Hi all - :)

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a reasonably skilled & priced place that can rebuild the 8k hi-mount that came with my new Patrol? The clutch handle is frozen and I think that the solenoids are in dire need of replacement. I think it needs a complete strip down and re-build - but it's worth it. They are a great winch.

Any ideas anyone?

Cheers
Chris

I've never had one rebuilt but mates have had theirs done by the 'winchdoctor' somewhere out 7 hills way.

Oh! :)

I'll have to track him down! I think I've heard of him mentioned in comp circles - where he not only rebuilds them but adds pressurisation, water cooling and all sorts of lovely mods.......

Cheers Peter - I'll look him up!

I'd stick a post up on outer limits. If you can't find him let me know and I'll get his details from a mate who has used hime several times over the years.
i've got an owners manual for an 8274 here somewhere I can scan if needed.

Sorry - what I mean by this is that the only thing available on the website is a numbered list of constituent parts - not a "manual" in the true sense of the word. Is what you have a proper manual which advises you on how to strip it and then re-assemble it properly ... ie what torques to use, lubricants, etc?

If you ring Ateco(???spelling), the importer, and speak to someone in the service department you may find they are willing to do a private job. They are the guys who know the winch best and get the parts at the best prices too.

I rang them years ago and the guy I spoke to offered this service.

Sorry I can't give you the number but they used to be on the Highway at Tempe.

Good luck
