Questions about a Warn Model 6000 upright

I saw the post a week or so ago about the warn model 5687 and was wondering if mine is about the same thing. It looks identical to the picture of Pontiac's winch. It does however say manufactured by Warn. It seems to work fine but I would like to be able to reverse the polarity on the motor so I could reverse the winch (wonder if the brake would work if the spool was reversed). Also what kind of oil do these babies take?

Here are a couple of pics

Re: Questions about a Warn Model 6000 upright

I am also curious what the proper way is to wire one up. I suppose 2 solenoids would be all you need since you don't need to reverse the motor?

Re: Questions about a Warn Model 6000 upright

Steve, I had a winch like that on my CUCV. I tried to reverse the wiring to get reverse, but it wouldn't do it. There is a guy that builds the brake stuff and has new cables for your winch. If you call Warn they will give you his phone #. I would use 2 solenoids in parallel and use a HD momentary switch on a 15' 10 guage 2 cond cord for an actuator. Pontiac (Jim) has a lot of info for this winch also...

Re: Questions about a Warn Model 6000 upright

Yes that is the same winch. I just put a new motor on mine. We were working on finding a in/out motor for it but just ran out of time and i needed my winch back, badly. As soon as i have my new springs in, cage built, and do something with my steering i will get back to finding a motor for that beast. The gears are straight cut so it doesnt matter if they go forward or backwards. The brake wont care cause it just wont.

What do you use for your brake cable i am thinking of useing a truck throttle cable.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: Questions about a Warn Model 6000 upright

I am supposed to get the stock in cab controls from the guy I got the winch from. For right now I went and got a 9ft choke cable from advanced auto parts. He is supposed to give me a cable to engage and disengage the winch too. A friend of mine that is a little older than me said he remembers seeing them on wreckers and he said the brakes actually used some kind of spring to hold all the time (dunno how that would work seems like it would wear out the brake). The winch is in really good shape and worked like a champ this weekend at Monteagle (It was nasty and I used three times). It was very fast and had no problem pulling my jeep up.
