Jim: Check the TT archives. This very issue was addressed a couple of months
back. I believe that a Grainger or other firm's item # was provided as a
good quality replacement. Perhaps another list member will know or have
saved that info.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Winch for TX-455
> I am in the process of putting up a TX-455 (circa 1993 model - probably
> pre-U.S. Tower) that is in need of a new winch. The existing winch is very
> rusty (it still turns OK) and does not have a locking mechanism. Any
> identifying information on the thing has long since faded away. Any
> suggestions on where I can find a replacement winch for this tower? U.S.
> Towers does not list winches as replacement parts on their website and I
> imagine they would charge a hefty price for one anyway.
> I would imagine that winches come in all types and sizes. Is the critical
> dimension the distance between the two mounting bolts for mouting on the
> tower? In other words, how do I select the correct type, given a choice of
> various models?
