Replacing cable Molco model 102 winch

Postby David Morris 21 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 12:19 pm

G'day,

I have a Molco model 102 wich which needs a new cable.

How do I replace it and keep tension on so I don't end up with a birds nest?

Regards

Dave

Well I'd refrain from replacing the cable with wire.
I'd use Dyneema for trailer/boat winch & either Spectra or Dyneema for the keel winch.
Just pull out the old & refit the new using strong hand tension & when you get to use the loading will reel itself up as normal.
Don.
