anybody ever deal with a braden mu8a, hu8a, or eu8a?
ive got a hu8a in my basement that got taken off somthing....
it is missing the hydrolic motor on it but frankly i dont want to replace it because A i dont want to spend that much to rebuild a winch that might work
B i dont have a hydrolic setup nor do i really want one

so is it easy to convert these to essentially being a Eu8a or a Mu8a
honestly i dont know shit about these besides what i can learn from looking at mine

any thing anybody would be willing to offer up for info would be nice
dont tell me to go to there website and look up PDFs i already did

and finnaly anybody have a clue what they are worth?

Try a military vehicle forum or civilian (flatfender) Dodge power wagon forum. Most of those old trucks had Braden winches on them.

ok so now sombody check my thinking on hydraulics

if i take this winch
http://www.paccarwinch.com/product/hu8a.asp

mate it with this motor
http://www.drillspot.com/products/39688/char-lynn_101-1701_hydraulic_motor

and then find a way to mount a snowplow hydraulic pump on my 73 cj5

and take the snowplow control from the same truck as the pump comes from

and slap it all together will it work?
will it work adequately?
is it worth the 300 bucks in parts to do this or should i ditch this and just go buy a new system
