Lockout hub prolems, Help

We were going from factory auto hubs to warn permium lock outs on a '93 ford ttb d44 and the inner adjustment nut (it takes a 4 prong socket) got stripped, you can tighthen the nut but loosening it is a lost cause it was susposed to be a square slot but the side to loosen it is rouned off and the 4 prong socket just slips off. we tried using a file to make them squrare again and that was a lost cause. We are thinking of just try to cut the nut off (major pita) or maybe to cut new slots with a dreml. Help, give us ideas we need to get this done quick, we want to go wheeling tomorow.

Thanks in advance,

Like Ozark said the old fashin way hammer and chisel. That is probably why they are rounded off to begin with.

Ford makes a neat racheting type lock nut assemly that rachets after the correct torque is obtained. It replace the two nuts and washer with the nipple on it. I can get a part nuber if you want.

Re: Lockout hub prolems, Help

You can have those junk rachet nuts. All they do is cause problems. I have seen them overtorqued so many times its not funny. And we all know what happens when you overtorque a wheelbearing. You still need the socket to get them off so why not just stay with what is there.
