Locking Hubs, Brent @ RG, thinking logically...
Okay, I was freaking about how the locking hubs on the Tracker were not working. After a bit of cosmetic surgery, it had become #1 daily driver again.
The Pinz drove like a dream in the recent fall of snow but was developing wheel bearing problems.
The Samurai has some sort of rear axle problem...
The Tracker drove like a Camaro in the snow because one of the hubs was not engaging.
I WAS STARTING TO FREAK OUT, FOLKS.
I emailed a bunch of folks looking for a source of Tracker hubs.
Then, while sitting at my boss's desk surfing the net (don't TELL anyone!) I decided to call Brent at Roadless Gear to see if he had any.
While we chatted, he pointed out to me that often, the mechanism simply gets jammed by corosion and only needs a bit of cleaning.
Well, you can guess what happened.
Often our problems are only as difficult as we make them out to be...
Happy Holidays to all!
