My manual Front wheel hubs comes automatic in!
I have recently installed manual front wheel hubs on my '89 Samurai. (for saving some fuel and maintenance on the front drive shaft etc)
But i have a problem:
when i disengage them (set to unlock, free) and I drive with my sam on the highwag sometime, the hub will engage itself (to lock). Off course, because the drive shaft was before not rotating, it make noise because the wheel is rotating fast and the driveshaft not.
That's not good for the spline's of the manual hub
I think that the problem is because you can set it so easy from free(unlock) to lock, most other hubs are stiffer, there is more hand power needed to change the wheel hub from unlock to lock.
Can i on someway make it turn a little bit harder?
Is this because the manual hubs are new (approx 5 months now)?
Did i installed them incorrectly or are there some srews for adjusting the friction for the rotating knob?
I want to fix this problem, because it's irriting my a lot!
Beyond you can see some pics of my sam
and off course one is a shot of the **** front wheel hubs!
