Default Re: 8274 winch info and builds

Hey Jason, a week ago, when i was using my girlfrieds uncles winch with jumper cables to my yellow top.
It didn't like it much but I was stuck, the wire up top smoked but it didn't burn through the wire or anything.
We used the block and slowly rocked it out of the pit.
It winched back in and we winched it on the winch saver tight.

Now when I bought a battery and I thought I'd fix a wire on the winch motor from cylinoid. The stud broke off at top nut. I tried to unscrew the nut on the post but the post spun and spun.

I tried tighting it and it just spun. Her uncle grinded down the holder nut and fixed the post with tap and die so a nut would go on.

Now it only clicks. Cylinoids click. All wires are getting power when we tested them with a light and moving controller in and out.

I don't want to dirty your thread but I need to know if you think the motor is burnt, or if the post is just not connected inside the motor.
Remember it spins with the nut locked.

I feel bad and feel like I need to it this. He let me use it and now it's broke.
Tapped on motor with hammer. Also all cylinoid a are clicking and working.

Thank you.

just thought I would offer in case you had a hammer crimper. I prefer welding lead over any other wire. used it can be had cheap enough, and it conducts all the power you want. the starter leads on my 7.3 diesel are 4/0 and the starter winds up to full speed instantly instead of taking time to build like stock wires

Chadcmb, I expect when the post (bolt) "spun and spun" whatever was attached internally, isn't attached now, a good motor shop can probably fix it for a lot less than a new motor, as long as the lead isn't pulled loose from the field coil, motor disassembly required. If you don't have experience with DC motors, it's probably best to take it to a shop. TK services is a good place to take it. Good luck, Shack

Ed,
So you're trying the "side by each" motors? Typical shabby electrical, LOL. Nice work Ed!!

If you aren't in a hurry and can wait until the 9th of June you can swing by my place with the winch and we can tear into it. I wouldn't buy a new motor--that one should be easy to make right.

Or tear into it right now. Doesn't sound like you've got much to loose. At this point the motor probably could use a look at the insides, good time to learn what's there and how to fix it. I'm sure you tube has vids of tear downs and rebuilds. Good luck.

i have watched a few videos and done some research, but i would feel a lot more comfortable if i waited till the 9th, it’s my birthday the 10th

ok back to business, if it was my winch i would tear into it now but i don’t want to mess anything else up.

i broke his come along cable, drill bit, winch motor post, and the connection inside.

haha but he is cool with it because im willing to fix it or replace what i can when i can.. $ is tight.


i got to seattle for some heart checkups on the 4th and 5th. then around the 9th we can tear into it. then the meet and greet!

Ed got me started on some wiring and we spent the better part of a day sorting out the details of this going together.

A Giggle Alien if you will.

Heavily tested over the course of 6 + hours winching through some of the best trail mud around and performed flawlessly. They make you Giggle when pulling through.

Yes indeed... I'm completely sold on the GP. I think my M8 is going on the chopping block so I can build one.

I've been eyeing the giggle pin stuff for a while now. Thanks to Ed I finally have some goodies headed my way. Ordered the Bow 3 motor (9 HP!) and the Albright solenoids. As well as some misc brake and bearing upgrades.

The bow 3 will be nice to see in action. Top of the pile as far as motors go I do believe.

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.
