Sounds like yours is a Warn 5687, the predecessor to the 8274.

Does it look like this?


And have controls like this?

Nope - mine is an 8274 Jeep SE w/o a clutch. Brake yes, clutch no. See pics above. It's a 79 and I was confused that his pic of what is supposedly a 77 has a clutch...which I didn't think came until later versions.

Just mounted mine the other day. It came with a mounting plate, I used the frame brackets from the old winch. I cut off 2" from the outside of the plate, and added new gussets.

Walker, now that I am home, I can see the pics you posted. Darn network at work doesn't show most of the pics...

Honest mistake...but I'm still confused that the older model 8274 steveo posted would have a clutch while mine doesn't...unless it was an SE thing to be without? It has the impression on the upper housing, just nothing there. I love it anyway!

Unless someone filed off the code every 8274 has a serial number and code number. You can call Warn, give them the code and they should be able to come close to the year the unit was manufactured.

This is how I found out my winch was a 1979 model, which does have a clutch and free spool function. Don't know what to tell ya about your '79. They haven't change much over the years.

Mine is from 1984, the serial numbers don't match anything I found on the web, mine does say 1984 on the motor plate. You might try moving the hose clamp for the control box.

Thread jack off soon - there's actually a date build calculator on Warn's site, which is how I figured out mine is a 79...what I was more getting at was how the guy steveo might be purchasing one came about with a '77 build date.

So Trap - is yours an SE model? Wondering if that's a factor or if it was simply an option at the time.

Seeing Lucdog's pics of his winch and cable, it reminded me of the ole saying "never saddle a dead horse" when putting on cable clamps. His are installed correctly. Here is a pic that helps explain it.



Quote:
When working with wire rope, it is extremely important that several guidelines are followed with regards to termination. Any time the wire rope needs to be attached to a hang point that would cause the cable to sharply bend, a device called a thimble must be used. Thimbles simply guide the cable into a natural curve shape and offer a degree of protection to the cable in the loop. To secure the end of the rope, wire rope U-clips are used. These clips provide an effective means for terminating cables, but must be used properly to be fully effective. Figure 4.3 shows correct and incorrect methods for applying these clips.

The correct sequence for applying U-clips to a piece of wire rope are described below:

Turn back the appropriate amount of cable from the end of the piece being worked on. This amount varies with the diameter of the wire rope, but is typically from 12 to 18 inches.
Apply the first clip nearest the very end of the cable. Always leave a couple of inches of extra cable beyond the clip. Be sure to apply the clip properly -- the U-bolt goes around the dead end of the cable, while the saddle goes around the live end. Tighten the nuts on the U-clip evenly, and to the torque recommended by the clip manufacturers.
If a thimble is being used, insert it into the loop, and then apply the second clip in the same fashion as the first, but only finger tighten the nuts.
Apply additional clips evenly between the first two clips. Two clips are usually sufficient for wire rope under 1/2 inch, but three are often used for safety. Wire rope of diameter 3/4 inch or greater requires four or more clips.
Tighten all clips to the recommended torque. Apply the load and re-tighten the clips. This re-tightening is important, as wire rope tends to shrink in diameter as load is applied.

Another method for securing the ends of wire rope is through the use of swages, or nicopress sleeves. Small metal sleeves are pressed on to the wire rope with a special tool. These sleeves are permanent, but act much in the same way that clips do. When properly applied, swages can hold the full rated working load of the cable they are attached to.

I do not have a winch yet but it seems like it would block airflow to your rad. Anyone have temp problems in the summer? Would 200 lbs sound right as total weight gain including mounts?

There is a code towards the bottom of the data plate that contains two letters and one number. The letters correspond to the day and month of manufacture while the number is the last digit in the year. In the case of the one I'm considering it has a 7 indicating either '77 or '87 (this code method ceased in the 90's). I know this one is a '77 because the remote plug is metal. It was plastic in the '80s versions.

Never had an issue with cooling.

I've also not had trouble with cooling, but I've only had it on a week and we haven't hit extreme temperatures yet here in CO. Also have not been doing any slow crawling where there's not enough air flow to begin with.

I'd guess between my bumper, mount, and winch, the whole thing weighs just shy of #200, but the winch and mount come in somewhere around #120.
