    Barient Springs On Barlow Winches I found confirmation that Lewmar/Barient springs work on Barlow winches on another forum: "Lewmar springs work with Barlow winches, I know that, but their pawls work less well. I second the advice to go directly to Arco-Hutton and not to experiment with...

    Yes, I'd seen that previously. They are the people who gave me the quote for Barlow springs. I've sent them a message asking if same springs can be used on Barient winches. Have you bought any pawl springs for your Barlow winches?

    Do you also use them on your Barlow winches? West Marine has the same 10 springs for $2 less than Defender http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product2_11151_10001_37091_-1____ProductDisplayErrorView#.Uc7095yDmVY

    Barlow Parts From Australian Yacht Winch Company This company bought entire inventory from Barlow/Barient when they went out of business. I sent them a message to see if I could buy pawl springs for my Barlow 15 winches. The part number is 01-300 and the same springs are used by many other...

    I answered part of my question. Looking at specs for a number of different Barlow winches I see see the springs and pawls for all have the same part number. Spring 01-300 and Pawl 01-400. Still wondering if Barient and Barlow parts interchangeable. West Marine has repair kits for Barient...

    Another question. Have you found that all Barlow winches use the same pawl springs? The same pawls? Do Barient and Barlow winches use the same springs and pawls? I sent a message to the Australian Yacht Winch Company, the company that bought the inventory of Barient and Barlow, to see what...

    Is the socket on the old Barlow and Barrient winches the same size as the winches today?

    2 Barlow 15 winches on mast so looking for one spare handle for them. Thought I had one this morning but lost in last 3 seconds on eBay. Glad to know B-B-L handles are generic

    Sounds like you are all set for winches. At the price of new winches, you can go through a lot of old winches if you buy buy them at such good prices. A question about handles. Have you found that the same handles work on both Barlow and Barient winches. Do the handles have to be for Barlow...
