  1. Yes they did have old stock. You can read it all at Rear Disc Brakes.............the build............... - Series Forum - LR4x4 - The Land Rover Forum Grem
  2. Hi Jamie Normal rotation on both the large hex nut and shaft bolt. I have no idea what the tread is but it should be metric Grem
  3. As far as i know the governor limit is different between disco 200 and defender 200, 4100rpm vs 3900rpm
  4. Update, probably the final one. Solenoid control box Bracket all fabbed up and painted Next up the box as received (its ment to go on low line winches). I opened it up to see the internal gubbins and quality. Its a Chinese thing and i had to change the cable to the motor as they were too short for my application In my view i saw that the crimped wires and terminals seemed weak, so i went out and upgraded the wiring from 25mm2 to 50mm2.......... thought it was simple, but unfortunately twice the wire size did not make the cables really flexible, so i had to be a little cre
  5. Brilliant Nick, if you are ever on the rock let me know. Short update, trimmed the front apron to hug the winch, now it looks finished. Also painted and finished the bracket to mount the control box, pics tomorrow........... Regards Grem
  6. Thanks, i have noticed that after i added back the spotlights the electric fan comes on more often, so they are probably hindering the airflow. Since i do not have long journeys on this little rock, so they will stay like that, the fan will keep up anyway. Next instalment will the the solenoid and related large gauge wiring. I was going to install it in the wing behind the lights, but its a headache to get to if it goes wrong for some reason, so its going in the front next to the winch, in a similar location of the originals. The solenoid kit (allbright clone) i got is mounted in a watert
  7. Hi Everyone Time for a bunch of pics from my refurb and winch install onto my series 3. So i managed to bag a bargain off ebay, and this is how it arrived. So time for a strip down and see what it needed, as its had a hard life on the rear of a recovery truck from what i could find out. It was not in a such a bad shape, worn brushes, and lots of grime and neglect. I started off by ordering new brushes After some prep i had the whole thing painted in Grey, plus some new gaskets and plastic cover from the UK Got the commutat
  8. Ah husky colour (by accident) is now in tones of grey.................
  9. Last update before reassembly cleaned up commutator, and old vs new brushes
  10. Brushes in house..............
  11. Thanks guys, Just ordered a fresh set of brushes (https://www.al-electric.de/), as mine were quite worn, next i will lightly skim the commutator so it has a fresh face. Motor should be like new when done. Just need to deciede what colour to repaint the winch........ original red or black............. G
  12. Right some useful info for those who wish to keep thier Husky winch alive. The original motor is made by ISKRA - 11.216.273 AMJ4761 MAHLE Letrika (Iskra) DC motor A bit of history about Iskra, in 2012, the Slovenian auto electrical company Iskra Avtoelektrika changed its brand name to Letrika. There continuous product development earned the recognition of the profession. Letrika is a member of the MAHLE group since 2014 and use MAHLE Letrika brand name since 2015 and are now branded MAHLE. Specifications Voltage 12V Kilowatt 1.6k
  13. Yes i will, no problem, but will buy locally. G
  14. Hi Western thanks again, in fact i will source the lubricants locally as its not worth having them sent over here. Just sent a mail to first four now we see their reply. G
  15. Another question, will one shot swivel grease work in the spur gearbox? G
  16. Hi western, Thanks for the reply, pity they closed! yes i have been on the first four site, but no brushes listed. I am ordering some gaskets and other bits, will try asking maybe they know. Grem
  17. Hi All I am at the moment refurbing a Husky winch. While its apart i thought it might be a good idea to fit new brushes to the motor. Now i have the parts manual and been trough the parts suppliers and no one seems to list the brushes separately (unlike other makes). Does anyone know if you can find replacements? or have the specs (lenght) of what they should be as new? Motor used to work when tested, not under load, loads and loads of black dust inside (brushes?) no corrosion or water ingress damage. Tips and advise welcome. Regards Grem
  18. Install time, not much to say, see below
  19. Yes trying to keep it the same height, that why i will probably reset the camber. I did them in the past myself, but its a lot of work. This time i have a spare set of leaves which i will reset after i install the winch and see where it sits, and how it rides. Cause if it hits the bumps all the time it might be too soft and i will than probably add a leaf. No paras for me in front, i had them, broke them, and hated them, so its standard springs up front. Grem
  20. Further to my question, how does everyone measure the free camber on the springs? Across the Middle of the spring eye bushes to the spring arch (center bolt)? Grem
  21. No, off the shelve items i was told, they were as old stock. Grem
  22. Understood, will reset my spare set of springs anyway to +1" as i have longer shocks in front. They will then settle down to original height with the weight. Grem
  23. It should work. Well i went the other way and uprated my Stage 1 axle to 24 spline, via maxidrive shafts, plus a 4 pin macnamara center. Grem
