Re: pto driven hydraulic winch

yea magic thanks for your help. that's the kinda thing i want.. shes a bit of a heavy cow, but I think the added weight of a hydro winch be more beneficial than not having it. also have a pto gear already one of our local suppliers had them listed as spare parts .

Re: pto driven hydraulic winch

yes there is a collar or spacer that joins the out put from auto to input of transfer that by memory is about 60-70mm long. this is where I was planning to fit the drive gear. magic, I'll add a 3-1 box to my list of items to collect. I was thinking that would be the case to allow the drive winch com...

pto driven hydraulic winch

i have a silly idea to want to mount a midmount hydraulic winch to me surf(the term surf is quite vague in this instance...) for a couple of reasons- bigger drum, more pull, maybe speed not essential tho. now i dont currently have the option of a pto drive but have a plan to utilise some cruiser bit...

Re: 1990 surf

Trans is easy to wire into manual shift, 2 relays and a couple diodes.just using the inihator switch as your control?
I also added a transgo shift kit to the valve body, to make gear shifts a bit more positive under power. ( granted im running more power than the average kzn130 tho)

Re: Dual Power

Would suggest against tapping off the 12v battery in the 24v system. You will end up with one flat battery.
Either stand alone 12v alt,
Or 12v house battery(s?) And a 24v -12v charger to charge the house battery. A dc-dc charger or similar

Re: My 185 shiny

Looking on the website, that gauge measures your air/fuel ratio not your exhaust temps.......can this be done on a diesel? I often hear exhaust temps are a good indicator for a diesel. EDIT: I see you have 2 gauges and I got confused over the dual gauge functions of the first one - ignore me :oops:...
