Update time..lol..
Things are moving along at a steady pace.. but there are lots to do..
After the radiator was moved.. had to move winch setup etc.. this has been a mammoth task but is almost complete except for electrics and air lines.. anyway pictures says a 1000 words so yea..

thats it at this stage.. only showing this to show what can be done etc on the back.. this is taken from a few guys i know and have had great success with this setup.. basic , fast , cost bugger all

Next is electric winch up front, then air tank on back then electrical sw's etc.. then good for a skid. Looking at hopefully finishing this by end april.. so we'll see :wink:

sorry for a dumb question but...
are you using a tranfer case in between the winch and the original pto output?

if so why? to speed it up? and if so to what ratio?

also dont worm and gear boxes dislike high speed? some thing along the lines of driving the worm through the gearbox end?

be keen to see how it goes :twisted:

oh still got that end plate here as well, just been busy :oops:

Yep. Suzuki case to step up pto speed. 2:1 (basically).
Two trucks down here already do it (you've probably seen both. Leigh's orange double cab lux and Mike's red single cab lux. Both have raced up north). Doesn't seem like a bright idea on paper but seems to work ok in practice.

How does the winch brake work on the PTO? Or is it a worm drive?
