hey guys for my birthday I wgot a winch fromt he old man that he brought a few years ago when he was working in Africa but he never ended up using it. I have the winch mounted on my wagon but not wired up as of yet. not the winch did not come with any instuctions and to me is a no name winch but I would like to wire it up tomorrow.

my question is what cable goes where on the winch motor?

it has 3 poles two are closest to the drum and one is towards the other end of the motor. on the control box there are 4 cables. one long one im guessing goes to the battery, one short red one, two short black cables and one has a yellow boot over it. also there is a 2-3mm wire from the control box as well.

could someone give me a rough idea of how the 3 cables from the winch to control box are connected please?

cheers jc

On the opposite side of the 3 posts there will be another one (maybe just a threaded hole) that one goes to - , The 2 posts next to each other will be F1 and F2 (one to each solenoid), then Battery + to solenoid and solenoid to last post.
