First day of spring bump. Street driving like this is so fun.

My winch has started to make some noise...nothing serious. Wondering if the only spot I need to grease is the zerk on passenger side ? Thought I'd ask before I start pumping grease in there.

Yeah. That is the only grease point. When is the last time you changed the oil? That might be good too. And check the torque on the winch plate bolts, I have heard they can cause noise if the alignment is off.

Am I missing something here? My warn manual says no lube for the life of the winch. Only maintenance is to lightly oil the cable to prevent rust and clean debris that may build up...

Are you talking about a 8274? This zerk is on the brake stop and just allows it to pivot as the disk brake spins.

I haven't ever changed the oil but I plan on doing it soon. I'll check into it on Google but any pics or advice from you would be appreciated.

Cool, everything I've seen is for a complete rebuild. I was hoping there is some way to drain the oil...'relatively' easy.

Thanks

Here you go gspup. From memory so I hope this is right.

Pop the clutch handle off.



Remove the rusting 3 bolts to separate the case half.





Then remove the 4 bolts on the clutch assembly to separate it from the top of the case.

The top of the case can be separated from the electric motor by 2 bolts on the driver side of the electric motor or you can leave it together. Then rotate the case top off by pivoting it to the passenger side while you pull the clutch gears out.

At this point, you will have the case top off and you will need to either unbolt the winch from the plate or the plate from the jeep frame to dump the old oil out. If you do it the first way you can drill and tap for a drain and fill plug shown here to make easier to do this next year.

Fill plug



Drain plug.



Then reverse the order to put it back together. I forgot how much fluid it takes but warn should say that somewhere. I mixed the fluid they recommend with some thick gear oil per a write up I found. The hardest part is the clutch and top of the case assembly which will have to happen at the same time. Good luck.

I noticed this weekend that I have only about 1" of uptravel on my front shocks now which means that the front springs have dropped just about 2" since I installed them. That along with the fact that my hardtop is off, this gives me a decent rake. I like it and the drive isnt to bad but I did just order some new OME light duty springs that claim a 2" lift over stock, hopefully that should get me back to even. So I plan on getting those installed and readjusting the front axle which I know is out due to the springs now. And I order some bling from rokmen that should be here in two days.

You don't want to guess? Hint: Hendrix just installed some on your LJ from a different mfg.

And I do GB. Let me know what you need from me and thanks again.
