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
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...
Are you familiar with this company for cheap locking handles
I found the link on a cruisers forum. Post by somebody who has 2 he uses on his Barlow 16 winches
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...
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...
Mine are nothing like the ones in the photo Mine are more like the Merriman winches I have seen photos of. The winch handle goes on the square post on top of the winch. I took some photos today. I'll process them and post them so you can see.
I took a close look at the sheet winches. They are South Coast 5. I missed that before. South Coast hard to see but it is etched into top of the winches. So i need to find someone familiar with them.
The halyard winches are Barlow 15. I'd appreciate if you sent me the Barlow pdf...
James, does this sound familiar.
The winches I'm asking about have 2 large slotted screws that I think must be removed to service. There is also a small slotted screw that appears to be for an oil hole. The hole is about right for the tip of the tube on a can of 3 in 1 oil.
James, thanks. I will be going to the boat at end of week and will take some photos. Perhaps looking at them will enable you to see if they look like either of yours. If there iw a match, I would very much like to have the pdf file.
