1994 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 73000 miles
I read one of the Q& A's that said the auto lock front hubs of the Ford/Dana 35 COULD NOT be replaced with the manual hubs. I worked at Ford in Powertrain Development on the Ranger/Explorer platform for a number of years and we regularly swapped the hub sets as needed to match the transfer case - manual or electric. As long as ALL the parts are moved there were no problems. We had occassion to match a manual transfer case with auto lock hubs and as long as you stopped when shifting the floor lever into 4x4 it would engage. Ford actually packaged this on the F-series platform with a sunvisor sticker about stopping to engage. My question is can you package manual lock hubs with the electric transfer case without ending up with " little pieces" ?
