    Yes mate. You can see where the shackle hit as an impact puncture but the massive spread of damage to both doors is all Strap. That is a Tough bit of door too!!!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Good clear explanations and easily understood. Its really simple trig stuff when it comes down to it, 'triangulated ' forces or vectors, easily missed in the field under duress and when the operation appears to be nothing like the theory. Good find @MB

    Here’s another interesting test from Robert Pepper on Snatch Blocks versus Rings:

    https://youtu.be/rdlRRAbzCzA

    Appears at the 20:00 mark that we should account for an approximate 5% efficiency loss for a Snatch Block & 10% efficiency loss for the Rings:



    He’s going to do some more tests soon to see further affects of mud etc....



    Efficiency variance seems to not be much of an issue to worry about in his opinion:

    This is a Great Video about the Maths of using a Bridle to centralise the load across the chassis.

    Fundamentally we need to consider the side load when winching from an angle. This video explains it quite well.

    Using a single length bridle across the points rather that 2 3m straps to the hook. 1 6m strap with the hook around the middle that can slide.

    The further away from the vehicle the centre of the bridle is the Les the angle and the less the side load is. A 6m bridle, so 3m each return, seems the best option.

    Do yourself a favour and Watch the Video.

    Thanks for the content Hodge!
