I was given a 10000lb Harbor Freight winch, by my FIL. It needs a "bearing plate" even though it has no bearings. Harbor Freight told me the part is no longer available. I hate to get rid of it as the rest is in good shape. I think one from the 8000 pound one will work. This one was named "road shock"
I keep hunting Ebay and Craig's list with no luck. I hate to junk it. would be handy to have around.

Whatever it is, you could probably have a machine shop make one for you.

See if you can get hold of Chicago Electric, they used to make them(winches), and might have some NOS parts still on the shelves somewhere, or they might know of a replacement part.If not maybe they could give you a print for it and you could have the local Iron workers make the part or you.
We make alot of our own parts, as long as we have a print or picture to go by.As an example we built a 30 ton log splitter from just a picture.

There is no "Chicago Electric". That's one of the various house brands Harbor Freight stamps on their Chinese junk. Presumably Chicago Electric is a takeoff on Chicago Pneumatic, but unlike its reputable namesake, Chicago Electric has no connection with Chicago, Illinois, USA. Apparently HF really likes Chicago Pneumatic, as they copied not one, but two of their brand names from CP, the other being the infamous "Central Pneumatic".

Its more than just a plate. You need the entire Roller Fairlead. Harbor Freight still sells wenches so I would try to fit a roller fairlead from a current model to yours. You might have to add steel or weld the fairlead to yours but I bet it can be done.

The diagram is for the smallest wench HF sells so I know it wouldn't work for you. I just thought it would give you an idea of what to look for.

I have a Chicago Electric generator. That a customer brought me. Fours years later I am still trying to find parts for it. You may have to toss the winch.

Harbor Freight also did a rip-off of the Lincoln tombstone welder, and called it a Chicago Electric. The Folks at Lincoln were not impressed. They sued, and Harbor Freight lost.

I just googled "fairlead a$$'y " and several different ones come up .Maybe you could adapt one from another brand ? It's just the roller guides for the cable, you could make different mounts for it ...

Not all fairlead/winch rollers are mounted to the winches.

Its not part of the fairlead. Its a cast part that is between the drum and gear box.

It costs money to stock repair parts.Most import machinery has no parts back up.When you can get parts the prices are sky high.When I sold stoves a new grate sold for 16.00 now its 95.00.I sold a stove that could burn coal for 250.00.The door for that stove costs 335.00 now.I see many parts marked up 100%.Son and I cleaned up the shop.I was surprised at the small engine and TV parts I have left that will never sell.

36- put all those parts on Ebay. They WILL eventually sell. I swear, you can find anything on there if you are patient.
