    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    just loosen/remove the allen screws all the way around that hold the clutch lever side to the main housing and rotate the freespool housing- dont pull it out, only rotate!
    Align with the holes nearest to where you want the lever located and reinstall the allen screws. Done.

    don't rush it...

    look through my pictures for reference of the clocking and sealing.

    I'm currently rebuilding a M8000 now.

    silicone is better than nothing but you will need to let it breath somewhere if you seal it off. Ill be running a 2-3' extended breather.

    I just recently rebuilt my Warn 9.5XP, had my brother help and he posted a little video on it.

    Check out the video, we clocked the winch at the end when we put it back together. Starting 8:10 is where we clocked the winch. Hope that helps.

    You only need to separate the housing about 1/4" to clock it. Don't just jerk it apart.
