Hub Lock-Outs? (Drive Flanges)

Hey Guys.

Does anyone have the part numbers of the axle lockout parts that replace a hub. I was thinking that it would be alot easier to carry these as a spare than a whole hub assembly. Or even to replace the entire hub assembly with them and say good-bye to my current hubs.

Heres a couple of pics to show the parts that I mean

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

I thought that was a 2wd axle. No? So is that a full time locked hub or something. I would suspect not very common.

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

Those are called drive flanges and rock crawlers use them because they are a lot stronger than a standard hub. I have no idea of where to get them, nor have I ever seen a set on a Samurai up here. Jeeps used to have them, but they will have a different bolt pattern.

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

I believe they came on some Canadian Samuris. If memory serves me, young Anton was selling some awhile back. If he doesn't have any, he probably has a source for them.

No, those are definitely not 2wd hubs. The 2wd hubs are flat because they don't have axle shafts that stick out.
As Farther said they were standard equipment on some Zuks sold in Canada instead of locking hubs.

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

It's an "automatic" hub. There's a simple cam mechanism inside that locks itself under torque - so as soon as you shift into 4x mode, it locks up. Convenient, but nowhere near the strenght of a manual hub IMHO. I've had them on my ex-87 (Canadian, eh [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] ) and they became a major selling point - the guy was amazed with 'em, haaahahhaaaa

No, I don't know the part number. My sugestion would be to replace it with manuals.... it should be a direct bolt-on swap.

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

??? err no, no cam, no 'auto' anything. its a flat disk, w/ 6 bolt holes for the hub, and a splined center hole that accepts the 1/2 shaft. yes, they're full time. they seem to have been quite common on the SJ410's here, but I dont know if the center hole will accept Samurai shafts or not.

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

My Zuk seems to be one of the only ones around where I live with MANUAL hubs. All the rest that I have seen, except one, have these AUTO hubs. I thought that they are always locked and there is just no freewheel option? They are definately not from a 2WD, as I have never seen a 2WD sammi.

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

What Wanderer said is right they are not auto hubs, but they are from a 4wd. They have the same effect as a manual hub that is locked all the time, but a lot simpler.

Thanks guys I thought someone may by chance have the parts #s in the sami parts bible. I'll just have to keep ringing up the wrecking yards, and guys parting out there zuks to see if I can hunt them down.

Re: Hub Lock-Outs?

my blue Hardtop had a set of these lock-outs when I bought it. After trading for a set of manual hubs, I noticed a huge increase in mileage, less vibration on the highway and a big increase in top speed. The lock-outs let everything in the front axle and the driveshaft spin while the truck is in motion. In short, I'm glad they're not on my truck anymore. I am however using them for trail back-up pieces in case I ever blow a hub.
