Daniel, FYI, I also posted the same info and photos here on Mud in this thread: https://forum.ih8mud.com/winching-recovery/485518-wiring-8274-albright.html
I sent Warn an email so hopefully they might have some insight on the specs.
I've have a few questions for you about your contact solenoids. I own a M8000 and it is about 15 years old. It has sat for the last 7 years. I just took it apart, replaced the seals and re-greased it. Also had it re-powder coated. It looks like new. I did telephone Warn tech(s) during this rebuild and found them to be very helpful.
So my solenoid or switch is now bad. Can't get it to work. I bypassed the two and the motor will spin out and in. The solenoid is so old I'm thinking about just replacing it. The switch I have is only a three wire switch. I know I will need a new switch #83665 if I purchase part #83664.
I see part #83664 is the new replacement solenoid for the M8000. Is this a contact solenoid? Is there any data, spec, or tech information? What country is this manufactured in? I have heard rumors that it may be manufactured by Albright Company for Warn, any truth to this?
I was also looking at part #34971. Is there any data, spec, or tech information? What country is this manufactured in? I have heard rumors that it may be manufactured by Albright Company for Warn, any truth to this? Does it meet the specifications of an Albright DC88P.
Should I be cautious about purchasing Warn parts thruogh online sites, such as Amazon and this listing.. Amazon.com: WARN 34971 Contractor, 12V, SW, W/FACTOR Y Bracket: Automotive
Just exploring options here. I looked at some online forums for some ideas and knowledge and there seems to be a lot of speculation about various parts that can be adapted to function as replacement contact solenoids. Here is one interesting thread on https://forum.ih8mud.com/winching-recovery/464180-warn-8274-winch-solenoid.html
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Yeah, same license plates and same user name there as here.Lee, that was your thread I just posted? I thought it might be with the plates but wasn't positive.
No sweat. I had mine made at the NAPA auto parts store closest to me, but it's a small-town, old-fashioned place that still does stuff like make cables to any length from any gauge you want.Thanks for sending me a pm. Where did you get your wires made up for the Albright? I went to a couple local auto part shops and neither had wire making capabilities.
