I recently discovered while attempting to have my front end aligned that the pto shaft of the Ramsey ?x200 winch on my 1963 CJ5 is rubbing (putting pressure) on the steering bell crank. I have had and 4 wheeled the jeep the last two summers over some Colorado passes and my guess is the problem was already there when I got the jeep two years ago and I didn't notice. Possibly it is from a small lift put in by a previous owner. There does not appear to be a problem with the frame, cross member, steering bellcrank, connecting rod or steering gear. Both parts, the shaft and the bellcrank are starting to flatten slightly where they meet and I need to lower the shaft it appears. It seems I need about 1/2 inch to an inch to have the shaft go below the the bellcrank. After looking at the housing that comes from the transfer case there are three bolts that have three placement options located inside the housing. I would need to open the housing to remove the bolts and place them in either of the next two hole options. It looks like that would lower the shaft just enough to give me clearance. I am hoping someone knows if this is why the housing has three apparent bolt hole locations (for adjustment) and if I am going to run into any major problems to open the housing and move the bolts. My other thought was possibly the winch itself could be lowered in the frame to give clearance. The P.O. had used the winch before but I have not used it yet. I have enjoyed reading your posts over the last two years and have finally joined. Thanks for any help you can give!
