    Any tips removing hydraulic winch motor?

    Trying to replace the hydraulic motor in my M35A3. The motor is really seized in there. Pounded some wedges in and have sprayed PB blaster. Nowhere to put a torch that would help. Figured I'd ask around to see if anyone had other ideas.

    This happened yesterday. The spindle nut is still locked in place, it hasn't moved at all. Low speeds, nobody hurt.

    Some welding trucks for your perusal

This M35A3 was purchased from C&C Surplus, it is a 1995 with 13k miles on the odometer. My plan is to make it into a welding truck...
