Windlass motor replacement??

Postby Pipercubfan » Tue Jul 24, 2018 9:09 pm

I check with Simpson/Lawrence for my windlass motor part no 60540K 12 . Well the motor is no longer available. Anyone have one for sale? I have not taken it apart yet it is still on the boat but the shaft is frozen and will not turn. I will try to get the motor apart and see if I can repair it or have it repaired locally. I just had a new mounting board made to support the windlass and had it all installed when I tried it and no soap. So I took the case apart and removed the windlass from my new board and will take the wires off the motor tomorrow and bring the motor home to see if I can get it apart and try to repair it. In the mean time anyone have any suggestions as to who may have this motor? I was hoping to get the boat in this week but I will have to make some modifications to be able to use the anchor until the motor issue is resolved or replaced. Thanks.
