Winch casting repair


Recommended Posts

I have a Superwinch with a cast alloy housing which has cracked in the usual place where the retaining bars are fitted.

Does anyone know a way to repair these? Can they be repelled and then drilled out?

Failing that are those bars really needed if I’m running a dyneema rope through a fair lead and could I just remove the bars and tidy up the broken corners with a grinder?

doubtful, it was a very long time ago...


it was just a bit of flat plate with a motor sized hole cut in it, holes for all the mounts drilled, cut it half to get it on the motor and welded together then a flat plate welded to it across the bottom. then another piece of flat drilled for the other end of the winch so it sits level.
