Sorry if this question sounds basic but I am new to
Jeeps and I am just getting my feet wet when it comes
to working on my own vehicles. I have the following
questions/problems with a Jeep I just bought and would
appreciate any feedback. I have also done a seach on
Quadratrac and have found some helpfull info but I
need a little more detail on the following questions.
Fist off it is a 1977 mostly stock CJ7, 304, auto,
quadratrac with front locking hubs.
1.When I have front hubs unlocked and the emergency
switch in the glovebox turned to the off position the
vehicle acts like it is in neutral. Why is this?
2.When I have the front hubs unlocked and the emergency
switch in the ON position, it drives fine. I have read
that I should only lock one hub when I do this, why is
3.When I have the Hubs LOCKED and the emergency switch
off it seems to be in neutral once again.?????
4.When I have the Hubs LOCKED and the emergency switch on
it seems to work fine but I get a LOUD CLUNK sound
coming from the transfer case every once in awhile? Is
my chain slipping? If so why would it not make that
sound when the hubs are unlocked and in 2wd mode?
If anyone can explain how the whole emergency switch and
locking hubs thing works I would appreciate it.
Also if there are any Jeepers in the Detroit, Michigan area
that would like to take a newbie under there wing email me
at [email protected]
and maybe we can meet up and
do some off roading.
