    Re: Braden PTO winch

    Thanks.
    I spoke to someone down in TX and he told me they were commonly used on oilfield trucks and that a rig like mine with the side capstan rope pulley would fetch $1200 to $1500 in his area.

    Maybe a later style inching pedal. It's not like a clutch pedal where you are pushing again 2 springs so you will feel little resistance. I'm not sure why the position is so high?

    The sherman get its oil via a sling on the inside of the transmission case. The only real way to drain it is to the split the tractor and there is a drain plug on the bottom of the sherman case
