It was the owner at 8Ns that told me to buy the 12 volt, as it would be better if I did a conversion down the road.
I have a spare generator, but I would like to drop the DuAl loader as it is next to worthless, and I would like to add one of the two Warn winches I have sitting around. Other than that, I would be happy with 6V. I am not even sure the winches are worth the effort. I have an 18K PTO winch on the front of the truck already. It was milsurp off a 5 quarter.
There is no rebuild shop locally, and while I have done a few, I would like to be able to have the thing running in the least amount of time. It is only the first part of winter, and I need it for the driveway.
The best idea might be to buy the DB and a rebuild kit. I have a lathe if I need to take a ridge off the back of the armature.
