20' of Royal Excelene 3/0 cable. Designed to run from the battery ground / pos to the winch solenoid pack. I've looked at using commercial heavy-wall tinned copper lugs, but it looks like crimped, soldered, and flattened copper tubing is actually the best for serious current.

I had bought some audio cable off ebay that ended up being CCA, which I deemed not appropriate.

Nice write up ! I love these old winches and building them up is one of my hobby's . I have been putting the warn 9.5 XP motors on these when we go thru them . Really nice upgrade and can be had on Amazon for pretty cheap .

Thanks again guys

Ed - question for you - do you run your 8274 with the solenoid pack under the bonnet or mounted on the winch motor?

If you put it under the bonnet, where do you put it? As the picture shows, I have precious little room available. At first glance, the only place the solenoid pack will fit is next to the washer bottle.

Get rid of the Warn box. Get a single Albright contactor(if you don't already have one) and you can mount it almost anywhere. Its pretty small.


You can remote mount the plug to your grill, bumper, whatever. Or run in-cab controls. Or have both, like me.

Good point Brett. I can definitely just run the old solenoid box up front until they give up the ghost and then switch to the albright at a later date.

Second the Albright pack, it fits in the factory spot with slight modifications and is such a better solenoid than the factory four.

I use the Albrights I ship in about 30 a year up here . It's the only solution to a dependable winch .
I put them on the ends of the motor or under bonnet . Depends on the situation .

I'd recommend getting the Albright before you NEED it.
Its a D1, but here's how i mounted my Albright.


Remote plug above the Hella in the grill.

If people want to mount the Albright on the end of the motor GP make custom motor mounting bolts to do that... Might as well fit some upgraded internals too 😃

When I rebuilt my M12000, I used a Warn Contactor kit. Although it's a little overpriced, it made for a nice and sharp installation and has been super reliable.

It's not, just the angle. Probably at least an inch clearance.

I now have a Superwinch 90-14452 on order. This is the Albright DC88P copy with center-to-center mount spacing of 3.40". The 8274 motor mount bolts have a 3.43-3.50" spacing so all that should be required to mount the contactor directly onto the winch motor are two 0.75" spacers, longer motor mount bolt/studs.

The motor length is approximately 5.9-6" with apparently 1/4"-20 threads. So I need studs that are at least 7 inches long. Probably using stainless now.

I also looked at the Warn 34971 but I don't see the point.

Waiting for my 4/0 terminal lugs to come in.

The switch is a carling two-position momentary (up - winch out, down - winch in)

Going for a Gigglepin-style end-of-motor mount. Stainless adjusting studs are extra length to fit an upgraded 9.5xp motor if my prestolite ever dies.
