Gearmatic model 19 winch
« on: January 23, 2009, 02:26:45 AM »
My drum does not want to freespool the winchline.  I can move the drum up and down with the side cover off.  I think I need to replace the inner bearing that supports the drum behind the bands.  Do I need to just replace the bearing or are there other adjustments I need to make?  The drum actually sits down on the brake drum bands.  If I lift up on the drum then it will freespool.  If anyone has replaced these drum bearings please advise.

Sounds like you may have quite a bit of wear there, so I'd have a really good look at seats, etc. while things were apart.
Robin Hood had it just about right:  as long as a man has family, friends, deer and beer...he needs very little government!

 Sounds like you're going to be tearing it down  :( . I have a manual on it if you need part #s or diagrams.

Replace the inner  and outboard support bearing, it's not that bad a job, use lots of anti-seize when putting together, seal the case with sealer and use a double seal on roto seal.
