I just unboxed a sealed set. There is only one string and only one hook in this set, and they are both in part number bb72c01.

Part No: bb72c01  Name: String Reel Winch 4 x 4 x 2 with Sloped Top, Metal Handle, Black Drum and Crane Arm Complete with String and Crane Hook Right
* 
bb72c01 (Inv) String Reel Winch 4 x 4 x 2 with Sloped Top, Metal Handle, Black Drum and Crane Arm Complete with String and Crane Hook Right
Parts: String Reel / Winch
Part number bb72c01 consists of three parts: the winch with arm, the hook and
the string. The string is a x77a string (thin) with a length of 35cm, which would
make it part x77ac35, however this part doesn't exist (yet). I think it would
be a fair assumption that all parts bb72c01 came with a 35cm string (but I could
be wrong).

Before I can proceed with these requests, I need some more information if you
do not mind.

Did the three parts that make up
 
Part No: bb72c01  Name: String Reel Winch 4 x 4 x 2 with Sloped Top, Metal Handle, Black Drum and Crane Arm Complete with String and Crane Hook Right
* 
bb72c01 (Inv) String Reel Winch 4 x 4 x 2 with Sloped Top, Metal Handle, Black Drum and Crane Arm Complete with String and Crane Hook Right
Parts: String Reel / Winch
come separately in the sealed set, or were they all preassembled? The instructions
are inconclusive about this.

It's hard to come by data for sealed sets from this period of time, so we
have a good learning opportunity here.

Thanks,
Randy

I found bb72c01 exactly as it is in the picture. The string is tied to the winch,
and the hook is tied to the other end of the string. The string is also neatly
rolled up on the winch.
Unrolling the winch will extend the string. I can create about 32.5cm between
the hook and the winch roll. Add a little bit for knots and spanning the winch
roll and my conclusion is that the string is 35cm long.

Thank you for the information. Your requests have been accepted.

For now, I am not going to change the inventory of the preassembled part to include
a certain length of string, since we do not know if the length was always ~35cm
for this part. This thread will be saved indefinitely, though, so we can come
back to this information if we need it later.

One further question. Does your bb72c01 have a "right" crane hook on it like
the inventory shows, or does it have a "left" crane hook?

Cheers,
Randy

That is opposite what the inventory shows.

Your part has a left crane hook, so it is a different assembly that is not in
the BrickLink catalog. Please submit this part as bb72c02 with the name "String
Reel Winch 4 x 4 x 2 with Sloped Top, Metal Handle, Black Drum and Crane Arm
Complete with String and Crane Hook Left". After it is added to the catalog,
please submit an Inventory Change Request to add it as an alternate to this set.

Thanks,
Randy
