Mark Bendys' Warn M10000 Rebuild.

Electrical

The following 2 photos are crap! Firstly, thin, cheep lugs. Secondly ,the winch has 8mm studs, and the cable has 10mm (actually 11mm) lugs. You can see the poor compression on the lug from the previous mounting. If you want good current getting to the motor, change these cable lugs to 8mm. Any competent local electrician can put these together for you. Use 35mm,sq cable or bigger. (if you can afford it.)

 

The cable lugs are 8mm X 35mm sq. Cut enough insulation off so that the copper goes to the end of the inside of the lug. I used a Dymo to make labels for the field 1, 2, and armature cables. Then finished it off with clear heat shrink to keep the label on & moisture out of the crimped lug. Heat shrink was $10 from MM Electrical.

 

 

 

To the clown that made the red texta marks, which ones are F1, F2, A, and -ve?

First check your meters internal & lead resistance. 0.3 ohm is....... ok.

Power up the solenoid with 12v (from your car battery or a 12V DC power supply) to check the closed contacts. Should be very close to the test resistance. If its over 1 ohm, bin it as its going to act like a heater / or fail later down the track when you need it.

Next test is to make sure the main contacts are not welded. With meter again on resistance, there should be "infinity" or open circuit, as if your meter leads were on nothing.
