Is there a problem fitting one of those to use a small pump? I seem to recall they didn't play well with the way the case was mounted, but I could be getting a bit mixed up.

I've been considering moving to a hydraulic winch at some point, if I can use the transfer case rather than an ancillary pump to run it.

The last time I saw one of those PTO units used was on a Defender. I know people have managed to get them working on other vehicles, but I don't remember which ones.

I'll be on the lookout for previous write-ups, but more current observations may be of use.

Cheers,

Kennith

I don’t think there’s any room on a d2 to utilize the PTO.. look under the vehicle for yourself, there’s like an inch.

You also need an input gear that has the teeth to utilize the PTO. D2’s didn’t come with them. I have one, but I switched to 1.4 gears from Ashcroft, which requires fitting a different input gear, intermediate gear, and hi-range gear.

It's muddy as hell outside.

I've seen a number of different solutions over the years, and heard mention of the tight fit, but until now I hadn't really considered it. As such, I never really looked down there with any intent to fit a PTO.

The transfer case will be pulled apart a few months from now, anyway, so I figured it might be a good chance to see who's thought of what.
