    Hi, I would like to "rebuild" my original Lock-O-Matic hubs for my 79 Scout II.
    The nylon friction shoe ring that sits on the drag shoe nut is broken into pieces on one of the hubs.

    I would love to be able to get these back on again. Any idea how to get a replacement?

    you’ll need to either purchase a used hublock assy and salvage the shoes from it or get a different hublock. One person was thinking about 3D printing them.

    I made a mistake, I have automatic hubs and not lock-o-matic. This became clear to me when I looked at the pictures Eric van Buren posted many years ago to explain the differences between the different hub styles. I have the teethed shims of wich one is broken so I could use one of those too.

    That hub is one of those things I wished that they reproduced. My 77 came from the factory with them, but I never saw them.

    Thanks for the offer, I'm in The Netherlands. But as stated in an earlier post I made a misstake, I have automatic hubs. I know parts are interchangeable.

    Funny story though about the friction shoes being "unobtanium", I connected with a group of Scout onwers here in The Netherlands and I visited one of them to pick-up a turn signal lens. We were talking about our scouts when he mentioned he was rebuilding a pair of hubs out of a bunch of them. So I asked him if he had the friction shoes. He pulls out a pack of brand spanking new friction shoe kit in an original IH service kit package unopened! He was unwilling to part with it but would see if he has another pack. I'm amazed what people are hoarding...:clap:

    I was wasting time on eBay yesterday. There are a lot of listings for IH locking hubs and even some service/rebuild kits. Not sure if any of them are the type you need though.

    Are those made from nylon? Delrin?

    I don't know what Delrin is. But I think I read somewhere that it was nylon.
