Duane,
I have helped other owners with this
issue. Most have been exactly as you have
described.
My
recommendation is that you can probably leave it as is, but
be sure you grease it and use a snubber.
I agree on not changing the oil.
There is really no reason to change the oil
because:If there is any slivers of metal
or any other heavy substances in the oil you probably will
not retrieve them by siphoning, and these pieces will
probably do no harm as they will sink to the bottom. There
is no oil pump...just splash-oiling.The windlass is
not an internal combustion engine that will change the oil
by heat.
However, make
sure that there is sufficient oil by using a small stiff
wire through the fill hole to check the oil level. If you
overfill it, you will likely get some minor seepage at the
axle seals. I find it impossible to use the sight glass to
determine the level, but use the wire to ensure that the
level is at the sight glass.

FYI.  I inquired to Amel Marin about
changing Lofrans oil.  They recommended against it.
 They did recommend greasing cone but advised against
oil change saying it wasn't necessary.  I Got this
advise from their head maintenance man in May this year.

Alexandre,
There was a discussion on oil pumps
in the past few months, and one commentor noted a small
diameter hose was good for the Lofrans.
I would definitely not unbolt that
beast if it wasn't necessary.  Lots of wiring and it
may be that there is an embedded plate with the bolt
corroded fast.
Does
anyone know if the mounting bolts can be just turned out
(i.e. is there an embedded plate below the winch for the
mounting bolts)??
