this just doesn't seem right, the guy I bought this from said the 4wd works great, so I checked and felt the trans case kick in, and then wrote it off as auto hubs as he said he hasn't used it since last winter, so get it home pull the hubs to clean them and this I found:icon_confused:

That looks like auto hub hardware to me :huh:

Been a few years since I messed with auto hubs, but manual hubs have two big nuts and a washer...you only have one big nut and a bunch of other stuff.

nope there's 2 nuts and the washer, the 2cnd is covered in grease, plus other stuff. The cam that does the locking isn't there.
I had to adjust the bearing , so I know there both there, had to use a bar to turn the rotor, and to think I drove it 70 miles to get it home, bearings ok though , probably fail before to long. I know it had to get hot.
