Noah what was the outcome? Did you replace or soak in oil and did it last?

Try this source if you are looking to replace the self tailing jaws. Not cheap but cheaper than a new winch. http://www.winchspares.com

Glenn- I never heard back from Ken’s guy after I sent him the old caps. However, my winches work well. I “service” the guts once every couple of years and occasionally use 303 Protectant on the faded plastic exterior bits. I also keep them covered with sunbrella covers.

I worked with the Lewmar people in Guilford, CT when I needed the vintage collets.  They were pretty helpful in finding some for me in stock at a place in Florida.
