I'll tell you what, Dale. You guaranty to get both winches apart without destroying anything and I'll fly you down to do the job. LOL
Of course if you fail, instructions or not, and you screw up a couple of 8k winches that work just fine, you can replace them at YOUR expense. Should I book the ticket today?
