Paul Wightman Posted September 30, 2006 Share Posted September 30, 2006 It's been a while since I let you lot into what is new on Piggy. I have to be honest in the past I found some of the "you don't want to do it like that" or "I know a bloke who does that but better" somewhat off putting so I don't want to get into heavy discussion thanks. In fact if anyone is genuinly interested I'll see you at FSWC and we can chat there! First the winch. Two 12v 6hp XP motors running on 24v water cooled. Second the steering. Hydraulic assist power steering. The winch was tried out on the Argyll and worked fine except the alternator was unable to supply the goods. Saying the winch worked fine is actually a lie, the drum went into self destruct with the ends turning into saucers and the drun bending. Plans are for a larger alternator (80A 24v) which I have but not yet fitted. Steering has been rigerously tested by driving to the MOT station (1 1/2 miles) and back. MOT passed and steering is SO positive it's going to take a little getting used to! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
