Emergency Windlass handle

I didn't know what this was until I rebuilt my V1000 windlass. Unscrew the top clutch handles to expose the three holes that mate with the handle,

I have one all wrapped in plastic. Had I known, I would not had to haul 125ft of chain by hand

Parts are not a real problem. The problem lies with services in the majority of the marinas throughout the US waters

I have a similar winch and the handle for manual operation looks very different to that posted. To lift the chain manually (Ö..and I only suspect this method as my winch is similar and the same brand but a different model). Engage the external stop pawl into the anti reverse wheel (in your pic) to prevent more chain paying out. Fully release the clutch to disengage the gearbox and motor. Insert the manual leaver into the lower slots in the lift wheel. The manual lever is a rectangular section with a bobbin attached near one end. It slots into the matching rectangular spaces and the bobbin acts as a fulcrum in a slot in the base. Let me know if you would like pics and I will snap a few latter in the week.

Maxwell V1000

Does all the maintenance get done from the disassembled top side?
Thank you all for the info. I have been having problems with water intrusion to my drive motor. Canít seem to figure out how to get the motor off the gearbox. I would like to rebuild/refresh entirely.
My windlass is on an 89 Jefferson Marquessa.

Thanks,
Joe

You need to disassemble from the upper side and open the gearbox to remove the motor. The armature is the critical part. It is built specifically for this winch with an extended shaft into the gearbox and secured with a drift/roll pin.
As others have said Nilsson Winches in NZ still stocks parts for these units. jamesnilsson.com

Mitchell Nilsson is most helpful.

Thank you very much for the technical and support information. I look forward to rebuilding this windlass. It is a very nice piece.

I too, would like to know what it looks like. Mine doesn't have a stripper either. Guess I'll have to order it from Nilsson. The chain overwinds the wildcat a couple of times each time I bring up the anchor.

Give Nilsson and Maxwell a call. They split into 2 different companies. I believe Nilsson is out of New Zealand now. I worked with Maxwell through Defender.

I have struck out. Email to Nilsson and phone call to Maxwell. Both indicate that because my windlass is old (1988), chain wheel isn't something they carry. My windlass works fine. It's the chain wheel that is the problem.

I did find out the windlass is a VWC700 and I need a 105 wheel.

Anyone know if chain wheels are interchangeable between windlass brands as long as the shaft diameter is the same? I just hate to tear out a working windlass because I can't find an appropriate chain wheel.

Itís certainly possible, but there could be small differences. I would definitely be looking at that option. Even if you can find one close enough and have a machine shop alter it to fit it would be worth it.
I would make a sketch of it so you have all the dimensions and start looking.

You may find that total replacement of the windlass maybe necessary.

I did my homework, research, phone calls and emails. I could not locate a 'new' gypsy for my windlass. I knew exactly the model number I did need so my inquiries could remain brief or at least to work off the info my contacts provided.

Anyhow, last ditch effort; I'll check ebay. Found one. Installed it today and works like a champ. It's in better shape than my old 1/4 gypsy an d it fits my new chain. I will start a 'brand new windlass' fund but for now, onto my next project.

Thank you all!

I have this same windlass and I am trying to find a chain and rope rode that will work. There is a distinct 33 cast into the bottom wheel of my gypsy. Can anyone help determine the proper chain and rope size?

If you email Nilsson they should be able to tell you. The chart is not in the owners manual but I think they would have a record copy.


Alternate is to either remove it and take it with you to try chains or bring a 1' piece of chain to check.
Part replacement instructions used to request a 1' section of chain to verify proper selection.
