If you don't have have a parts manual for your winch.
This will have all the cut outs for the fenders. Hydraulic info and a lot of other useful stuff.
I have the crossover part numbers for most all the bearings and seals if you need them.

Just my 2 cents worth on metal cutting. I am by no means a metal fabricator but have learned through trial and mostly error. Gas torches have their place but are messy. Couldn't live without my 3M cutoff wheels but by far my plasma torch is a great "go to" tool when cutting metal. Not very expensive but a good investment in my opinion.

Thank you for the link, I have a downloaded version but would be nice to have hard copy..
One thing I dont remember seeing on your winch repair post was the brake band. A local shop wants close to $100 to reline mine and I dont think that is going to happen. I have located band material and rivets but the correct tools are going to be a problem. Can you offer any advise on relining or a more cost effective place to have it done? Thanks

The brake on my winch was nearly new so relining wasn't something to be done. There are rivet setting tools on Ebay…...some cheap....some not so cheap. YouTube has quite a few videos on how it is done on brake linings as well.
As far as a shop doing the task you have to remember that's how they pay the bills and earn a living. It is not terribly difficult but it does take time and some materials. So $100.00 for the job has to be thought of as to which side you are on....giving or taking..... :)
If you feel comfortable then give it a try and save some money......nothing wrong with that.

Have a good day.....Bill

I run the .050 as you look at the other the wrong way they crack or break, set your grinder down wrong and they brake. as for the rivetting we do it at the shop sometimes not very hard all homemade tools. you can do it simply with a C clamp and a little die. I can get you a pic next mouth when I back to work as i am stuck at school 6h away from home in the city.

Thanks for the thoughts on the brake, I will probably give it a try.
Did a little more cosmetic work. My tractor didn't have the precleaner so I salvaged this one off of a parts tractor.
It's a little beat up but a little time with the stud gun, slide hammer and body hammer its looking pretty good. A little body filler at paint time and it'll look good as new

More cosmetic work, I must say welding fenders is a lot more fun than welding track chain. I still have to cut a hole for the hydraulics pump but nice to see a full fender attached where there never has been.

Got the fender cut out for the hydraulic pump and made a little shield under the fender to help stiffen the fender and protect the pump.
Got the new skin on the right side fender and have it mounted.
Going to do a little bodywork on the hood and start on some mounts for the canopy
