    The manual hubs for 4WD low are stuck in lock position. It doesn't help to back up or go forward. The print that indicates the position is worn off and I have tried putting them in every position that I can think of, but still no luck.

Replace your auto/lock hubs with WARN manual lock hubs,this will save you hunderds.as long as you dont mind having to get out to lock in. NAPA.

    after unlocking hubs back the vehicle up for at least 20 feet and the hub should unlock unless it is toast.2 new warn hubs are cheaper than one new ford hub.

First off do you have manual hubs or auto hubs. is the stick on the floor or is it push button?? Kinda sounds like if it is manual hubs you have to lock in then they are not locking in to give that tire power, you can get new hubs from a parts store but i suggest you to get the WARN hubs do to they will last longer than stock hubs..

Automatic Locking Hubs REMOVAL & INSTALLATION The following procedure covers removal & installation only, for the hub assembly. The hub should be disassembled ONLY if overhaul is necessary. In that event, an overhaul kit will be required. Follow the instructions in the overhaul kit to rebuild the hub.
  1. Remove the capscrews and washer from the hub cap. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the automatic locking hubs 84907274.gif

  2. Remove the hub cap and spring.
  3. Remove the bearing race, bearing and retainer.
  4. Remove the keeper from the outer clutch housing.
  5. Remove the large snapring to release the locking unit. The snapring is removed by squeezing the ears of the snapring with needle-nose pliers.
  6. Remove the locking unit from the hub. You can make this job easier by threading 2 hub cap screws into the outer clutch housing and hold these to pull out the unit. To install:
  7. Wipe clean all parts and check for wear or damage.
  8. Coat all parts with the same wheel bearing grease you've used on the bearings.
  9. Position the locking unit in the hub and install the large snapring. Pull outward on the unit to make sure the snapring is fully seated in its groove.
  10. Install the keepers.
  11. Install the bearing retainer, bearing and race. Make sure that the bearing is fully pack with grease.
  12. Coat the hub cap O-ring with wheel bearing grease and install the hub cap.
  13. Install the capscrews and washers. Tighten the screws to 45 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
Manual Locking Hubs The engagement and disengagement of the hubs is a manual operation which must be performed at each hub assembly. The hubs should be placed FULLY in either Lock or Free position or damage will result. WARNING
Do not place the transfer case in either 4-wheel mode unless the hubs are in the Lock position! Locking hubs should be run in the Lock position periodically for a few miles to assure proper differential lubrication. prev.gif next.gif

Front drive shaft not fully engaged in 4WD, with truck on stands all 4 wheels do rotate but if i stop front wheels the front drive shaft is not engaged


Hi,
Do you have auto locking hubs on the front wheels, or manual locking hubs?
If you have auto locking hubs chances are they are not engaging properly and will need to be removed and spline sets checked for broken teeth on locking hub and locking shaft.
If you have manual locking hubs then check that they are firm when turning to engage them in the lock position.If they are light when engaging them to the lock position then they my have broken/worn out the locking hub and spline. Also check that the engaging spring inside the hub has enough tension to engage the hubs they may be broken. If the hub are all ok then you have a problem in the transfer box, where the 4WD lever is not meshing the transfer box properly. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Hello, I bought a 1980 land cruiser, but it does not have the picture on how to activate the 4x4 stick, can you help me pls


First thing to do is engage your front hubs. Gold colored locking mechanism in the center of the hub with arrows reading "free" and "engage" rotate the mechanism towards the engage until it stops. do this on both front hubs. Then start and let engine idle, depress the clutch and shift the short (right) shift lever to the "High" position, then shift transmission lever into 1st gear and then you will be in 4 wheel drive.

You probably have blown drive hubs. Do you have to engage the hubs at the wheels? If not and they are automatic locking and they are probably blown or seized into the unlock position. They are not too expensive to replace with manual locking hubs (My Suggestion) but the autolocking hubs are expensive. When you take the caps off the front drive spindles and try running it again you may see the axle turning inside but not the wheel. That is the best test. Wish you luck!!

Front hub to lock in to 4 wheel drive is locked and wont move. 2000 ford excursion v10 on one side only, is this a ford only part?? thanks


This is common. the locks due tend to freeze up and need either a greasing or replacement. I do suggest automatic locking hubs that you don't have to turn yourself. You can get the part almost anywhere

Grinding when turning right or left from a stopped position


Losing turning radius is normal for 4x4. The grinding can be from hidden rear emergency brakes in back of rear rotors. The front pads can make noise and the front hubs should be checked if you do decide on replacing the front brakes.

Hubs do quit working. Jack both front wheels off of the ground and lock the hubs but leave the transfer case in 2wd. If you spin one wheel the other should spin backwards. If not replace the hubs. If they do spin correctly, you may have a transfer case problem or a front chunk problem.
