Never Seen Hubs like this before?
I brought home the newest addition to my Jeep family today and I have never seen this type of hub before. The Jeep is a 1976 CJ7 with a DANA 30 front axle. I wish I had a digital camera for this, as it would be easy. Here goes a description.
It is a 6 bolt hub and has two turning handles to lock each hub in 4WD. You pull the handles out and flip them around to lock the hub. On one side of the handle, it says free and on the other side, it says lock. What kind of hub is this and are they any good? I also went and looked at a 64 CJ5 today and it had the same kind of hubs.
I have the 5 bolt hub's and was wondering if I could use the parts off this to convert to 6 bolt hub's on my 83 CJ7. The 76 is a parts Jeep only and could never be restored. Therefore, I would like to put these parts to use first.
