I have some time off work this week to play with my S46 4x4 camper. I was looking at the hydraulic winch today, there is a chelsea PTO control knob in the cab, do I pull this up to operate it or push it down? Neither action makes the PTO light illuminate on the dashboard. Next to it is a small black lever that I asume operates the winch inwards/outwards?

Looking on the winch there is a knob that pulls up and then it looks like it the lever should move to the right but it appears to be stuck. Is this for freespooling the winch? Any idea how to unjam it without damaging anything? I have left it soaking in WD40...

What combination of gears and hi/lo/neutral do I need to use to operate the PTO/Winch?

Which of the above should I being doing in which order?

Sorry for what might be obvious questions to some people but I don't want to break anything/anybody by getting things wrong!


Cheers - Matt.

PTO  :  To Select.

Select neutral in vehicle G/box,
PUSH p.t.o. knob down to engage.
Select neutral with Transfer g/box lever  (between High & Low)
and finally select required gear in vehicle G/box as recommended by winch manufacturer. ???     3rd Gear .
if difficulty is found engaging pto try depressing clutch to relieve drive.

Lever on floor is in & out for winch .  but dont know which way.  (forward = out would be Logic )

DO NOT DRIVE OFF with PTO ENGAGED !  

To disengage pto reverse the above.

A small knob on the floor in the middle is : Pull up for Vacuum operated centre diff lock.

Tried your advice today. Didn't work. Got the lever to move to free spool - still VERY difficult to move. Finally crawled underneath and forced the lever that attaches to PTO control a bit further and it worked! Might need a bit of lube and adjustment, couldn't have done it without your help and info.

Thanks - Matt.

Thanks for the   "thanks"   Matt.

 Surprising how some just glean the free information & never take the trouble to reply  ! 
And you wonder why people get  Tourettes !

  So...... Glad you`re a bit nearer & good luck with it.
