Land rover winch

I'm thinking of getting a capstan winch for the front of my Landy
A nice addition to an old land rover might only use it once or twice but could be handy if I get stuck in sand on the beach one day
Anyone got one?

I used to have a SWB series 3 with a capstan winch run off the bottom pulley, great bit of kit & more useful than the modern drum winches imho. I wish I'd never sold the bugger

I'm on the military forum as I have a lightweight but the search only reveals two posts
If you can put up a post that would be good
Thx

I have owned a couple in the past , as said above great bits of kit.

If you can find a complete aeroparts these days they are big money, faireys a bit more common but still not cheap.

I have been collecting aeroparts bits for a few years and have just in the last few months got a complete set at reasonable money

If you do get one: be aware that there are several different types of engine mounting brackets for the crank drive dog , 1.6/ 2ltr or 2.25 they are not interchangeable and are the proverbial hens teeth.

If you need any help with any info just shout and will try to help if I can.
