Hi All

Well I'm a little behind getting my truck CANADA into the MV of the year 2019 competition but lets start with a large photo of the truck is now.

Enjoyed the Migginsbros posting about the center mounted winch on their Man.

My 1941 Pattern 12 Canadian Military Pattern 3 ton cargo has a center mounted winch The winch is rated at 14 Ton pull, basically it doesn't have a shear pin like modern winches. If you are not careful you can fold the truck if you don't stop pulling. The winch can be run out either to the rear or to the front of the truck. It carries 125 feet of 11/16ths cable. What you see at the beginning is the truck backing on to the winch scotches, which are ground anchors the weight of the truck pushes them into the ground and the cables keep the truck from moving. The following short video shows it in operation.

The one of the drawback of this design on the CMP is basically doesn't have a shear bolt or safety device. The only weak point is the universal and drive shaft to the winch.


More photos and info to follow.

Cheers Phil

Maybe for those not in the know we should explain the entry of 73m819 a bit more.

Ron (73m819 ) was a quiet but well liked and respected member of our SteelSoldiers family with an amazing amount of technical knowledge of our trucks (and a healthy dislike of CUVCs :ROFLMAO: ). He did not mid getting his hand dirty or share information to help another member.

Due to a tragic accident, he died on January 13, 2019. To honor him, several of us have changed our avatar (see mine). and also the high command decided that there would be no competition for MV of the month March, but that place would be given in honor to 73m819.

Below a picture of Ron at the controls of his wrecker during an engine change at the GA Rally in 2014.

RIP RON GA rally 2014  17c.jpg

More information about this can be found in his memorial thread.

Just looking at the pics, nrs. 2, 3, 6, 9, 11 would be at my "shortlist". However, in this case, the choice is made easy. Honoring a friend comes first.
