i took a closer look and i don't think there is a screw in the hole. or maybe it's rusted flat. and the grinder i have didn't do a clean job. how would i get that u-joint apart?

I bought your winch last night on E-Bay. I was wondering wat the mounting bracket is made of, because you said its heavy. Is it just some angle iron, or something else. Thanks.

i assume the bracket is steel. it's thick square bars. i don't know the history behind it. i still haven't got the shaft apart. but i'll for sure get it shipped out by saturday. i may have to have someone come heat up that weld with a torch or something.

Instead of burning it off you can, open up that big side cover u can see in the pic, pull out the drive gear, unbolt where the shaft goes into and takeout the wormgear, and then you could take apart the driveshaft at the slip joint. and then ship it in parts or something.
