I have those same clutches.  I'll bet that Florida Rigging and Hydraulic (800 
718-1649) might be able to help you.  They are a master Lewmar distributor.  I'm 
betting that you can buy just the handle.  Challenge will be if Lewmar still 
stocks the part.

I could have sworn that the clutches I have are Shaeffers, but when I went back 
to the boat to check, I found that they are Lewmars. No idea of age / model 
numbers but they have 8-10 and 5/16 - 3/8 stamped on them The area of the base 
is 6" x 3" and they are grey. Will try and get back to the boat tomorrow and see 
if I can measure / document the through-bolt pattern.
I am still looking for an aexact replacement of either just the handle, or 
complete double unit, but if I do have to go for replacement of the complete 
double unit, has anyone tried out the Garhauer clutches - they are about 2/3 the 
price of Lewmars and 1/2 that of Spinlock?
