Awesome!! Thanks Dave!! look forward to see ya Sunday...
If I'm not mistaken I think it was Kevin saying that "some of these winches produced in China or such places have poor soldering jobs and prolly should be taken apart and re-solder with a good silver solder"... if this be the case...any recommendations to where to go to get this done on my sparky new Champion??

Just something I was told from one of our members. It seems to be a fault with some import motors.
I'd say any good motor shop would be able to give you a price on checking over the motor. I do know that poor connectors lead to major heat build up. These winch motors may be perfect! Just throwing out a heads up.

Jeff - Check the solder joints, If they are shiney they were properly heated and the silver in the solder raised to the surface and the lead remained inside. The normal mixture is a 60/40 solder. that means 60% lead and 40% solder. As Senior Technican Inspector on variousl projects and a Quality Assurance Inspector for several years, I have had many occassions to inspect wiring connections of all types. Normally a good visual inspection will provide the required non destructive testing to validate a wire assembly/installation. If you want some verification on your winch, we can set something up.
