Hi, thanks for the info. I will look into a lathe workshop and see..
bueler? Is from a movie Ferris hurlers day off. It’s used in a way of asking anyone for a question. It’s in reference to a specific scene . Just ignore me 😉
thanks for your help
While I’m here annoying everyone, I need to find a coupler that can connect 2 different size diameter shafts.
Well hell.. I finally did it. I removed the spool. I ended u removing the spool from the motor and then tapped (hard) on the tip poking out and it finally budged. The mallet just did have enough power..
thanks to everyone who helped, it really pushed me to keep going..
now to put it al back together and pray it still works 😉
but now I can buy a new winch and do it properly.
Hi, so I figured I would pull the motor apart to see if I can free the spool. I’ve already dropped down the rabbits hole so why not..
so after removing screws the spool came free and the shaft is still stuck tightly to the spool.
im at a loss.. I still can’t believe the guy on youtube did a few taps with a mallet and was easily able to remove this. He must of done something else and skipped it which of course means his video isn’t a proper instructional. I was duped 🙁
Thank you so much for taking the time to give your thoughts on the matter.. Because this is now a damaged motor to a certain extent, im going to use it for testing as the turning power hasn’t seemed to be affected, but the bearing does turn its way out.. I will see if I can hacksaw that end black bit to see if it releases the spool.. I have a mechanic friend that might be able to help.. do all the experiments on this and then maybe buy another and get it right..
Cheers thanks to you and to everyone who has helped thus far..
Nope definitely not plastic. its part of the metal spool… not sure what to do now
Hi, I assumed it was metal and recall it was cold to the touch, I will check tomorrow when I’m in the warehouse and see . Thanks
Hi, thank you for relying. Yes I can push it back in although I have pushed it in hard just till it stops, you can see from the YouTube clip I posted previously that when I run the motor the spool works it’s way out. I will try and push the bearing back in place and see.
here is a photo of the end of the spool. Was identical to the YouTube clip I watched of the guy would used a mallet to remove the spool. But maybe mine is crimped to stop the spool from coming off..
Hi, I tried everything to get the spool off, and I appear to have broken my engine 🙁 The spool seems to be connected to some sort or bearing or something I can see it and it now comes out when the spool turns.. I fear I have broken it.
You can see in the video.. lucky it was only $220aud but I really don’t want to have to buy another, especially if the spool doesn’t come off ..
anyhelp with my new issue would be appreciated. and yes im a noob and yes i am not trained in any sort of mechanical engineering unfortunately
Hi, I have just purchased that exact hoist and I have come to the part I must remove the spool from the shaft. I saw someone on YouTube just took a rubber mallet and tapped it off, but I can see that it isn’t possible if hit it pretty hard and not budging.. do you have experience with this type of hoist and removed the spool? Did you have to open the gearbox to remove it or can it be smacked off with a rubber mallet as this guy does in this YouTube clip?
