wow, glad to hear you're okay with all the stuff going on down there. Is your winch hydraulic? We don't see many factory winches up here, they were never available in north america.

best of luck on the repairs of your truck, and of your city.

How i read, it is common for this winch to leak from one of the seals. They are easy to replace and not that expensive, but may take a long time to get them from Japan. Aisin which was not the option in NZ LC's. Am i right? Your's is HDJ81? I read somewhere on Russian LC forum the full step by step Aisin AI-1000 rebuild thread. If i will find a link i will post it here. You ether can translate it or just look at some pictures there. Also check the attachment. If you need full version for winch service let me know.

I hope it will help.

:cheers:

You might have a problem getting the bolts out that hold the winch to the winch plate.

I broke 4 of them off.

Good luck.

Hi,
May I know the overall dimensions of the Aisin AI-1000 winch? Just need the overall length and height. Just the winch itself and not including the support plate/brackets.

Thank you.
