Hi Bill and Alexandre,



Just to say that with your kind assistance our chain
counter now works again.
However, the replacement sensor has changed once more.
IFM no longer make IB5124 which was identical in size to the
original sensor.
  They now make IIS266, which does the same job. 



I had on board a sensor from Pochon in La Rochelle from
two years ago which I hadn't fitted  as it was smaller
than the original. This is made by Pepper + Fuchs (

www.pepperl-fuchs.com ). Type: NBN15-30GK50-EO,  Part
No. 088552.   This appears to be identical to the IFM
IIS266. I fitted it.



Both the IFM and Pepper + Fuchs replacements are shorter
than the original IFM sensor and 30mm diameter as opposed to
34mm. However, I increased the diameter to 34mm using
electric tape and it fits very snugly into the grey
container on the side of the winch.
 It works!
