ok, so thursday morning -maybe Friday, I'm not sure yet- I am leaving to drive the 1,300 mile trip to our ranch in Montana. Once there i will be doing some light wheeling, and taking a trip up to canada. This weekend I repacked the bearings, replaced the inner axle oil seal, and changed my diff and transfer case fluids. (The transmission fluid was changed about 8 months and 15,00 miles ago) Oil was also changed 2 weeks ago. Tomorrow I will adjust the valves once everything is back together. Does anyone have any other suggestions of things I may want to check before I go? I read that it is going to be in the high 90's low 100's throughout Nevada and southern Utah. So the LC will be working hard. Also when I was putting my hubs back in, I think I put something back together wrong in the locking mechanism, because my hubs arent fully unlocking now, even though the dial is pointing to "free" when I turn the wheel the driveshaft still spins. So yeah...any suggestions??

:cheers:

the spring inside the hub is probably not connected to the clutch so when you release it it does not back it off and it remains engaged...
