Two other places I always check are State colleges as the teachers could use "projects" to do. Also, look into trade schools.

The rattle sound you mentioned that was gone...would you attribute that to the motor or the planetaries? And when you cleaned up the drum, did you clean out the inner brake surface as well, and could that have been a source of the rattling? I re-greased my M8000's planetaries and did a once-over on the motor and brake, and the rattle was still there. Perhaps I didn't use enough grease? I also see that you didn't use a moly grease...do you think this might cause issues with the high-pressure contact and shearing in the planetary gears? Everything I've read about greasing planetaries like that said to use moly grease for added lubrication between the gear teeth.

I think the rattle was due to the condition of the planetary gears and existing bushings. As for the inside of the drum, I did wipe it down and clean out any junk but it was relatively clean so I didn't spend much time on it plus the brake looked good. For the grease I used the high temp stuff I had lying around my apartment. I didn't want to go out and get the Aeroshell or other moly lube because: What I used is better than what was in there, I had the high temp grease readily available and I don't use my winch regularly. Worse comes to worse I'll pull it apart and replace what I need too. I paid $300 for this winch and I've gotten more than my money's worth out of it so however it can help me from here on out is gravy. One thing I think you should do is replace all your bushings and lube it up good. Don't pack the housing full of grease but be liberal when putting it on the gears.

Did you ever swap from wire to rope?

I wanted to but I couldn't justify the cost. $63 shipped for new 5/16" steel cable with a thimble versus $200 for the Amsteel Blue I was looking at in the equivalent size.

Would have been nice though.

I know that you can but I don't know of a place that does it. It still had a glaze on the rotor but it was darker than it should have been.
