Re: Lewmar ST 40 winches on an SM
Penetrating oil and brute force now have the spindles turning. I'll keep up that application until they are free.

Yes the central spindle does pull out from the top. It can be stubborn at times but it should come out once you have removed the two or three inserts that sit at the top of the tower where the spindle sinks into.
You may need to use some penetrating oil to free them up a bit more.
