You should have ordered the English edition :biggrin:

I think they're based in centurion, why not give them a call?

Yep, I have!

Shall I take some photos of the tricky bits over the weekend and post them here?

Dirk, it's too dark now to take pictures, and since we're both attending the Fundi tomorrow it'll have to wait until Sunday...

I hope this helps. Shout if you require better photos of a specific area...

The rear area is simple - it consists of a roller on each side containing a single run of the webbing. This webbing runs inside the U-channel of the hoist to the front part, where it is fitted to a dedicated roller on each side.

The front part is a bit more complex. You'll end up with two rollers on each side. One roller lives inside the other end of the U-channel and guides the webbing that comes from the rear of the hoist. The other roller lives inside the top part of the fancy 45-degree bracket and handles the webbing for the front part of the hoist. The 45-degree bracket is bolted onto the inside of the U-channel. You'll have a similar setup on either side of the hoist to handle the front and rear of the webbing:

The bottom part of the 45-degree bracket contains the shaft that actually performs the lifting. You'll fit the rear and front webbing onto this shaft, and repeat it for the left & right sides of the hoist. The webbing going to the rear roller is obviously much longer than the webbing that goes to the front:

A shaft connects the bottom of the two 45-degree brackets together so that both sides are lifted by the same amount when you crank the handle of the worm gear.

I found it easiest to construct it on the ground first. I took my measures like that, then I welded some flat bar to the underside of my roof, drilled holes where required (the U-channel of the hoist is pre-drilled at appropriate points) and bolted the hoist onto the flat bar.
