Re: any info on crank shaft driven pto winch?

In reply to:

I am planning to fabricate a system to hook it up to the crank shaft. Any ideas? suggestions? Will a pully work or a chain is required? What about a pully system connected to the pto winch via cable operated dog cluch? Please help

6. If you can't go through the transfer case...
7. Plain and simple,
8. DON"T

Curious, is it bad to have a winch run by the crankshaft?

[/ QUOTE ]1. No, there were crankshaft winches,

In reply to:

There is a lever on the driver's side floor that engages the winch.

4. IMHO.. you'd better know what you're doing,
5. When you start running shafts/chains/gears,
6. Off the crankshaft...
7. Remember the Ramsey,
8. Used a case for the engagement,
9. And for enclosure...
10. That's both safe,
11. And sound engineering for maintenance reduction.
