70's vintage 8000 lbs Warn winch

Guys, I have been saving this old 70's model 8000 lbs Warn winch for just the right truck. Any tricks to bolting it up to the winch bumper? And does it matter if the cable comes off the top or bottom of the spool?

Joel

What model is it? Most Warns bolt to a plate from the bottom as do most other makers unless you have a 7284 and that will bolt to the face of the plate but is the fastest winch Warn ever and still makes.

All the winches I've had or seen have had the cables come out of the bottom. You should be able to tell when you let it out or real it in. I have used battery cables to check if the winch works. So you could do that to see wich way the cable reals up.

There will be four bolt holes on the bottom of the winch. Just use some grade 8 bolts that fit and bolt to the bumper. Power cable goes to battery, find a good ground spot and you are good.

I think I would bolt it to a lot more than the bumper, well in less you don't like your bumper, and get yourself a ****** block to go with it. It will have a lot more pulling power with it. If you really get stuck I mean deep or in a place where you may have to drag your truck out it will really help there as a 8000# is really a light winch for one of these trucks.

Here is a pic of the winch and winch bumper from the 76 F250 that I bought in 1983, sold the truck but kept the set up to put on every other truck I owned, at present it sits on my 79 supercab, notice how the brush guard has the cut outs/protectors for the turn signals on the top and the headlights on the bottom, to correlate to the 76 model year. The cable comes off the bottom, if I remeber right it is a model #8274, it has been very faithful over the years. I also have the same model w/ a different bumper set up from my 74 crew cab.

Lucky you have that winch. I have a '70 highboy, and the push bumper even has a plate welded on where it looks like a winch once was, winches come in pretty handy
