    Default South Coast #5 Winch

    I have these for sheet winches. They're geared about 3-1, and top cranked on a square lug. They also have an oil hole on top. Generic winch maintenance calls for oil on the pawls and springs, grease on the gears. I think I remember reading that some just use oil. Does anyone have these winches? Or instructions for them?
    Thanks.

    I don't recall the brand but Goblin had winches like that. They'd not been maintained for years when I bought her so I stripped and greased them. The grease was a mistake as it got around and clogged the pawls' return. So cleaned again and this time just Mystery Oil. A few drops a year seemed all they wanted.

    Thanks Ian!
    I did some poking around on the net and used motorcycle chain oil. It helped. I think I have Mystery oil too.
