1. Gearbox output multi-position flange (page 2) to drum bracket can rotate in eight different mounting positions for your motor and gearbox components

2. The drum must be in-line and centered to the guide roller or hawsepipe and bowsprit to ensure an even spread of the rope and chain to the drum.

3. Ensure sufficient room to run electric cables to the drum anchor winch. Follow the instructions in the manual including under-deck stiffening, alignment, mounting blocks and sealing procedures.

4. Both exposed wires from the winch motor must be connected via joiners/solder and then heat shrink, including internal silicon to wires (see cable chart, page 7 in Drum Anchor Winch Manual) to eliminate corrosion or water entering wires.
