{Stus-List} Winch Maintenance

If all the bolts have been removed between the upper and lower housings [the
Barient 24's have 3 bolts and 28's have 4 bolts - looks like the 26 has 7
screws !?], and the upper still will not separate, after removing the roller
bearings, try a couple taps with a rubber mallet, or use a block of wood and
a hammer.  Having a box around the winch as suggested will help catch any
parts that may become loose as the housings separate - though no guarantee.


First time I did my winches it required quite a bit of effort just to remove
the drum, and the housings were not much easier.  They were completely
encrusted in salt and old grease.

Hi Russ,

The drum came off fine.

I was unable to separate the upper gear housing from the lower gear housing
(parts #2 and #1 in the exploded view).
