Re: front drive shaft turning

a lot of the older frount ends ( even with the lockouts on free) still have enough friction to turn the drive shaft mine on the willys does but it does not have power to it
hope this helps , it is something to help

Re: front drive shaft turning

TWO THINGS to try,one pull lockout apart and clean real good with paint thinner,then spray with PRO LONG spray or something like that.my grease was to thick on the splines and would not completely release.two,buy a couple of extra lockout gaskets and space out the lockout a few thousands.RR

This guy just replaced the lock outs with brand new warns,but there real loose,the parts house he bought them at told him that the rubber o-ring,that seals it was worn but not to worry about it.Its slinging grease out of it,he replaced all the bearings on both sides.

A trick I have used for many years is to not grease the hub, but fill it part way with ATF. The ATF moves around as the wheel turns and won't freeze up like grease in cold weather. I also agree on the gaskets, you'll need them so the ATF won't run out, but don't add too much, just a little to keep them lubed.
