Samson winch gearbox


Recommended Posts

Hello all

my Samson has developed an oil leak from the gearbox that sits between the cone clutch behind the engine and the hydraulic pump anyone ever taken one of these out, they're a bit buried is its hard to see where the leak is coming from. There is very little detail in can find in any of the manuals regarding this part of the vehicle. I can't even find our what sort of oil to put in it. I'm guessing 20/50. There is a little dipstick to check the level. Any help appreciated

Problem solved

The drain plug for the gearbox had been sealed with what looked to be a rubber O ring & had perished allowing the plug to come loose. I think it should be a dowty seal. The winch gearbox is a weird set up tho, the gearbox is after the cone clutch, but the oil drain is below the trunion block that is before the cone clutch. Anyway new seal & hope form the best!!
