    The shaft supports you're using are not designed for a thrust load. In fact I don't think their surfaces supporting your thrust bearing are even truly perpendicular to the shaft. Plus they are...

    Three questions: (1) As Hudson pointed out, one would expect to see the clutch on the high-speed, low-torque input shaft. Why isn't it there?

    From what I see there you have an input shaft in the upper left driven by a flexible coupling. The driver gear on the input shaft engages with the driven gear on the output shaft. The driven gear...

    Upon encountering the water the air forms bubbles and rises to the top surface of the water. How is the air "pushing" the water anywhere? Unless there's enough airflow to overwhelm the water with...

    If your winch is driven by a worm gear reducer it might be self-locking, which means it won't move either direction unless powered by the motor. Do you wish the load to "free-fall", or can it just...

    The type of bearing you're using is not intended for this type of application. It is intended for mainly radial loads with lesser thrust loads. In this case the thrust loads are the primary forces....
