Belleview winch install on my "B"
« on: January 11, 2020, 06:32:52 PM »
It's been a long road but I finally got my rebuilt Belleview winch installed on my CJ3B. I originally installed the winch with the bumper in the original location but found the lever to engage the winch was too close to the grill to operate.  So I added spacer blocks to move it forward 1". I beefed up the orig bumper mounting to handle the winch. Still need to buy/install the winch controls and wind the removed cable back onto the winch.

Spooled up the 150' 5/16 that came on the winch when purchased, I swapped ends and cut off about 6' to remove a kink and frayed area. Been researching a heavy duty continous duty solenoid to replace the blade switch that powers the winch through the 3rd push pull cable.  I ordered a 500 amp NVX solenoid and went to Napa for the other two control cables and a push button switch to power the switch when needed. Still need the battery cables to supply power, going to use 2/0 sized cables. Winch operates great with only a jumper cable installed on motor to spool the cable.

Looks like the drum easily handles 150" of the 5/16" cable.
