Buddy of mine just picked up a 74 CJ5 ( he paid $500 for the whole jeep...Bald tires ..but everything works great...NO RUST!..) with the old Warn 8000...Still works very well...No power out..and there is the lever on the side to operate it...
I just purchased a older 8274. Darn thing winds in fast and strong. better than my friends 9k warn. Now a guy on E-Bay had one close to yours said it was a 8270? Said it came stock on older jeeps . He even took pics of the inside controls. Now mine has power in and out. I'll take a pic of it and show ya. I'm just going by what I saw and was told. So dont flame me.
You definately found a rare whinch there. It is neither a retrofitted 5687 or 8274. I don't remember the model #, but as far as I can tell they were built in the interim between the 5687 and the 8274. Same ratchet type brake as the 8274, but in a 5687 case. This only the third one I have ever seen. They are fast and super heavy duty.
I just got one and it is a warn 8200 only made for 9 months in 73 then they went to the 8274. I tore it down got all new bearing and seals at a local allied bearing and found that the 8274 motor is not a direct replacment but can be made to work . having a bushing machined to put it back together ill c how it works and repost with every thing i had to do to upgrade the motor.Good luck
And revived again in 2009, then again in 2011, and yet again in 2015 .
By me .
Why you ask ?
Well, I was doing an intardnet search, and boom here it was .
The reason for my search was I just took in trade this soooper clean old Warn upright bad ass bull gear winch, but it is clearly older and different than my 8274 upright, which is a superior unit (IMO) .
It is a model# 5721 .
So this 5721 winch, has no power out, and it's my understanding that if you are pulling someone up a mountain side or whatever, when you stop pulling (let off the switch) it will freewheel back out unless you push on it brake lever, which is broke off, as many of them see to be, and I'm assuming for this very reason .
I do not know yet if the above statement is true .
What I am wondering is this, has anyone on here converted this style of Winch to work the same as the awesome 8274 upright, with both power in AND out ?
(Further searching is difficult on mobile, reading much easier) .
Here are a couple of possibly crooked or sideways pics .
I would have thrown in a motivational pic or two, but recently cleaned out my phone, and I goth nothin .
