|You can still get parts for the Sprint1500, but you have to look hard. I replaced all the bearings, some of the gears, the motor, the seals, and maybe other stuff in mine about 3 years ago. The windlass had got seawater inside and was corroded and seized. Some parts I sandblasted. I can't tell you where I got the parts because I am not at home (sailing, currently in Hilo, returning home in the fall). If you open it, have new seal kit on hand (I carry one just in case). BTW - my cost was over half of a new windlass, but a new windlass requires modifying the boat so I figure I came out ahead.
