is my first boat
so donít e frightened to suggest obvious stuff.
It seems my webpage for picutres doens really work
here so i got the photos on an external imgur upload. Sorry for the inconvenece.
