Hybrid_From_Hell Posted August 13, 2006 Share Posted August 13, 2006 Right, Have taken much of the exellent advice re the new 2nd rear winch mount From this prev post : http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=6950 .............Am here I am as at end of today ..................... Much is tack welded (the gussets etc) but the main sides are seam welded up tho Before I weld everything up. 1 Does it look sort of right strength wise ??, rememebr the winch pulls here from the TOP of the winch roller and it PTO Powered, the last unit did aself destruct (er ok, with my help) ! 2 The top part will have a section welded into it picking up the 2 top threaded holes from left to right prob 40 mm deep. 3 The winch is bolted to this "Thing" with 4 bolts through the front face, 2 from the 40 plate at the base of the winch with the 3 gussets off it, and will have 2 more bolt holes on the top face plate when made and welded. 4. Yes ........some of it needs to be cleaned up yet ! .......... 5. I am also thinking of drilling some drain holes (say 40mm) acroos the bottom plate between the gussets for drainage, and a few back further where the gussets end ?...shouldn't make any differentce should it ? 6 The side plates are bolted from the very bottom (bottom of the chassis) up to the very top and end (top of the chassis) with a selection betweemN (holes to be drilled chassis will be "tubed" Any futher idea mods suggestion fire away. Oh and before anyone says "Kin hell how much does that weigh - I can easily lift the unit (witrhout winch) with one hand, with winch erm, yeah ok gets a tad heavier but still liftable ........................................ Go on then - let rip And No, I don't wnat this to bend................ And for thiose Sma*t A*ses who wonder why 2 earth leads 1. Welder 1 Plasma Views please ?
