Husky Winch parts repair

I picked up the husky winch and finally got around to putting power to it and it clicks when you try to spool it in or out but thats it? does anyone know if there are parts available - how to diagnose what might not be working or do I scrap it and buy a new one?

thanks

If you scrap it then I call dibs on taking it off your hands....

Its probably something simple like a solenoid or something though....

The husky is a pretty simple winch... Take it apart and check it out. Might need grease and oil or worst case, a motor. I am pretty sure that a starter/alternator place could rewind it pretty cheap.

Before you tear into the winch, make sure that the solenoid is operational. Make sure that it's putting out +12V on the output to the winch.

Does it free-spool okay when you release the clutch?

Summit Racing carries a lot of Superwinch parts. You can get anything from Superwinch directly.

i probed the solenoids and it does not look like there is 12 v coming out of them - might be the first thing to replace - yes it free spools fine

looking at the 8500 wiring diagram I have it shows the negative attaching under the motor but mine does not look to have that spot to attach it?

am i missing the thin black wire from the motor to the solenoids?

On my winch the F1, F2, and A contacts on the motor are studs that protrude. The negative contact under the motor is a bolt that screws into a hole. Perhaps you are missing the bolt. If so, it would be easy to miss that there's a hole there.

The smaller black wire that you say may be missing may also be grounded elsewhere.

Do you have the old style solenoid or the new style?

as far as new or old solenoid - I would guess old type based on the age of the winch - and I was holding the winch up and my buddy was looking under it so I will have to confirm that there was or is a spot to screw the small black wire into -

will have to give it all another look tomorrow

thanks for all the help so far
