I am continuing to add new winch diagrams as I come across them. Since Enkes has put their business on hold shortly after I wrote this article see below for more information , the links to their website below no longer work. I had never heard of ENKES winches, and I even considered replacing them outright with a new pair from one of the more familiar brands.
More on this in a bit. First of all, the winches that need maintenance. These are not, I think, the ones that originally came with the Caprice, but must have been added later, I would say perhaps in the late 70's, or early 80's.
While identical in external size and appearance, the two winches do not have the same markings, which are as follows: Both are two-speed, and rotate clockwise ENKES winches are available in both clockwise and counter-clockwise rotations. I took some measurements of them, confirming that externally, they are identical. This seems to confirm what one of the winches has written on top ENKES 22 ; I assume the other one was misplaced during maintenance from another winch during the years.
You can therefore imagine my surprise when removing the cover, that the inside does not resemble the AR at all. This is what they look like before and during breakdown: And the parts that fit on the shaft, laid out: The ENKES website presents free exploded images of each of the winches, and so I was able to see that my winches, despite external appearances, do not correspond to the current AR model.
I therefore looked at the exploded images of other models and found a match: It looks like over the years, the ENKES company improved on the 22 model that I have, to create their current AR model, which can now be converted into a self-tailing winch. They then took the design of the former 22 model and reduced it in size to become the current AR model. In so doing they also removed the two two teflon rings that separated the bearing rings on the shaft and the base itself from the lower ring.
This allowed them to reduce the height of the winch. So as a conclusion: I have the power and size of the AR winches, but without the possibility of converting them to self-tailing winches. With regards to maintenance, it is as though I have a set of AR winches, with the addition of 2 teflon rings. I can therefore use their corresponding maintenance kit.
Going to their website now brings up the following:
