jameslwt Posted August 21, 2007 Share Posted August 21, 2007 Hi Took the shaft off my H14 Superwinch which is on my 300 tdi 110 last night as 1 x of the uj's needs doing etc, and when I got in it to drive to work this morning I was amazed at how much quieter the truck was in general, particularly at start up. No rattling noises! So I was wondering if other people's winch/driveshaft setupt do the same? Mine is the one where the front bracket bolts onto the sump bolts, ie the engine, as opposed to other some models where it bolts to the front crossmember, so being attached to the sump, I would expect it to vibrate a bit (it is part of the engine after all!). Do other peoples have any sort of isolation - rubber etc between the brackets and vehicle? 1 bracket on bottom of gearbox and the one I have already mentioned. I didn't get any with mine when I bought it off eblag. I had to make the front bracket as there wasn't one when I got it all - not sure how critical the design had to be - I took rough measurements off another 300tdi and photos from Superwinch etc. The winch works just fine as it is but the (relative) peace and quiet was a joy to behold!
