Thanks for the advise guys. I guess I'll crack her open and see how she looks inside. I have one too many projects and no bumper to use it on, so not sure how quickly I'll get to it. But will at least prepare.

Follow-up Post:

I can't tell from all these threads on it, but if I just want to crack it open for a peek at the condition (or lack of) oil and do an oil change before running it, can I just remove the 3 allen screws and separate the casing without any further disassembly?

BTW, for anyone looking for one of these, I see there is one for sale for $700 in CA right now. Guy says one year old and used 4 times!

Yep, just those 3 big allen screws. It takes 6 oz. of non detergent 30 weight motor oil. I always added just a little bit more than that. When you crack it open you will see why it is wise to run these winches once a month. If not done the top end dries out.

I would have to double check which link or links mention it, but while you have the case off i have read that would be a good time to add a drain and or fill plug. A vague 2cents but something to be aware of.

Yes if I go down the rebuild route I'll see if I can add a drain plug. Someone already added a filler plug.

Depending on what she looks like inside, and how she operates on the bench, I may not rebuild it right now.

Since I've already hijacked this thread and it's on topic, when I cracked mine open it had been low to empty of oil with water in it and the gears were rusting so I decided it needed a full rebuild. It looks like the main gear sat in water at the bottom and is rather badly corroded. Am I looking for trouble putting this back in?

A new replacement is a bit pricey. I'm worried these damaged teeth will have their ends disintegrate and then chew up the other gears.

I would run it as is. Of course, that advice is not of very much use to anyone.

Hehe, this didn't start cheap if you consider I could have bought a brand new 9k superwinch for less. In for penny in for a pound I guess. I see a good looking used main gear on eBay.

Hi William,

No, the 8274 and Belview winch parts are not interchangable.

Depends on what parts. I have seen bellviews updated to 8274 motors.

I don't know. $200 seems fair if it is complete and works.

If you need parts for a Bellview winch contact 4 Wheel Drive Center in St. Louis Park, MN. 952-927-8811 or 800-328-4445. John has rebuilt motors and some of the popular parts manufactured for resale.
