Will a lockout hub release under pressure?
This is another of those projects I bought the parts for years ago and never got around to doing. I've got Summers Bros. full floater rear axles and bought the lockout hubs to fit. I normally just park the Jeep with the tranny in gear, the e-brake on the Caddy rear disc conversion doesn't work very well. If I were on a hill and somebody came along and turned knob, would the Jeep roll off. Looks to me like it would remain engaged if it were under pressure.
No, I'm not the eternal pessimist, just realistic about human nature. I figure if enough people see lockout hubs on the rear of a Jeep, one of them is going to have to turn them to see if they are functional.
