[Music] welcome to this week's tech tip this week we're going to be servicing witches these are Handerson stainless steel winches and they're really easy to service should be done at least every two years but in heavy sailing every year you don't need many tools a couple of allen keys and some grease I'm using white lithium grease because that's all I can get in this part of the world
00:39
anderson recommend using only their grease but I think the lithium grease is okay let's do it okay there's only three screws on the top here needs to be undone and they might be a little tight so let them soak for a few minutes soft
01:19
water and grease mixed together [Music] now we've got one two three four seven faults here to take the top spindle off [Music] now obviously take some photos before
02:15
you take it apart so you know how it goes back together maybe you need a thin blade to get under the head of this axle and lift it up just slides out remember the small one goes on the bottom in this case you can see there's washers on the top but not the bottom so in in this
02:47
case there's a washer on the top but not on the bottom so if you've taken a photo of that you can put it back together the right way inside this one is pause for one of the years myeloma to make sure we put that back together correctly now it has to be washed okay
03:32
now we get some diesel or some solvent degreaser and we do a lot of washing let's do that so make sure you set yourself up nice nice workspace for each component in place so that when you take it apart you can put it back together the same way got a cockpit drain here make sure you flood that up in case you drop a drop something down it let's get
04:03
washing I'll toothbrush and some diesel just got to wash all the sand and the old crystalline grease out of the bearings and the gears [Music] again remember the sequence got plastic bushes on top and bottom and as a stainless washer underneath the top there's also stainless washer in between
04:53
this one let's remember that [Music] have a close inspection see if there's any wear or damage and to make sure you've removed all the grease and the salt looks good to me [Music] these poles and the springs that hold
05:34
them are what's stopping your winch from turning backwards and releasing the rope that it's holding so these Springs they recommend replace every two years I don't have any new ones on me but next time [Music] now let's reassemble [Music]
06:26
[Music] so wasteful we don't put grease on the poles because the grease could clog up that gap although we do grease the inside of this one so don't know if there's that much difference but we do want to oil the pool [Music]
07:21
one done [Music] you want to change your degreaser every now and again get some fresh diesel well the brass filings it's all aware from in the gears to metal
07:58
[Music] have a good look around for hidden bearings like inside this one there's a bearing here is a retaining ring you can take it out to clean this bearing
08:49
properly or I think I'm happy to leave it in because it's a pain in the ass to get this out give these balls a good rub make sure you get into in between the bowl Oh bear I like to touch my bone mm-hmm make sure you get in there nice and rub those balls nice and hard I mean scrub [Music]
09:49
everything is clean inside the anderson drums give it a good fresh water rinse this hasn't had a good wash since it's been in service just gotta clean knees teeth and down in here the the very base is a greasy color where the bowls realm
10:31
so give that a good wipe out okay cleaning is done now to grease everything and reassemble I've already greased this run inside so it can go back and the Anderson it's the big hole for the big gear check out the shaft [Music] [Music] shaft in this one I will give it a grief
11:30
bottom colonies [Music] [Music] [Music]
12:40
[Applause] [Music] remember when you put yourself Taylor up it should be right angles to the road so my rope comes this way all you have to do is position the whole there's a lot of options there looks good to me put a
13:15
little bit of lanolin in the screw hole maybe next time it won't be so hard to come out [Music] jump complete remember knowledge
13:46
[Music] [Music] you
