    Just scored a 1981 M8274 for my 81' CJ-5! :bananatool:
    The winch is in pretty good shape but the previous owner damaged the clutch so he had the brilliant idea of "lincoln locking" the clutch keyed pinion.
    unfortunately the pinion is discontinued by warn (P/N 9054).
    Any info of were I can get a replacement?
    thanks!!

    Other than the needle in the haystack search for a NOS or used, the only option I know of is replacing the motor with the newer splined shaft version. That is a direct bolt-in and, at least for the series wound motor I purchased directly from Warn, the pinion was included. You supposedly do get a little bit of additional performance but, IMO, not really noticeable-at least not in normal operation.

    I have the old keyed motor from my 8274. The gear broke, so I had to upgrade to the newer version.

    Well I just changed the title of the thread to RESTO so let's start!!

    Previous owner thought it was a good idea to brush-paint it black so first thing i did was to completely dissasemble the winch and send the parts to the media blaster.
    Results are unbelivable!

    first removed the motor with the welded gear.

    The bad news are that the coil is damaged. Good news are that now I have an excuse for upgrading to a new 4.8HP motor. With the new motor I also solve the keyed gear problem as they come with a splined shaft.

    Next part was removing the clutch.
    You need to lift ~ 1 in. the retaining plate and pull the clutch assy.
