6-7.3 Adjustment of the Brake:
The torque required to turn the winch input shaft, in the lowering direction against the worm brake, should be 40
to 45 foot lbs. If a torque wrench does not show the proper value as it turns, then the worm brake adjusting bolt
should be turned clockwise 1/4 turn. Each time the adjusting bolt is turned, check the torque reading on the input
shaft. Continue this procedure until the proper torque reading is achieved. Then tighten the lock nut.
A torque wrench can be equipped with a special adapter to fit the input shaft (worm) of the winch. The adapter
can be made by welding a nut to the end of a piece of tubing as shown in figure 6-3.
