    Winch on Kaiser is fixed. A winch manual is in the glove box. It actually wasn't that difficult when using the instructions and some help from people who have experience. The come along did the job. Once the hook and chain were clear I could run it out by hand. And engage the dog. As...

    Really good info guys That DID have me confused.. See picture of winch control placard. I have a single lever for the PTO. Its really sloppy. This I believe is what really got me in trouble to begin with and I didn't have second person to watch. Still working on finding that manual.

    The hook is still caught around the steel horizontal brace across the back of the winch. Its in a impossible location to get to with any kind of prybar. Several people have tried. I got enough rotation so the cable is relaxed but not enough to get the hook unhooked. With everything now...
