How much does a 1923 Model T Ford Fordor sedan weigh? Need to know so we can purchase correct WARN 12 volt trailer winch. Jerry
Jerry, because you are working with a "rolling load" your capacity need not be enough to lift the car. I would recommend 1500 to 2500 cap. Be sure that it has the "free wheel" feature. Remember if more capacity is needed a snatch block
will double the capacity and half the line speed
of the winch. I also suggest you buy the kit that
includes the battery cables and "plug-together"
connectors that will tie the unit directly into the vehicle battery. Also required will be a battery post adaptor to allow the installation of another hi-amp conductor.
Bruces book says 1950#
