I think I used 30 weight. I have never changed the oil despite putting in a drain plug. I used a 1/4 npt drain plug. Can't remember if I borrowed the tap or bought one. McMaster Carr sells the taps cheap and the drain plug. I'll try to take a picture this weekend.

Tony, I can double check but pretty sure I have an 1/4" NPT tap if you need to borrow it

Thanks, Jeff, I may take you up on that. Picked up a fresh set of square nuts and socket head screws to hold the halves together along with some 30wt. And a new set of circlip pliers. At this point I think all that's left is to source some welding cable.

Use stainless SHCS's. Mine rusted in very short order, they collect water in the top of the head. Unless you have a garage then no worry for you.

It may have been a 1/8 NPT too now that I think about it. Really doesn't matter as long as the plug has a good seal.

Good idea(s), Galen. The winch came with a cover, but I may just put some silicon in/on the bolts to be safe.

Mine should be home Sunday if you want to compare drain hole locations, and I have a tap and die set as well.

I also believe I have an 1/8" NPT tap but will double check. and yes, I will bring Galpin's pile of parts with me on Sunday if you are around...whenever he becomes less of a deadbeat and decides to install this thing somewhere I will help him paint it!

If I can make it out there (if I can, it'll likely be with my son), I'll definatly bring the winch, thanks.

That said, I'm about the last person you need to help you install an overhead beam . . .

That's likely best for everyone involved.

Long but successful night. Winch is assembled, mounted on the arb and the arb is half installed. I remembered as we were dropping it on to the frame rails that you're really supposed to grind off the extraneous chunks of frame to install an arb, so now we know what I'll be doing tomorrow. Also, the steering guard shared space with bumper, look for it in the classifieds soon.

It's a shame that after all the work on the winch it's hidden behind The Steel Curtain of the arb.

Next: grind the chassis into compliance, source welding cable to wire the winch, source synthetic rope, and go find a shopping mall planter to self-recover from.

Everything is mounted, wiring is done save running the cable to the battery, runs perfectly and just need to tension the rope and spool it in all the way. Couldn't be happier both with the finished product and the learning experience.
