Re: A quick look at the Hickey worm gear winch

Specifically they hit the mounting rivets of shackle. I doesn't matter if I move the winch slightly back or more forward, it will hit either way. Also if I do move the whole unit more forward I run out of frame to drill any new holes (the holes would be too close to the frame edge). Do you have any close up pics of your mounts, maybe from the bottom? Did you have to use any shims to get it to work?

Here you go! And the notch was already in the mounting bar, I didn't carve it out. Mine bolted right in, but I did make some bad assumptions at first,like trying to put it inside the frame channel.

This is the driver side, note the motor on driver side.
