Synthetic Roller Fairlead

Anyone know where I can get one of these?

I've found the picture, but cannot figure out where it came from........perhaps they no longer make them as they are not currently listed on their website.

Any other plastic roller options out there complete with the housing?

hmmm...plastic? I would think that would break/crack under load - cause your rope to fray?

Viking is good stuff...do you use that with Synthetic rope? I am not too sure that I see the need for rollers with Synthetic Rope. Just an option for you are the real nice titanium ones...extremely smooth

Well, that's from Viking... call Thor and ask him if he still has any. He's a great guy and very helpful. I know he doesn't recommend roller fairleads for synthetic line, you should be using a smooth hawse fairlead.

I have a long post over on GNR about this winch, but there seem to be more winch guys here so I am posting this here too.

This is for a Crank Driven winch............I am putting synthetic line back on it, but am looking for a new fairlead because what I have is damaged.

I ordered a new Factor fairlead and was going to fabricate a mounting plate, but when I got it this week in the mail, I realized it was so long I don't see how it will work.

I would like a "weld on" replacement for what I have that is compatible with synthetic line. I found the Viking picture online and thought it might work if the size was similar to what I currently have.

Here are some pictures of me holding up the hawse fairlead for size comparison.

Are the rollers on your fairlead removable? If so, Daystar makes a drop-in roller that is polyurethane. I don't have any firsthand experience people seem to have pretty positive feelings towards them from what I can see. You'll need to cut them down since your fairlead is smaller, but that's a simple task. Alternatively, if you have access to a lathe, you can buy some sticks of Delrin and turn up a set of rollers for yourself.

I'd rather roll with the poly...it's the best place to mount my plate.

My rollers are not removable.........well, not intentionally setup to be removable. I suppose I could figure a way to get them off and back on with the synthetic rollers.

ETA


If I could find a set of roller pins that were made to be removable I could probably change it all out.

Problem with the husky is that is wider than most..if you don't get the right width you can spool on to the edges of the drum..
