From my quick findings this equates to around 2.2HP. Doesn't seem right.
    Hi Mark. It actually has more to do with how the motors are wound. The Iskra is i believe a continuous wound units that is designed for a static machine operation and continuous load and when adapted onto a 12v winch it was found that they simply dont load up like a series wound motor. They take the load and keep going. Lets face it that is when things really get ugly. Loaded and lacking current and the Iskra will just keep pulling.

    These first came to light when a bloke had a Pallet of them sitting in a shed and figured they were the same spline count as a warn and offered them for peanuts to guys in the comp scene as spares. they were $150 and being handed out left right and centre just for the spares box. Seriously!! Excess Stock on Clearance. Give it a gfo! I was short of cash or i would have grabbed a couple. Well it turns out they are a Beast and plenty of guys running them as their motor of choice now in comps winch challenge trucks. I have not read of a single Dead Iskra motor.

    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.

    Extra little mod for you Mark. Sorry just spent 30 minutes looking for a pic but can't find one.

    Drill 2 x 6mm holes through the case below the lip and through the retaining plate when in position. And the 2 x M6 bolts through. You need a 1mm spaces (maybe 2mm. A couple of washers) to space out the retainer so it slots into the top housing groove.

    I have had this retainer Fail. Whole winch us out of action when it does. Easy mod makes a difference.

    Some photos of my own high mount mounted in an ARB on a GQ.
    I cooked the original motor early last year so put the roadrunner bullet motor on and refurbished top and bottom using the std warn kits.
    Seeing some of the mods suggested here next time it comes out will add them in.
    Chose the roadrunner motor partly because it came with a breather fitting as std. The old motor had been modified with a breather.
    As you say Mark it is shoehorned in. There are two ways to get mine out. Pull the bullbar off or pull the upper housing off then wriggle the bottom housing and drum out.

    Looks like you spaced that back a little Ryan? i have fitted a few into the ARB Deluxe bar and instead of spacing back i have notched the cross bar. looks tidy and give you a little more room at the back.

    The winch and bulbar were on the vehicle when we bought it. The winch is mounted hard against the std mounting holes with no spacing. Yes its tight. The plastic grill has been trimmed and have a front mounted intercooler.

    Cheers
    Trevor

    Cheers Trevor, that must be the Commercial bar ARB. Tidy, they have a bigger nose and designed for a himount. The deluxe bar needs a far bit of trimming to fit a himount in and a Big hole in the grille. Lol.
