Warn winch rebuild
« on: July 11, 2015, 12:31:35 AM »
going to mates place, having a beer, then deciding to service me winch... much intercoursing around, remove bullbar and winch and UHF Aerial, and more...

finally get winch in shed, find that the freespool lever wont move... not a good look...
remove the other end from the motor, look inside,  it looked like the cup and substance from 1 girl 1 cup...

decide its a job for Mal Leslie :(  Call GG to find out rough price he paid for his.. found out.. started crying...
refitted bar, ariel, spotties, no winch and drove home with tail between legs....

Reckon I need to look up the meaning of intercoursing...I'm hoping it means something different to my thinking  ???  ;D

Getting steep at those prices, although a new Warn will set you back a heap more. I was lucky as I sent him my winch brand new out of the box so he just improved it. Maybe he is getting ready for retirement  ;D

I had that thought too
but as a mate said he gets comp blokes spending $15,000+ on upgrading their own winch so to him maybe he thinks its cheap. scottmefuqt

I thought there maybe a youtube on how to do it, but cant find Shit on how to waterproof them properly. not even a decent website. :(
In the defence, the XD9000 design is decades old, so waterproofing probably wasn't high on the list back then.

Cheapest XP I can find new in US was around 1700au + million shipping.

I've been trying to understand what parts Mal uses, and I think he must use the 2 end parts the drum goes in, and also the cross braces...  ???

http://winchserviceparts.com/ looking here (USA of course), parts aren't that bad...

might drop in and see Adam at Ironman again...  talk to him about his winches and how waterproof his are.

You're paying for parts, labour and many many years of knowledge.

Warns are designed to be mounted feet-down, but most are mounted feet-forward. When I spoke with ML, he said that most of what he does is to address the non-drainage issue when they're mounted feet-forward. As mine's mounted feet-down (TJM bar with cradle), he said there wasn't a lot to be gained by having him work on it. How is yours mounted Bruce?

I bought his cross braces separately.

No doubt, which is one reason I called him.. but the parts were only 300.. lots of labour in 1100.00....

Mines in a TJM bar too :) But interesting to see, the drain hole is only at one end of the winch (motor or gearbox cant remember) which I find strange...


Actually googling I see warn now make a winch totally designed to run underwater.... wonder how many billions they would cost.

Geoff.. what are the crossbraces??? surely they aren't just the bars "bracing bars" ???

Interesting, googling and seeing some of the threads on what grease to use....
http://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/waterproofing-a-winch.371911/

Some chat on Caterpillar Dozer grease here that 'traps' the water... sounds interesting.

Bruce, the std braces are very light, and too close to the winch body. ML's cross-braces are heavier, and spaced out from the winch body. They give more room for the rope to bunch up when winching. The housings can break if the rope bunches up against the braces. I don't remember pricing, but they weren't big money. Easy to make.

These are what he was saying was for waterproofing... ??? I know the birdsnesting issue with the std bars, but trying to figure out how it could waterproof it... maybe I mistook what he said... theres plenty of people making the cross braces too these days..

Looking at exploded views of the XP, there certainly seems more seals than the stocky XD

So how does the "you get what you pay for" theory work here?? Twice the price of a Runva and it's still Shite? Why is the winch dead? Maintenance issue, broken parts, user error?   ;D

Cause I'm a lazy **** - simple as that... Probably 7-10 winches on 4b's out there that haven't had their winch touched would be the same

All but 2-3 winches on the market would have been the same. But if you had the spare to get it waterproofed or buy the waterproofed unit= then it would piss on a Runva which he suggested couldn't be waterproofed....
