have 88 rc with broken c.a.d and want to put locking hubs on can i do this or do i need to get a new c.a.d any info. will help. please post any info you might know really want to make Crosby Run the 31st.
Well, I have CAD and Locking Hubs, which seems to be a little weird when looking at it first, but the truck came that way. Weird, because basically the CAD locks both axle shafts together or disengages them. The manual locking hubs only allow you to lock your wheels on to the axleshaft or unlock them, so it's sort of a 2 stage locking with CAD and locking hub. At least that's how I judge it.
If you CAD is broken and permanently locked, than you have the same thing what others try to achieve by welding their CAD fork into position and locking hubs work no problem. If it's open, then locking hubs won't help you any for the 4x4, the front axle will no longer be a drive axle, but you can lock it permantely, look into the FAQs
Standing at the grill looking at the truck, the fork will move the collar to the RIGHT. In 2wd mode, the collar rides far left, on the inner axleshaft, while the rest spins freely at wheel speed. Move the TC lever, and vacuum will pull the shift fork over to the intermediate shaft, locking the two together with the collar.
