Warn-Belleview-Winch-m8274-houston-tx

“The original model of Warn’s iconic electric winches, the Bellview Winch is 8,000 lb rated and was produced by Warn industries until 1974, when it was replaced by the Warn Model M8274, which is still in production today. These winches were popular ad-ons to old Willys Jeeps, International Scouts, Early Broncos, and 4×4 pickups.

The winch works with manually actuated cables that fix to the dash-mounted control panel, and run through the engine bay to the winch and the knife-switch. The cables control the power-in function, the clutch, and a manual drum brake. It is VERY uncommon to find one of these winches with the original under-dash controls (complete with factory WARN blue cables) as well as the control switch.

This winch was a factory option on a barn-find 1974 Bronco, and its serial number shows that it was one of the last Belleview winches to be made at the end of 1974. It would make a great piece to add to a vintage restoration, or use as is on any vehicle, as a similar new M8274 costs around $2500.”

    EXCUSE ME ?? — 5000 SEMOLIANS ?? — NO. 1 — ITS NOT A 8274 — ITS A MODEL 8000 — EARLY ONES ARE MODEL 6000 — I JUST MOVED 2 OF THEM YESTERDAY IN MY BARN — ONE HAS A BRAND NEW WARN MOTOR — THE BLUE CONTROL CABLE UNIT IS STUCK UNDER ONE OF MY 49 JEEPSTERS — ARE YOU SURE YOU DONT GET A JEEP WITH THIS ??

    ok , I took time to read the ad — its 500 bucks — and he says its a belleview , which is correct — he didn’t say it was a model 8274 — my mistake , i’m an old man and don’t see too good — it is a model 6000 or 8000 I believe — all mine have a brass serial number plate on top — this one doesn’t — ok , back to work or be a jerk ..

    I mis-read the ad and had the model wrong, too … Looks like I need a vacation day.

    Tommy,

    I’m not familiar with that particular model, but generally Warn makes a good winch.
