got two self tailing main winches


Have figured out how to  take my new,  old, winches apart. They are lewmar 52 wavegrip self tailing. I am in the process of cleaning them re greasing and oil them, adding new pawls and springs.  the gears look good so they should work ok. Also cut and installed plexiglass for engine controls in cockpit.  I have winch parts scattered around the house, hope I can put it all back together again. currently I am waiting for a marine electrician to check my work, don't want to kill myself or burn up the boat.
