Tejas, since you are not always going to be using this in salt or brackish water all the time, don't cover it with a pipe or with fish oil(marine grease-really dirty stuff )

What you can do is get the rope pressure washed along with your vehicle,then use a cloth dipped in any motor oil and rub it along the length of rope, proceed to rub it off with a dry clean cloth.This will clean and lightly lubricate the rope preventing it from corrosion.

Store in a gunny sack.

That sounds like a good idea. Will follow Kunal's advise when i visit the pump soon!! Arka and now Kunal have suggested that it be stored in a Gunny sack. Why put in gunny sack? Any special reason guys, does jute arrest rust or something?

Not quite!
It is the CORE of a wire rope that NEEDS the lubrication most!
Any oil/grease that does not have the 'temporary' volatile components ('light' components) to 'penetrate' to the core, immediately after application, are essentially just cosmetic!

That is a good point! So you could lubricate with wd-40 and rub it down with oil.

^^ That's a wheel winch, right? Is it commercially available in India? I know that these are available in Australia.

Nope , wheel winches are different , these were the old on field tricks !

These are improvisations ( may be not a correct word ) , with what ever they could use.

In the first pic -- its a dual wheel assy like the big trucks , not much use for Jeepers , the rope would be wound between two wheels .

But in the second pic -- its from outside the wheel , I think its worth trying

So first things first...

You can just copy paste from the URL (including the http://) into your message and when you do a preview you will see that the editor is usually smart enough to figure out it is a link and show it underlined/clickable.

If that does not work then you can always click the link button above the editing space...the globe with the chain link and insert your link there.
Hope that helps.

As to why I did not share this link earlier if I knew about it (I think that was the question?),

2 Reasons:

1> I did not know about it until you posted it (which is why I thanked you for sharing) and it took me 10 seconds to get to the source of the material (using one keyword) and the material for a few posts above that (many sources available freely all over the internet). Was inspired by you to share the actual source and document repository. It is purely a matter of personal choice to open up the source rather than let it flow in drips and drops across multiple posts. Both our intents are the same.

2>

Looking forward to many more links in the future!
