Well.....sometimes i just have to remember those 4 little initials k-i-s-s....keep it simple stupid!
I tried what my friend said to do....lasso the motor and use the winch
....no go cuz the bracket doesnt stay unlocked...
Bought a motor harness from wm and was going to try the block and tackle thing....then i thought hmmmm. What if i just tie a rope
around the release, and pull from there? Then i can use two hands to pull and this would also keep the release unlocked....that worked...yay...
harness (that i will return) $29.99
1 lockable clamp pliers (didnt work either) $11.99
1 piece of old running rigging
