    seems to be a warn 5687, took the motor to a starter shop and was told it was toast. anyone know where to find a replacement motor? don't use one enough to justify buying a new winch.

    The electric motor on the "Belleview" winch can be rebuilt. That is what most folks do when it wears out.

    Good tech on the Belleview here: http://www.ih8mud.com/tech/warn5687.php

    Word on the street is it is a very good winch, but it has a very fast line speed, and some folks don't like that.

    I would sink whatever into that unit.. a Warn winch is always better than the others out there, especially the old ones.

    I have the 8000lb version of this winch on the front of my Scout. It has model #8000 on it. The predicessor to the 8274. I bought it in 1988 fot $150 complete with the bumper, it was facoty offa '72 Scout. I love the thing, it pulls like a champ. Probably the best deal I ever made.

    I once pulled out an F250 4x4 that was sunk up to the frame in lake bottom mud. Only when it came up out of there did I realize how big that thing was with it's giant lift kit and tires

    Funny how the winch that made Warn famos wasn't even designed by Warn. Bellview Machine designed it and was later bought out by Warn
