Re: engine shuts off when winching
You have a problem somewhere in the system because the problem you describe ought not to be happening. It is possible your wiring up of the winch may be at fault. Have you run the winch earth directly to battery? If not I suggest you do so now. It may be that the motor is shorting internally and drawing way too much power. I suggest you get a auto electrician to chech the current draw whilst the motor is operating. Good luck to you.
