Superwinch X9 drum rusty

I remove my winch line yesterday and noticed that the drum for the winch is very rusty. The rope retainer screw had rusted shut so I had to cut the rope. What's stuff should I use if WD-40 doesn't work?

Also, Has anyone removed and repainted the drum before? Is it a DIY thing or do I have to send it out to someone?

Use Liquid Wrench penetrating oil to get the screw out. You may have to soak it several times a day for a week.

Take the drum off and take it to get it sandblasted and then have it powder coated. If you're cheap, primer it and rattle-can it once it's blasted.

Thanks Chris.

Liquid Wrench it is.

I'm more of a get-it-properly-done kind of person.

I also noticed there a aluminum drums. Does anyone have experience with those?

Has anyone on this board disassembled a Superwinch X9 before? Judging by the exploded diagram there is about 500 moving parts to be disassembled before getting to the drum. It's pretty much the last part to come off. I'm thinking I should probably send it in somewhere but is reluctant to do so. I have tried to contact Superwinch several times but haven't heard back.

Just leave the winch on, wire brush the drum and use something like POR-15 and be done with it.

I think you are right Jonathan. That's the way to go.

What's the deal with prepping for POR-15?

I bought it once but returned it because I didn't want to deal with the complicated preparation.

It's been a while, but just need to wire brush it and use their Metal Ready stuff for proper adhesion. I think you'll be okay going right over the rust as long as there are no contaniments. For such an inexpensive winch (I have one too) no need to waste the effort or expense on taking it apart and powdercoating.
