stuck in 4wd?
« on: Nov 10, 2005, 03:08:55 PM »
Alright, supermat asked me to post this, as he is not around a computer at the moment.  


His truck is in 2wd, and his hubs are unlocked.  However, his front driveshaft is still turning.  Ie has IFS, his front is locked, and he doesnt have dual cases, he's got a 1989 extended cab pickup, very similar to mine.  My guess is that for some reason, one or both of the hubs didnt disengage all the way :dunno:  anyone else?

Either that or he is still in 4wd.
Those would be your only 2 options.
Have him lock the hubs again and burnout, that way he can see if he is "stuck in 4wd"
If the front doesn't peel, then it is a hub problem.

pull the 10mm bolts  off and see if the hub springs out at ya, if it does its still locked... lol

could be a hub malfunction or just got stuck, work them back and forth a little see if it clicks out. Or drive it around for a few min's and stop/ twist the hub lock back and forth until it lets go.

We had that problem on bigbluewillys truck coming out of the Con, spun the driveshaft a little and cranked the hub locks back and forth a few times.

it turns out my hub was stuck like that cause the gear that is supposed to slide in and out to engage 4wd was shattered and not all of it was coming out with the spring so maybe that is what is wrong with yours.  Like shamb said to get it undone we moved the driveshaft around and turned the hub at the same tiime and it came undone

I know supermat's hubs are shot, so that is my guess.  I'm not with him, he's out fishin, and he left me a message, so I dont know all the details.  Thanks for the help :thumbs:
