So not so much "project" as maintenance, but the weekend found me deglazing brakes.  They haven't been happy since NH.  Much happier Approve
.
.
In project mode, picked up this over the weekend... been looking for a match for the Ramsey 200 lever winch for the front, but with the short drum "Y" option.  Having had ZERO luck, when this DCY popped up I had to grab it up.
.
.
.
Currently set up for a 2" receiver, the mount, 12v motor and solenoid are going away, I'll source an input shaft bearing cap, and "wa-la!", instant Ramsey 200Y lever Thumbs Up.  The 6" long drum will allow this to fit in the rear of the frame up in the "vee" with little help, and I'll have pto winches front and rear.

Last little tid bit is a little confession as part of what I envision will become 12 steps Embarrassed.  I promised myself I'd focus on one jeep instead of having 2 or 3 or (?) all vying for limited time and funds.  I find I can't pass up a good deal on decent L heads.  I haven't fully reconcilled if I'm stock piling, or hoarding, and I assume I'll know how many is enough when I get there Wink.  Don't be a hater...some people collect stamps.

Do you buy a new engine stand every time you buy another Go-Devil?  Smile

Of course not!  You can always take two of the stands and make a tub rotisserie, too, for the dual-purpose factor.  Thumbs Up

So found myself with a little "me" time LOL

Finally got around to putting my winter whites on (spokes)... 
.
.
not personally a fan, but the task ahead is breaking down the KH's for paint.  These five, plus a second set of five, plus two from the bantam Wacko
.
Finally got around to giving the first Ramsey some love.  Now I remember why I don't pay big bucks for this kind of stuff. A little bit of water got in this one and I spent HOURS hand fitting everything back together properly.  Good to go now-
.
.
.
still have to get the vent and the tag back on, but it's come a ways- to include bearings and seals.

Just once I want to open something up (that the seller said was working perfectly) and not find something bent, broken, rust pudding or missing pieces...

I found this old Ramsey for $75 at the GreatWoods/Tweeters swapmeet a long while ago. This one had a partially open vent and the gears are way worse than yours. It still works. The teeth are now thinner due to severe rusting.

I priced the smallest gear at the motor, which was the worst, and it was beyond stupid expensive. I know a simple spur gear from Boston gear was cheap, and it would just need face width reduction on the lathe.

I think your best bet is going to be to assume the worst from now on, sadly.  Confused

Yeah, I've already moved on to there awhile back I'm afraid... won't offer more than I'm willing to walk away from, and there's a world of difference between "working", and working under real world loads.  Despite the water and rust soup the gears are actually more than  salvageable.  The caged needle roller bearings on the other hand....  Best part, I guess, is that the electric drive is being set aside and the winch will be driven by PTO.

No doubt, Ramsey parts are, ehem..."cost prohibitive".  Not sure that's better than unobtanium LOL.  $75 is a really good deal these days, and worth the risk, IMO.  Trouble is everyone seems to think old = $$$... I think my guy was asking 3-350 and I got him  down to 100-125.  Drop $100 and THEN find out you need a worm gear or shaft..or both Dead  I needed the spool friction disks for the long spool model 200 I finished above (little hockey pucks slightly bigger than a nickle), and after shipping they were right around $50 for the pair Shocked

EWW that's gross, I'm going to need to change into my dirty cloths to play with you! LOLLOL
Ship of Theseus - As years go by wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new. After a century, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

So the winter projects are piling up... Mail call from my WI trip in January (thanks, Lee! Thumbs Up )
.
.
.
My current seats are 2A frames with short military style backs, which "may" be out of a CJ2...as yet to be determined.  Will know more after disassembly and closer inspection, but they need a little refurb themselves requiring the disassembly anyway, and the short backs really look odd with the tall back rear seat installed.  Already have bottom pans and springs, need the taller back spring sets.  Then I'll polish up my 7th grade home ec sewing skills and see about making some covers for the taller backs (I'll reuse the bottom covers)

Fairly certain this is the first time in at least 40 years these pockets have seen top bows (repops, but after a little tweeking they fit Smile )... On to paint!
