Long story short, I found a Warn M8000 winch in my grandmothers garage and she said I could have it. Pretty stoked since I already have a warn front bumper and mounting plate.
Anyway, I think its at least 10 years old, that said it looks to be in mint condition aside from the cable having a few little kinks. Is there anything I should look for before I fire it up to see if it works? I know they need to be taken care of and I'm sure it hasn't been run in at least 10 years. I cant find the controls, I will have to but one, are the plugs the same/have they changed at all over the years?
It currently has the quick disconnects because its on a hitch bracket right now. Are those cool to keep when I permanently mount it?
Lastly, my biggest question, I found a power interrupt kit with it. I have figured out what it does but cant find much about them otherwise. Should I bother installing this - do I need it?
Thanks for the responses and Im sorry if any of these questions sound novice or have been answered before. I cant find much info on this elsewhere
