    I have a 55 ft crank up tower. I went to lower it and of course, started cranking it up. I paused a a few, then went to reverse it and the lock nut broke lose. I am sure I need to replace that nut, but is that all? Thanks in advance for replies.

    I was given a TX455 with a hand crank. That OEM "boat trailer winch" that came on it was a piece of crap. It now has a electric winch with limit switches.

    My TX-455 had a Fulton winch with a brake.

    Maybe you had an older model (or, maybe even a "newer" model).

    My winch is fine, it just takes lots of cranking so I almost never crank it down.:p

    Helps to know for sure just what make and model the winch is.
    You can get parts breakdown/lists for the Fulton winches which should help.
