    I have one that came with the 69 and the guy said it stopped working, someone has been foolin with it, solinoids removed and such.
    When I grouned the case and put power to the arm. terminal it started winding up, what do I need to do to see if it spools out?
    It seems to be ok other than needing new solinoids and rewired.

    You have to have 4 solenoids for POWER out.

    Poke around BillaVista's tech stuff over on Pirate4x4.com He did a VERY extensive teardown and rebuild of an 8274. Should be some good info there. :cool1:

    Ron, look here:

    The brown, green and light blue are coming from the backside of the remote plug. There should also be a ground wire coming off the bottom side of the control pack base to the threaded hole on the bottom side of the motor. If you do not have a remote, rig up a test remote using some lengths of wire and a ON/OFF/ON toggle switch. If you need any other info, call my cell anytime after 5:30pm, if you don't have it, you can get it from shannon.

    I used dead soft copper tube, beat flat, for the bussbars on the DB's winch relays.

    Could be the extra pair of relays were used to drive the winch relay pairs. I did this on the DB wiring b/c the self-coiling cord I used had really small wires. Smaller than I felt I could run event relay activation current thru.
