Default Looking for advice on an 8274 build

Hey guys I got most of an 8274. Pretty much one put together without a motor or solenoids. Then I got another motor connected to a broken case. IV read about the Albright method, where have the others that have done this got them? I saw them on eBay but it looks like there are a few different models. I don't know if I should use the other motor it came with or upgrade now. Just looking for a faster winch for my jeep. I could take a nap while winching with my Ramsey.

Also what other rebuild parts should I get since I'm already going to be in the winch. It's an old 8274 it isn't the -50.

I recently switched to an Albright Solonoid and a 9.5xp motor. The thing works great and I got the 9.5xp motor off amazon with free shipping. The motor was a direct replacement. Oh yeah I got the Solonoid from scout on this board and I saw green tree has em to last time I stopped by there. Hope that helps

Just make sure the Xp motor comes with new bolts, cause they need to be a little longer.

I believe Ed at Steadfast has Albright solenoids and Gigglepin motors if you want to go that way.

I havnt done much reading but I have seen something about the older winches like mine have key ways instead of splines and I'm pretty sure it was the motors. But not 100%

yes, the older ones have a keyed motor, you can buy the drive gear on Amazon also when getting the 9.5XP motor. It is worth the update, I run one like that on my buggy, and 2 9.5XP motors on my TJ, Steadfast is the one that orders in the GigglePin Albright solenoids, he sells them to Green Tree and myself, so it doesn't matter which one of us you buy from your getting the same product.

I also have a brand new replacement keyed motor for those winches sitting in the shed, ordered it and never ended up using it.

whats the difference in buying an Albright contactor off ebay rather than the giggle pin one? And from looking at it the bow 2 and the 9.5xp motor are about the same price. Im sure shipping would change that though. bow 2 sounds nice because they say it pulls less off the battery than the xp motors.

The difference in the Gigglepin Albrights is the testing that is done. We talked to the Warn engineers this summer, during the shoot, and they tested theirs at 500A than instantly submerged them in water and retested them. Gigglepin is along the same lines.

I went with the 9.5XP motors because parts are easier to get if I ever need them.

Six States Distributors can get all the stock parts. Their a warn Dealer. Bought everything I need for mine from them, and they printed me of a shop manual for it.
