    Compatibility issues continue to haunt me. Have synthetic Master Pull winch line nicely attached to my Flat Link. Decided I needed the rope guard. With some coaxing I got the Guard in place.

    The issue is the line thimble doesn’t allow the line to lay out just right. I’m sure it’ll be fine. Or, the thimble will eventually distort, or pop the guard when under load. Sheesh.

    I’d take that guard right off. Would drive me bonkers.

    Thought about that considering my penchant for OCD, but the way in which it is installed is fairly permanent. Four rivets that take some work to set.

    The thimble is a pretty firm plastic. I believe on my first pull it’ll compress and self right. If not, yes, paperweight.

    Can you grind a notch out of the rope guard with a grinder or dremel tool? Or better yet if you know a guy that has a machine shop you could have it milled out nice and clean. :notsure:

    Did have success running my wire to back of truck for the Viair. Wasn’t able to properly mount just yet as new bumper coming at the end of the month.

    Bought two sets of connectors so as to make a pigtail with the original alligator clips on Viar power cable. Using only three of the four sections of connectors leaves one. If anyone is going to do similar I have one you can have, then you’ll only need to buy one set.

    Good thought. Yes, I believe that’s possible.

    Yeah yeah yeah yeah. You don’t have to rub it in. I watched the vid, but only about hammering in the rivets. Guess I’ll be drilling out the rivets on Monday so I can reinstall. Nice we have a brand new drill press at work. Leave it too me to learn the hard way.
