I prefer the Loc-O-matics. Erik pretty much hit the nail on the head.Todd J said:Which of these hub types is favored and why?
Sounds like it is time to order a line set ticket from Super Scouts Specialist. I would guess that yours origninally came with the single speed transfer case and someone swapped in a d20GaryB said:Okay,
Auto hubs say: Auto & Lock
LOM say : Lock & Free
Question is, I have a 78 II, yet according to the FAQ & everyone it should have Auto's, but mine say Lock & Free. I also have one of those push/pull "Front axle lock" cables on my dash that is not hooked up (I have a 2 speed Dana 20). Is there any other way to tell which one is which? My build sheet doesn't really say, at least that I can tell.
Either way, I might do the upgrade too as I plan on dropping in a full locker up front.
GaryB said:I have the original line ticket. It says Dana 20. I think the cable was there to fill a hole, as the cable doesn't leave the cab. I just want to know which hubs I got, would be nice to know in case I need to fix them.
GaryB said:Mine have a little IH symbol in the middle, that's it. That's kind of why I'm unsure of which ones I have.
GaryB said:Unless somebody changed them out along the way. I'm the 3rd owner, but since all the 2nd owner did was buy it in New Mexico and drive it here and park it, I'm more or less the real 2nd owner. This thing still has the OEM heater hoses on it!
I have never seen one with no marks other than the little IH they either say "Locking hub" or "Lock-o-matic" or "Automatic".
