How do I test a 8274 winch motor?
I bought a used 8274 winch. I am in the process of rebuilding it, and realized I never checked the motor. It there an easy way to test that motor? I have no electrical leads right now. I was hoping I could connect it to a charger or jumper cables. Any help would be appreciated!
I've been through that write up, which is very helpful. Unfortunately I have most everything taken apart. Is there anyway to do a quick test on the motor itself, no solenoids connected? The motor is still connected to the housing.
Be sure to hang on tight when you apply the juice to that motor. They jump real nice from the torque. You don't want to drop that thing on your toe, it will leave a mark.

You can check it out with Volt ohm meter. It'll do everything you need to do to ensure it is good including checking for shorted coils,(field and com),opens including the armature and you will know if it is any good without having to put power to it and run it. The manufacturer can give you the electrical spec or better yet they might be here in this forum if you search.Jack.
