Burning smell from front hubs
Guys, my Bronco is giving me grief again. It's a 1980 with a 351M, 3-speed auto, manual hubs.
Tonite, just for the heck of it, I locked the front hubs on my drive home, just a few blocks from my house. The roads are covered in snow and I could feel the front wheels turning.
When I got home, maybe 3 or 4 blocks max, I could smell something, almost a burning smell, coming from the front of the truck. It didn't smell like antifreeze or oil.
I'm gonna guess it has something to do with the front hubs. I don't drive this truck much at all during the summer but for the past few weeks its become my daily driver - and I haven't engaged the 4wd in a long time, though I understand you should.
Anyone have any guesses. This truck is getting really expensive and another major repair I cannot afford.
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer!
