Capstan Winch - SHOP


The front mounted winch fitted to Land-Rover models used different types and style of shear pin:

Fairey Winch - uses threaded shear pin.

Aeroparts Winch - up to October 1971 used Mills Pin, part number 50473 (1/4" diameter) or 250362 (5/16" diameter).

Aeroparts Winch, from November 1971 used grooved shear pin, 581937 which superceded to RTC 7005.

Bollard safety pin in all Capstan Winches should be replaced with high tensile steel rod and not used as a safety feature. If this pin breaks whilst capstan is under load, the bollard will free wheel out of control.
