I installed a Superwinch LT3000 winch today on my new 400 Sportsman. It went ok, and everything works as it should. I watched a Youtube video prior to installing that was a big help, but in the video they were mounting a LT2000 and he said make sure you mount the winch with the cable spooling from the top. I followed his instructions but later saw in the manual that the winch was to be mounted with the cable spooling from the bottom (I also researched the LT2000 and it says the same thing). After looking at it, and reading stuff online I have mixed feelings about correcting it. The angle looks much better for plowing (which will be its primary use), and others have stated this online saying it is better for the cable to be top spooling. Others say that you should follow the manufacturers instructions and that it could effect the braking mechanism. I'm just looking for suggestions. I'd obviously be more than happy to leave it as is, but also dont want to replace it after using it for a few months.
