Superwinch X-10 went "pop"...repair options

Pulling out a sign post with snatch block line doubled when it failed. Surprised that it did not have an overload...worked nicely at Wheeler Lake last weekend (helped a jeep & a Montero trying to make 3rd obstacle)
-learned the limit, however, my D-90 was on level ground, no scotch blocks, idling and did not slide.
-clutch/handle will not engage,
-does run
-where to start?
-replacement parts source
Thanks as I have never serviced a winch before...

Paul

Step one is to take it apart and figure out how all the broken bits fit back together properly. Until you know what is damaged you won't know what replacement items you need to order.

Yup, and then you can call superwinch directly for parts, but I am sure there are lots of other distributors.

Winch repair is easy. Comes apart quickly and usually painfully obvious what is wrong.

They would not cause the clutch lever not to engage.

The lever on my old E 12,000 and my old superwinch 9000 used to jam all the time . you would have to occasionally try and power in and power out a touch to realign the gears to move the handle. The only thing I ever fried on them was the solenoids

I guess it is worth a shot. You can test the winch by running wires direct to the motor to see if it spins.

repaired...

X10 is mounted into a SG bumper; apparently, I had put enough torque on the winch that it distorted enough to pop the clutch lever pin out of the gear end...no damage. While it was apart, I serviced, greased, etc and remounted making sure all studs were properly seated. I noticed one stud to bumper was stripped and required a heli-coil. Realy easy to service but a pain in the ass to R & R as I had to take my bumper off...heavy for 2 people.
