    OEM Winch Restoration

    It was the shear pin location in a former life. ......what they did when eliminating the "shear" part of the equation will dictate how to remove it. Typically done with a bolt, but your PO may have gotten extra crafty.

    FJ25 (and some early 40) Part Numbers

    Yes everything with the vent. This happened to go in a '62 frame with aftermarket glass that was probably cut a bit large.o_O
