  2. First thing is does the winch turn? If it doesn't the aluminum drum on the inside will have a stainless steel sleeve, then roller bearings and another stainless steel sleeve. The dissimilar metals of Ali and SS cause corrosion swelling the outside sleeve to seize the rollers. If it is seized put the winch in a small bucket of diesel. Then the hard part starts. Let us know if it is seized?
  3. Have a look at teck talk 2 lines down Ovlov Cameron and Alan Smith F1020 has one text Alan as he sometimes does night shift 021685209
  4. Knead it epoxy aqua at blackwoods
  5. Chop the remaining broken lug off with a hack saw carefully. Measure the pitch of the two middle rivets. From the Chandlers get a U bolt that best suits the pitch of the two rivets and diameter of the U bolt. Drill the two middle rivets out and with sealant and penny washers bolt it up. The penny washers might have to be pre bent to take up the contour of the inside.
