Then i put the original plastic center from the trailer connector back in that i drilled the 3/4" hole in, then put the 3 pin winch connector in.
*make sure you put the little set screws back in that hold the plastic center.
then i drilled two pilot holes just slightly smaller than the screws i had on either side of the 3 pin connector and then screwed the screws in..
then i got the winch and took the 10 screws out holding the clutch lever so i could rotate the lever to a better position. i beleive they are a metric 4 hex head.
i then carefully broke it apart and rotated it... you donot have to take it all the way off, just seperate it enough to rotate it, the cable drum will rotate aswell. becarefull of not tearing the gasket. the winch i have is very old so i just siliconed it back up.
(rotate 3 holes clockwise)
ok, now just tighten the screws back up and grab a cutting torch. take the spare tire out for extra room and space to work with.
i didnot have one on stand by asap so i had to use a saws off. i would recomend disconnecting the solinoid pack and unspooling the cable off of the winch to reduse the bulk and make it a little lighter to handel.
cut the back of the bumper out 6"X21"
and cut two slots in the bottom. then cut a hole for your fairlead out of the front where you want. and the hole where you wish to place the 7 pin housing. ( 2.25" hole) either use the cutting torch or a 2.25" bi metal hole saw bit.
