Ibuildembig They are not missing, the drum is just turned

Rubicon2 Anyone else notice it is missing mounting feet on one side? Looks like they broke off or something in the first picture.

Gary2 Its a good winch but keep in mind being thats a heavy one .You are dealling with a lightly sprung , already nose heavey TJ . I prefer staying as light as possible . Synthetic wire rope took off a fair amount of weight and using an OE bumper saved me some more Vs a heavy aftermarket bumper which I have no use for either.

Ibuildembig You can totally rebuild it for less than 200 bucks easily.

Person claims to have never hooked it up so does not know if it works or not. Looks to be in a shed with alot of random auto parts. I am assuming it needs a little work since there is some lovely green buildup on the solenoids

I noticed that, thus my failure to believe the "unknown" about the working vs not working. But, it seems like most of the parts are available.

Is there anything I should be looking at upon inspection if they get back to me.

Ibuildembig Its an 80's model....I would buy it

They are pretty easy to totally rebuild, and all the parts are available. They are the fastest winch ever made, and nearly indestructable.....btw, they are way underrated too

Eyeing a Warn 8274

From what I understand these are good winches and pretty nearly impossible to actually kill, but I'm not very familiar with winches and was wondering if this looked like it would be a hard rebuild and what it would likely take to bring it back to function. The seller says they haven't tested it at all, but not 100% sure thats ture. But... it looks um... well, it looks like this:
