    Mudski's High Warn High Mount Rebuild into an ARB GU Bar

    Ok.
    So I bought this High mount winch quite a few moons ago with the intention of building it up and "shoe horning" it into my ARB bar. This was some 2 years ago. Or there abouts. Things and life change and as usual, stuff gets left on the bench. I had stripped it apart, bought a few bits, and that pretty much how far I got. Until now.
    So.
    This is what I had bought....

    Pretty shabby. But like most High Mounts. They are built into unstoppable beasts!
    I will quickly run through some pics to where I'm up to...

    So I stripped it down and found a few things that needed to be fixed. Like the motor was fubar for one. But over all it wasn't too bad.

    I took the drum and housing and end plate to Mal at S.G Leslie & Sons in Heidelberg, this guy is the guru of High Mounts. He rebuilds brand new high mounts that have never seen a second of use and makes them better than what they already are. So with the drum he made its smaller. From 3inch to 2.5inch diameter, to fit more rope on. Also, shamfered the end plates so there wasn't a sharp edge to cut the rope, milled down the outer end where the plastic bush would sit, not I have a ball bearing that fits on the end plate.
    He also added an extra oring at the main housing end for that extra protection to inside the housing.

    Mal also welded on some tags for the braces. Supplied me with the bars to suit aswell. And also the drain plug at the bottom of the main housing.

    So the add on bits I have bought are .
    Freespool eliminator
    https://www.the4wdshed.com/ballzy-bi...ool-eliminator
    Albright Solenoid
    https://www.the4wdshed.com/albright-solenoid-12v
    Gigglepin winch motor extended bolts. With the intention of mounting the solenoid to the rear of the motor....
    https://www.the4wdshed.com/gigglepin...ch-motor-bolts
    Gigglepin heavy duty brake shoes.
    https://www.the4wdshed.com/gigglepin...ty-brake-shoes
    Gigglepin uprated heavy duty brake shaft kit
    https://www.the4wdshed.com/gigglepin...haft-mainshaft

    I also got a sticker kit from Warn in the states for nothing aswell, bonus.

    I did buy the Iskra Mahle winch motor, but returned it as I wanted something faster. I know how these motors compare, they are good, really good, but slow. I hate winching at the best of times. So I will wait until my guy has either the Warn 6HP in stock or the Bow2.

    Upon closer inspection I found a small grub screw in the main housing. Not seeing this before I can only assume Mal had put this here to lock in the brass bush that sits in the housing where the brake shaft runs through.

    I also added a triple roller bearing setup to the top housing gear. This usually runs two bearings.

    Then the brake assembly gets fitted into the housing, along with the drum. A few minutes later and its LOOKING SEXY!!!

    Thats as far as I have got...

    So pretty much just waiting on the motor. Put the Pawl back on, add some oil, then the breather and stickers. Then I will remove the ARB bar and find my shoe horn to make it all fit...

    Looking awesome mate. Who told you the Ishkra motor was slow? I'm not sure that is accurate to be honest. The power is delivered differently , they don't suffer load as bad as the warn or bow to be honest and so don't slow down so much. Big winching on big hills the Ishkra will be king mate. Short snatch winching you might come our on top but it's seconds not minutes.

    They are wound differently. If I had to choose and was running 12v then my.money would go on an Ishkra 100%

    MB and Matty both have an Ishkra.

    Well proven solid performer that is almost impossible to kill.

    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.

    Yes under 0 load the iskra is a little slower, but once loaded up the iskra is actually faster. The warn motor actually struggles a bit under load. Wish I went with the iskra.
