Just a quick one Guys and Gals

Can anyone recommend someone in western sydney to do a service on my Warn winch. I have had the car for 18 months now and I have done NO maintenance on the winch and god only knows how long before that it got any attention.

Cheers Stefan

hi Stefan
i service my winch myself. usually takes 2 hours to remove, service and refit. all you need is spanners and allen keys and some grease. i service my winch every time i go through water as the rust quickly builds up. try to get a marine grease as it will not be washed away as quick.

Thanks for that, this is my first winch so still learning. Have no books or anything so I might just remove it have a bit of a look around and suss it out.

Cheers Stefan

Craig,

Thanks man, that's an awesome webpage full of really good stuff. Particularly like the portal axles on his SWB Landy. See the first effort, under guard clearance 4'11" WOW!!!

This is now in my favourites too.

Regards, Trevor.
