    Default Warn 8074 Help

    Ok, so I went wheeling today, and thought I would use my winch. That was what I got for thinking. Got the 8074 (sorry wrong number in the thread line) powered out well enough, started to winch myself up a hill, and then nothing. Motor ran, but something wasn't grabbing. My winch is so old that it doesn't have a free spool, so I knew that wasn't the problem. It really had me baffled. So when I got home, I took the upper housing off to take a look and see if I could figure out what was wrong. Think I know, but now I can't seem to find a way to fix it.


    See, no freespool lever.




    Now if the driver gear as I am calling it is over the push pin, it is solid, but doesn't come in contact with the other gear that turns the rest of the winch components. If it is in line with the other gear, they both spin free of the motor. What am I missing? It seems that the drive gear freely moves back and forth along the motor shaft.

    Ping Warn. They'll typically respond with diagrams and parts lists.

    That's a rare model. The 8274 is similar enough this article may help. It's a good write up on rebuilding an 8274:

    Thank you all for your input or lack their of. I have checked out the write up on pirate. The only thing is the 8274 has a clutch release on it. Since mine doesn't, I think that there is something missing, but I don't know.

    Well, it looks like I have found the answer to the question, now I just need a solution. It appears that there is suppose to be a key that holds the main drive gear in place. Now I have to fish and see if I can find the key in the oil. I'll update more when I have it.

    Found the key, and another spacer that was suppose to me on the motor shaft. I stuck a rag in between the lower gear and housing turning the gear. When it came up the other side, there was the key and spacer on top of the rag. I have to thank Ron from Warn. He was the one that provided this trick and insisted that I do it before I try and find the new parts. I kinda thought that the parts weren't there, but hey, look what I have now. A working winch. Not to just take it out and try it.
