No good deed goes unpunished Any tricks out there I could use to prevent me from having to remove this winch from my truck? While winching some guy from some soft snow, like a newbie, I allowed my cable to spool outside of my cable drum. Of course it bound itself up tight while spooling in under load; the motor now only clatters either way, like some clutch has engaged. I am unable to pull the cable out as the tension on the spool prevents me from shifting the clutch lever to free spool. And no amount of chiselling with screw drivers or metal bars seems to release me enough slack to do anything. This is a factory Toyota winch and I'd hate to remove it as the bumper would come off first.
