I think the thing is the winch is rotated 180 from a normal install. So if my thinking is correct, the cable would have to be wrapped backwards on the drum, in which case the control would function the opposite way from the diagram on the control. Or, the cable was left as installed from the factory, and while using the winch the cable will rub on the winch mount, before touching the top roller.
It's hard to explain.

Ah, I see it now. You're correct. I didn't look at the orientation of the winch, just the direction the cable was wound around the spool.

The way he is running the winch now he will prematurely wear out the brake in the drum due to as the winch powers "in" it is fighting against the brake because he has rope rolled onto the winch backwards.

I didnt do alot. I got mud/ice/water out of my front tsl that slipped a bead on me last time out. Then put it back on my jeep, I also put the finishing touches on my new bumber I made last week. Basically paint and mounting my spre tire carrier support bracket. I also tried mounting clasps to my hard safari top instead of screws to my windshield frame. The clasps were junk. Had to abandon that for now. Anyone have any ideas for setting up a latch on the window frame that secures the front lip of the hard top?

I believe it is coming off the bottom, but I just bought it as-is already mounted to the mount, so I will double check it. It was spooling in and out fine.

The winch it self is mounted backwards. It should be swapped end for end. It will bolt right back up, there is no differences. Once it is facing the correct direction, respool the line back on and you will be good.

Installed the new front 2.5 Rancho leaf springs (replacing old Rancho ones), Currie spring plates, new steering stabilizer, and HD tie rod and drag link. Jeep is now sitting an inch taller. It was a good decision to replace the springs!!

I didn't say it wasn't clever and I might file that under "temporary trail fix", but I wouldn't want to find that on my brakes...

Agreed on trail fix, but I wouldnt classify it scary. Its just the ebrake lever, and it cant fall out even if the washer falls off because of the backing plate. Now if such method was used to hold the shoe itself on....id say scary ha

Strategically shook the wiring harness and figured out - roughly - why my temp gage hasn't worked for a while. Will chase down the issue when I can devote the time. Also tinkered with my auto choke (Holley 2300) and learned a bit about the small heat exchanger that goes down into the intake manifold. Patched the outer pipe with JB weld so now the heat gets to where it needs to.

Going to look at a running 360 Sunday. Guy wants $200 for it w/o AC or PS pump.

Where did you find that hard top... I have never seen one like that for a CJ5
