I thought you was making it a 4 wheel drive, LOL. I seen it on Sprockets Garage and you only had the one pic and it looked like there was CV axles on it already.

Turning out good so far man, if you can afford it Id suggest winch rope, Ive ran both and I like the rope, just easer to work with, plus you can get a fairlead and 50 of rope pretty cheap off ebay

Yeah I'm looking at some 1/4” rope
Says it's rated for 8000ish lbs.

As for a fairlead, I'd like to draw one up and do it on a CNC mill out of aluminum, or maybe UHMW. I have the material to do either i think.

Lovely job on the pto winch! I didn't think of using a peerless 700 before. What size sprockets and pulleys are you gonna be using?

It's a 3" on the engine to a 6" on the gearbox. And I think a 9 tooth on the 700 to maybe a 20 on the jackshaft? I'm not really sure. I haven't worked out any ratios yet.

I think it was in neutral. I think it had some residual drag. Many trans-axles with no tension will turn in neutral just from the grease or oil sling.

Thanks everybody. This is going better than i thought it would lol

That's funny. I just about finished the belt system for this.

Not a great picture but you can kinda see what's going on. Just a regular single pulley clutch. You may recognize that the clutch is in fact on the wrong side of the belt, but for this I don't think that's an issue


The lever i made for it. It's Budgie's deck lift lever i cut up and bent. It may or may not stay like this, we'll see.


Mighty was correct about the residual drag, it does have a bit in neutral

The belt does have a tendency to spin when the clutch is disengaged. I added a few keepers and it got a bit better. I can still stop it by hand so i figure it won't be an issue. I'll keep it in neutral most of the time anyway so.

What's left to do here as far as i can tell:
-Fairlead
-Weld drum together
-Figure out how I'm securing the first few wraps on the drum (I did order some winch rope btw, should be here around christmas)
-Winch brake setup (Using the stock caliper on the 700)
-Check whatever lubricant is in the 700 I haven't even popped the plug yet and I've had it a year
-Blow everything back apart and paint it

Got a good bit done today

Made a fairlead from the bumper and some square tubing


A brake for the winch. The cable is a regular mower throttle control. I have yet to mount it.

Thanks. I did do the math and it came out to like 23rpm at idle, but i think it's more like 35 to 40. Just going by eye though.

Cool setup. You can probably pull out the rope while it is neutral? Maybe drill a hole on the side of the drum to secure it with a knot.

Winch brake lever, regular mower throttle cable with a little modification to put a knob on


Orientation of brake actuator lever had to be swapped back to normal for practicality reasons. Didn't require any modifications of hardware.


Anyway here it is all together and painted with some old rope on. The new rope should be here tomorrow or the next day.




Merry Christmas everybody!
