New to me 8274 (I think)

Hey all! I just (think and hope) I scored a Warn 8274 on Craigslist for $150. It needs to be rebuilt of course so I will be crawling the rebuild threads on here.

I would appreciate some help identifying the exact year and model and if any of you have any tips and tricks or other info about it, that would be great too.

I sent a request to Warn, but who knows how long it will take them to get back to me.

Thanks in advance.

That'll make you a great winch. I have contacted them about parts for my 8274 and they got right back to me, great service.

Looks like a Bellevue. Some interchangeable parts, so I've read - it was the immediate predecessor to an 8274.

Definately not an 8274, but I think walkerhound is correct. You've got a Bellevue. It is similar to the 8274, and the predecessor, but it will only pull. There is no power out. If I'm not mistaken, I believe they were all cable controlled from the cab of the vehicle as well.

ok, I must admit to being a bit bummed about it not being an 8274. Time to start hunting for ways to upgrade it then!

Well with a bunch of web hunting it does appear to be a Warn Belleview AKA Warn 5687. There are a bunch of mod threads out there to sift through. The primary differences between what I have and an 8274 is the controls, motor and braking mechanism. So I am going to dig in and see what it takes to modernize it a bit and get it onto my CJ5.

Seeing as how the wife and kids want food and clothes, and the Jeep wants new parts, this will have to be a slow build. I'll keep this thread updated with what I find. Please feel free to offer suggestions and information! I can use all the help I can get.

Thanks and cheers

ok, wait a sec, let me backup. Your saying I can swap the 8274 clutch and brake setup on it? Do you have a link to a write up or have you done it?

TIA.

Chewtoy,

Yes, you have to swap the upper housing and clutch assembly to turn a 8074 into a 8274.

Clutch assembly – part #8326

Upper housing - part #9285

Call Warn service department at 800-374-8028, they will take care of you.

Edit: Sorry, I just realized you had an #8000, not an 8074. I'm not sure if the above information applies to your model.

Matt

Yeah, the case is split vertically vs horizontally. I am thinking I am going to pass this on to someone who can use it for a period restoration. So that being said, http://boise.craigslist.org/pts/3748249512.html is the add for it. I have it listed for $250 as a starting point, but I am happy to pass it on to a forum member for the $150 I bought it for.

It seems to work great, just needs a little TLC.

Thanks Guys.

X2... Warn is pretty fast about responding on their winches.. great service, TERRIFIC product!

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his JEEP!...

They did get back to me within a day or two. But all they said was we don't support that winch anymore and pointed me to John of MN 4 Wheel Drive. John wasn't all that helpful except to say "its not worth it" to update the winch.

I am sure Warn are good folks but this winch belongs with someone that doesn't mind it's short comings or is willing to wrestle with it.
