Lube The Shaft Pawl Slots

The winch pawls should not be greased, just oiled with a light weight oil. Greasing the pawls can cause them to stick. If the pawls stick it could create a very dngerous situation with a loaded winch.
I simply apply some oil to the machined slots with a Q-Tip.

other sizes: small medium large
