finally got around to installing my rear winch. Before I started I had to remove some home made bumper brackets I had in place for many years until I purchased some and had in storage was just waiting until the right time to replace. in order to install the rear winch bracket was a good time. So I had to replace home made mounts with NOS type mil spec mounts.

Working by myself you learn the tricks to use racket straps as the two man lift.

Once I had all the brackets resolved I began to replace the factory A frame bolts and reverse them with new 3/4 10x6 grade 8 bolts. I have to tell you those bolts on the A frame bushing are tight :oops: . I used my floor jack to break them loose :mrgreen: . So now how to remove and replace the bolts. Thanks to Ted on his idea of jacking the HMMWV up and placing a floor jack on the A frame so not need to remove the springs. I placed the jack at the bushing point and placed jackstands on the cross member then began to hammer out the bolts while sliding the replacement 6" bolts from the inside out in order to mount the winch mount. By the way I placed a cushion on the spare tire to keep from hitting my head.

Once that was resolved, placed it on the floor jack and up went the winch and mount. Drilled out four 9/16 bolt holes for the rear mounting placement all good now, next the wiring and lines.

All mounted next is working on the hydraulic lines and electrical. So I need some help here with some ideas and solenoids configurations and wire diagram. I know there are a few folks that have done this but I never received any response for information. Any help out there will be appreciated. Going to watch some NHRA today.

looking for the body valve item #10 which is NSN: 4810-01-485-8109 I believe this may be a cross reference number #12469437 the TM has 994-95000470-C. I called a few places which state the cross reference number. The needle in the hay stack part.

I would need items 4 & 5 as well

just purchased this hard to find valve. It took some creative thinking to get it from mile marker. Just awaiting all the other parts to arrive to start putting this together. I'm going to maybe place some jumpers from 785A & 758B to a two way toggle switch to solenoids to allow both winch's to run sperate with the same controller. The toggle will power them up. I know no other way. Then loop the hydraulics I think. Again once all parts arrive I have to figure it out.

Going to have to build the bracket unless someone has one?

ok just received my hydraulic valve from mile marker. In fact it only took a week when i was told when I ordered it that it may take up to 8 weeks.

Here it is nice and new
Image

Making the bracket out of flat stock. I had no breaker/bender so I had to be inventive using vice grips and a hammer.
Image

Image


ruff in before sanding and paint.
Image

I notice the location has to be on this side because of the control box and the shape of the hood. Right where it goes the hood flares up allow for the room.
Image

Image

ok this part running lines along side the frame away from the exhaust and up around the frame up to the valve.
Image

after connecting the lines now Im working on trying to obtain a y splitter fitting. More to follow.
