Oil on brake band and clutch disks

Post by 2010OWNER » Sun Oct 06, 2019 5:59 pm

I'm rebuilding a 3325 winch for use on my 2010. I just opened it up and found the clutches and brake oil soaked.
On the old Series 20 winch, I had good luck heating things with a propane torch and soaking in denatured alcohol when the pressure plate would spew brake fluid all over everything.
Does anyone have a different process they have used successfully?
Yes, I know it is best to buy new clutch disks and a brake band, but spending another $1800 just isn't in the budget.

I just rebuilt an 8-a winch. I relined the brake band and clutch pads for $320. Call Asheville clutch and brake in N.C. should be good to go as long as your bands are in good shape
