Braden LU-2 help, also need 1970 transfer case shift boot.

Postby Mopower » Sat Oct 20, 2012 9:58 am

Hi all,

Finally making some headway on the 1970 Power Wagon (labeled an E20 on the door tag) that I've been needing to get going for a wood truck. Factory 383 4sp PTO rig, ex WA state Dept of Game flatbed truck. Pretty beat but mostly all there. Mice ate some of the T case shift boot, so I need to find a replacement, the correct one would be nice. Also need help with the LU-2 winch, the elver was broken and welded, I'd like to replace it, will probably need to go through the winch, it was leaking oil til it ran out a few years ago, and feels like it's stuck.

Driveline to the winch looks excellent!

Cable feels stuck?



Thx!

My LU-2 also had broken lever & the free-spool wouldnt release, but the winch would work via the PTO shaft. I got the spool to release with lots up penetrant & big pry lever.
I think they all leak.

Hopefully you don't have to replace the big brass gear inside the case. I got the last one Braden-Paccar had for the LU-2 model. They did have a new levers though. I will try to find the part number and contact for it.

Here is what I got from Braden (now Paccar) when I bought the new brass gear and t-handle.
