What's really nice with these parts is that a winch can be tailored to perform how the user wants it to depending on what the vehicle is set up for and according to budget. Not just for speed but also better power, increased reliability, and efficiency.
If only the inline adapter fit the Bowmotor 3...

Bow3 with +25% GP Ratios in std Warn gearbox top




Offered out of Austraila. Wayne Smith is very well know in the offroad challenge world.

This would be a very good set up for those not wanting the double motors. Very simple and to the point upgrades that make a world of difference.


My next upgrade will be the gear set.

So how's this one work, Jason? Are they getting the +25% by the max rpm of the motor increased over the stock warn motor or are they making a kit to replace the stock 8274 gear set in the upper of the warn to get the +25% and adding the Bow3 motor for good measure?

I like the idea of this one over the giggle pin unit just because you still have the option of a manual free spool.

+ 25 gear set. The bow 3 probably maxes out the speed of the stock gears. Just like the twin motors the speed comes from the motors and +25 gears.
I'd like to see someone build this particular setup. Like Ed said--- the parts for this can be ordered through him and tailored to fit the rig it's going on. Would be a great way to go to warm up an old 8274.

I can't wait to see the Bow3 motor in action! Current prices would be cool too!

Mostly posting to subscribe, but I have a Warn (m8000?) that is basically the in-between of a Bellvue and an 8274. It has the same case halves and brake system as a Bellvue, but it is labeled a Warn. It's been in at my parent's place in AK since I rescued it from the dump a few years ago, and I just recently managed to get it to my place down here in Reno. I will probably end up putting it on my trailer since I can't invent a simple way to get an automatic brake on it. If anyone has any info on it, I'd be interested in learning more. When I get around to overhauling/modifying it for my use after I get my garage sorted out (parents are moving out of state and I filled a 16' trailer 4' deep with tools that I have now inherited), I'll post pictures and info on where I go with mine.

How about posting a wiring schematic for the Albright contactors? This is one mod that can address the most common problem in any winch-solenoid failure. Please include schematics for original motor as well as aftermarkets if they are different.

Owenst,
The winch you describe sounds like an 8074, it was an intermediate winch between a 5687 and an 8274. Good luck!

Ive been thinkin about doing a 8274 with the giggle pin dual motor setup. Fast line speed is great but would it be effective with my truck being as heavy as it is?

No it wouldn't. They work best on lighter rigs.

Probably not Big T. 8274s are at home on smaller lighter rigs. You need a mean PTO on yours. Speed and heavy *** truck durability.

With this tcase pete brought me, its the bw 1356 w/ the pto option and my range box was based off the same case too. Only problem is finding the pto unit for the cases that im not gonna pay an arm and a leg for. Apparently this pto unit is really special and not all that common.

When ever was the Warn 8274 PTO driven and how does this apply to tech or builds of this thread.

Default Re: 8274 winch info and builds

Reading the last 3 or 4 posts in this thread gave me an idea for the heavier rig guys. Why not build an adapter to install an inline set of Gigglepin or Bowmotors on a PTO winch? This could be built on a 6" swing lathe, as a welded assembly, some thoughts: the adapter would be flanged on one end to mate to a motor, with a provision for a sealed bearing to support the pinion shaft of the motor in my experience, enough room inside the adapter to allow a splined coupler/???? drive for the PTO winch, usually round or square in my experience.

The only drawback I can see is that PTO winches are usually driven by a horizontal shaft which would no doubt cause clearance problems with a 20-24" long motor/adapter assembly. A solution would be to index or "clock" the drive end up 90 degrees and have a vertical motor adapter assembly, this would have a secondary benefit of raising the motors to help keep them out of water.

Most PTO winches are worm gear driven so there would be no need for a brake. This would also allow the use of a PTO winch with a dead engine.

Thoughts?
