Take your truck to a brake shop and have them look at your emergency brake at the wheel. This should be free. Something may be cause it to engage and jam the wheel. If this is any help please list it as helpful or fixya. Thank you

How do I know whether 4x4 is working?


that is part time 4wd
and i bet has manual locks on both front axle ends.
how'd i know that.???? grin
first off PT 4wd is for ICE or offroad
SO if NO ICE roads handly (i cant see you drive)
then go off road, or gravel road, or not pavement.
then shift to 4wd.
the rear will have power, for sure.
so that means how to test the front end
i do so on jack stands
put the car up on left side
engine off.
lock the front left lock and right.
now turn the left tire by hand,, bingo you cant.

if you can and the axle behind it does not spin that means the left lock is bad.
if the left axle does turns and so does the right axle , that means th right lock is bad.
3 tire on ground rules. part time.
the front drive shaft will not turn, if it does the transfer case is not in 4H or 4L. if the transfer case is working the rear drive shaft can not turn, in this test. (cuz both tires are on the ground)
see manual locking hubs test here and failure modes.

Can i manualy take it out of 4x4


Those older fords you have to put the 4x4 selector into 2H or 2 High on the floor shifter. Then go to the front tires and in the very center of the tire there will be a knob that say Locked and Unlocked. Turn the knob to unlocked on both sides. Then you will not have front wheel dragging on the drive train and only the rear wheels will be the drive tire. TO put it back in 4x4. Turn the knob back to locked on each front tire and put the truck in 4H or 4 High to get 4x4. Only use 4L or 4Low when your stuck to prevent spinning your tires with full power.


Now if your has the automatic locking hubs I would switch them out with manual ones because the automatic ones were problematic where they get stuck or not work at all. It requires replacing the locking hub assembly which isn't that hard to do.

I would probably start by removing the wheel and the drum and talking a peak. It should be pretty obvious. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

When i lock the hubs in and put it in 4wd the rear tires will go a full turn then lock up and then they go a full turn and lock up and the rear end works great when in 2wd


sounds like the gear ratio is different front and rear,tires all the same size?
If you want to check the ratio,just mark a spot on a tire ,roll the truck till the mark goes a full turn
while counting the number of times the driveshaft spins,should be the same front and rear.

88 chevy 2wd rear right tire


You didn't say what the shop checked so I may be repeating something they already looked at. Check the brake caliper and I would also drain the old brake fluid and put in new fluid. You didn't mention if it was making any noise when this happens so I'll assume it's not a problem with your wheel bearings.

OK! Front brakes not releases all the way; bad calipers or rotten insides on your flex lines (acting as a check valve holding some pressure). Rear- replace hardware and wheel cylinder,( make sure the smaller shoe is on the front halve of backing plate or it will catch and lockup.)
