I did mine from new with advice from Mal. He was certainly very generous with his advise, I did explain to him I was in sydney and was a fitter with acess to machinery?. it would be a lot harder from used because things would cease up.  But it ain't rocket science. Oh and I did get the offset tierods from Mal think they were less than $60 posted.

I know the Runvas are like the holy grail atm and I even put a mate on to the seller here. But I can't see any winch going for long with repeated dunkings and minimal use?

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...

Is it mounted feet-down, or feet-forward? Is the drain hole at the bottom?

That's what I meant, sill mounted (door sill) 1 each side. Want an f1-11 to go with that?  :D ;D

Would packing them head to toe full of greece keep the water out?

Silcone will water proof it , then put a drain and breather in the end casing for the motor.  After I did mine I bought a  warn end casing already taped with a BSP port in it. Next time it's out Iam  Going to hook it up to a small blower motor that runs concurrently with the winch . Maybe with an override switch for after water crossing?

I know their economy is crap but i dont think they'll all fit  ;D.



 I pulled my old M8000 out a few years ago after it failed to winch me out of my parents back yard (another story ) and expected it to be rooted since i hadnt touched it since fitting it 9 years ago.
  When i checked the motor it was totally dry and the gearbox was still greased just as i left it, in my ARB bar the winch is fitted feet up in a cradle between the end of the chassis rails.
 Exposed as it is it has never copped any damage, winch is at least 20-25yo so i expected it was cactus but it works perfectly now.

When Mal did our winch it also cost is over $1100.....that was a bit of a surprise.
I know the grease you need to use is the EPL0 it's the thinnest grease, it's nearly oil, that's what Mal told me to use.

If it was my money again, I would buy a cheaper brand and just replace it every 5 years.......

Quality Bearings?
Are the gaskets just for sealing or do they add to end play?????
If they are just for sealing why not use Loctite flange sealant   :cheers:
