8274 Question

I recently purchased an older Warn 8274 (manufactured in 1985) from a friend and have a question about the power-out function. The winch only powers-out when there is tension on the line. Is this normal?

By the way, thanks to those who recommended welding supply stores for power cables.

Re: 8274 Question

Whaddaya mean "older"? That's not old! Mine is a 1978 model but still works like new. It should power out no matter what the load is. Sounds like there is a problem either with contacts or in the gearbox itself.

Thanks Snowtow, I had a feeling it wasn't operating normally.
