The Blitz had an even better trick.If the clutch pedal was pushed while there was a load on the winch,the clutchplate would spin off the linings.A truck that was drivable one minute was undrivable the next.Regards John.

Will any damage occur to truck if you chain the front to a tree and winch from out the back?

Hi.
I'd first check that you have an actual shear pin in the winch drive-shaft first and that it hasn't been replaced with a high tensile bolt.
Not sure about damage to the truck by chaining to a tree though. For safety, I would instead park the truck where you want to winch from, dig some holes behind or in front of each of the wheels, maybe a foot deep with straight back-walls and roll the truck into them. If the holes and the truck brakes hold and the shear pin doesn't break, your load should pull up to you safely.

I'm actually working on a digital copy of the original Vehicle Recovery handbook that all drivers used in training, but its slow going as it's a copy of a copy of a typed original and is very hard to read.

Greg.

When I was in the CMF we had Studebakers,and one of the drivers decided to lift the truck with the winch to change a front tyre,using a branch on a big gum tree.The branch broke and smashed the cab.But we all saw nothing,knew nothing,and it passed as an unfortunate accident.The Inter shear pin is a load of rubbish,and will shear at the first hint of a load,leaving you stuck.Its just a 1/2unf bolt with some of the thread removed,and a spare can be made with a file or an angle grinder in a few minutes.Regards John.

Just to remind people, I still have the reproduction shear pins.
OK.
I'm ready to distribute the shear pins.
They are $15each plus postage.

To get these shear pins, follow these steps:

1.  PM me how many pins you want, the name and the postal adress I am to send them to.

2.  I will reply with the amount to be paid including packaging and signed for postage. I will also include payment details in the reply.

3.  When I have confirmed payment has been made, I will post the shear pins.

I hope this is a simple enough process.
