Is there any fine metal or debris in the hydraulic return filter if you inspect it internally that would indicate a component problem occurring?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Filters are clean I also replaced the brake drums and the main winch motor I have this problem before I did the changeover and I still have that problem

I took apart the high low speed selector everything is the way it should be no broken parts everything is clean no scoring and works fine on this particular Winch their hydraulic Hilow selector valve

If you checked and resealed your control valves, counterbalance valve, reliefs, etc and no problem is found and the brakes are good and there is no fine metal indicating a component problem, i would need to see a schematic on this circuit to research further. I do not have one for this model unfortunately but If you do and can provide it to me I will take a look and offer my suggestions for other potential causes. Let me know
