bonehead of the day

I just recently got my zook on the road and finally worked out the bugs so I'm laughing! after an hour of cruisin around I come to a stop at the lights when suddenly I feel a vibration from the front end .The vibration felt kinda like faulty water pipes when you turn your faucet . the vibration went away above 5 miles but then it would get noisy I checked the zook over, the clutch, the brakes , you name it I checked it, I put my hand over the front diff and almost burnt my hand! what!? turns out I left my left hub in the locked position the whole time! with the luck i've been having lately I'm sure the diff blew before the hub did - bummer!

I dont see how it would get that hot? I at one time, never unlocked my hubs, unless there was something wrong beforehand.

Re: bonehead of the day

It shouldn't have got hot. Check your fluid level. If you have your pinion at to steep of an angle it might not be getting any gear fluid. I drive all the time with my hubs locked. It is no different than the new trucks that are full time four wheel drive or even the newer Jeeps. One hub stays locked up all the time.

Re: bonehead of the day
