    Question LVJ winch maintenance

    I can't seem to pick my LVJ 26S winch apart. Does anybody have an experience with these winches?

    no experience with the boutique brand, but the design can't be that far off from the standard ?
    usually the first step is to unscrew the center cap that holds down the feeder arm.

    maybe looking at this will be helpful: ??

    Thanks! Yes, they all seem to be pretty close in design. But the LVJ differs slightly, though. I've already used a hammer where I apparantly should not, and the bronze pin got slightly disfigured. I need help.

    Hoi Bika, LVJ is a Dutch company, you can contact them directly via their website www.lvjwinches.com, just choose the English language in the lefthand upper corner and use the contact mail.
    I'm sure the owner will help you, I once bought a couple of winches from him and he's nice guy. By the way maintenance on those winches (the smallest non self tailing) was easy.
    Perhaps one or more picture(s) will help as well.
    Good luck.
