Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Lofrans Winch Mounting


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Duane,

I feel now terrible to have inspired you to service the windlass…

Here are pictures of used spare parts that came with the boat.
You can see the space for the key bent as well as inner and outer gipsy bent.

http://nikimat.com/lofrans_tigres_windlass_used_parts.html

I throw these away but purchase a spare of each (which is probably not necessary).

One of my next project is to change the oil of the windlass (and I understood it needs to be unbolted), so if you can take pictures..

Good luck…

Sincerely, Alexandre

I've been trying to remove the
inner clutch cone without success.  The key is binding in
the clutch cone key-slot.  (picture the clutch cone slot at
11:00, the drive shaft slot at noon, and the key tipped to
stay in both slots).  
I tried using a bearing
splitter, which is the only puller that can be gotten
between the clutch cone and the aluminum casing, and the
puller then pushes against the drive shaft.  It bent the
edge of the clutch cone but did not move one
bit.
I decided to remove the
winch and send it to Lofrans for repair.  Looking in the
chain locker, directly below the windlass, I don't see
any nuts for the four mounting bolts.
 
Are the nut embedded in the
deck?  I started to turn one of the bolts and didn't
get a good feeling about it.
Duane
