Well, it's not an 8274 like I was hoping for, but I'm VERY happy about this acquisition nonetheless. 150 beans on craigslist. Can't wait to get the 8074 refurbished and throw it on the CJ.

Not a bad price, but parts may be a bit difficult to find

jranger35,

Nice find!

It's my understanding the service parts for the 8074 are the same as the 8274 of the same period.

Also, I assume you are aware the 8074 does not have a free spool feature, which would be a PITA in my book. But, I believe you can convert the 8074 to have free-spool.

I'd give Warn a call....

Matt

Herm's got me covered:

And a significant number of parts are interchangeable with the 8274 from what I've found in my research.

No worries here!

Thanks Matt! Yeah, that's what I've been reading. I know the lack of free-spool is the major drawback for some wheelers, but it's going to suit my needs just fine for the time being. And you're exactly right, there is a conversion process to get it to free-spool.

Oh good - I didn't get very far into researching an old Bellvue when I was looking, but they were rumored to be harder to rebuild and source parts for, so passed on the one I was looking at.

Post some pictures when you get it mounted

Craigslist is your friend. My 7284 I got for 150.00 had no mounting plate. Put a wanted to buy add and got a Warn plate for free from a guy about 12 blocks from my house. My 7284 had the worst 50-60' of 1/2 cable you could find. Found a guy on there that had a new Warn 9000 something and decided he wanted to go with rope rather that wire. Pulled just enough to test the wench, and sold me the 3/8 x 125 foot wire cable that came with it for 20 bucks. He was also in my area. It can be done on the cheep if you look around there and not in no hurry.

The old Bellevue Winches are tough! Although they lack the power out feature of the 8274, they do have free spool. Herm has some great stuff for them.

As I recall, the 8074 had power in and out, but no clutch, so no free-spool. A clutch can be added.

The "2" in 8274 stands for "2-way" ( power in and free-spool).

Here's a nice article on the history of 8274.

I think 82 is referring to the Bellvue's (guessing the name is from the city in Washington) that preceeded the 8074 like the 5687 with the cable controls for the brake, clutch, and power.

I just ran across those winches for sale on craigslist, aside from the Avatar, thought I might be of some help locating the winch for you.. I was looking for one for myself, then a deal on a 9.5CTI Warn (Brand New) came up for just over $600 free shipping, I couldn't pass it up, as much as I wanted the 8274.. ..

Yeah, I realized afterwards that my post sounded like I was contradicting 82.

Sorry, that wasn't the case. I was just trying to direct the discussion back to the OP's winch.

I hear you, and no worries. Different strokes for different folks. Appreciate the help!! I'll post pics once I get this relic mounted.
