4x4 won't work
I have just gotten a 1985 Ford Ranger 4x4. The transfer case will engage to 4wd but the hubs are manual. I tried turning them like you suppose to and thinking the wheel was engage but it wasn't...thus leaving me stuck.
I later checked to see what the problem was... I put the transfer case in N and turned the front driveshaft....both axle shafts were moving. So I am thinking the hub locks are gone.
I went to the parts store and they only sell the whole hub assembly with the lock in it itself. LIKE WTF?
Can't I just buy regular hub locks or what like on a regular truck instead of the whole hub assembly?
