Identify my windlass

I have a 1987 marine trader. The windless seems to be original.
There are no identifying numbers or letters on the housing. I have seen the same housing on other MTís but never able to get a brand or name.
Itís going into our 4th year of ownership and I would like to service it before
It needs repair. All is well so far. Any thoughts ? Ty

A picture is worth a thousand words I've been told. In this case it may help immensely to solve your issue.

Yes, I agree with La Bomba. No photo in trying ti ID a windless with no identifying marks is taking this exercise to a whole new level, necessitating a modicum of clairvoyance...I was never good at that...

However, let me just say, if it looks like this...

then it's a fairly old Nilson...
