It is an upright winch the following info on tag
series 8000

Can anyone give me any info on this winch?
Is it a good winch?

Thats a bellview model. Its basically one of the first 8274's. I have seen a few of them around and I have a bunch of pw on it at home that Warn sent to me.

I believe there are only a few places that carry some of the parts.

It was controlled by a cable system which was done inside the cab.

i can figure out if it is worth it.I have a weak spot for
old working stuff.
thanks ron

Sounds like a decent price to me. Pontiac58 has one also. Send him an email.

I picked up an old warn 8274 from a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for $40.00. Best deal I've ever made. Guy was just looking to get it out of his garage. It works too. I've used it a couple of times and I am extremely pleased with it. You'll definitely be happy with it once it's up and running. BTW the serial number on mine starts with 29. I can't remember the rest of the numbers.

Warn sent me an old parts manual and some other info..I have one on my '71 Jeepster. It has been a reliable unit for the last 20 or so years. I tried to attach a pic of the manual, but the size was too big.
The rep. said that the main gear is no longer available. Never have had any trouble with the unit. Just check the lube after dunking it, as they are bad to take a drink...

Warn sold the rights, parts, etc. of these winches in 1992 to the 4 Wheel Drive Center of Minnesota. Give them a shout, talk to John, 1-800-328-4445. Several years ago I had to rebuild the one on my old "Cruiser"! They stock the parts, have rebuilt motors in stock for them, etc. Also, check out this link to POR on rebuilding the 8274. Rick
