Fitted the new winch yesterday and tested it by pulling out a couple of unwanted small trees out the front.

Old winch has been checked out perfect apart from a little wear. Problem I had with it was a short through the insulation of F1 and F2 cables - caused it to effectively apply the brake by energising both field coils.

So I have a spare. Might get a towbar cradle for it and run some heavy cable back to it, might be too lazy though

Better to be prepared.
All ZD's should come with a backup pair of engine mounts.....in your choice of LS or TD.
