Lofrans Progress 1 windlass seized.
The clutch on my windlass is seized and I can't undo the central nut. I've bent a winch handle in the attempt and today I took a compressor and impact wrench down to the yard but still couldn't shift it. Any more ideas for getting the thing apart?
I have also tried to split the motor from the head to take it home and work on it on the bench but the shaft is also stuck. Right now it looks as though I'll have to cut the deck to take it out if it breaks down. As it stands I can raise the anchor but can't use the warping drum.
One hull good, two hulls better.
