    I was able to pick up a lokka locker from a member and wanted to share the locker install instructions. I was unable to find them online and fortunately got all the paperwork in the box. there is a typo on some of the pages, where it says the clearances should be between 6-20 inches :eek: its actually .006-.020, just a slight difference. hope this helps someone out.

    so I finally got around to installing the locker and heres a few things to think about before install.

    make sure you get all you gaskets, diff, axle, ect. of you forgot to order a paper gasket you can get away with using red fipg, if the paper gasket tares you can put a dab on red fipg over the tare and to good to go.

    order two of each side gear thrust washer, you may need one or two of a different thickness and you wont find out until the diff is out and your checking your pinion cross shaft clearances. one of mine was too thick so I had to grind it down and refinish it to get the correct clearances and it was a huge pain in the ass.

    check your clearances and check them again, you only want to do this once. if its too tight on the pinion cross shaft you just made yourself a spool, too loose and it will eventually shred its self. one note with the clearances if your tighter on the pinion cross shaft the locker will be quicker to lock up, looser on the tolerances will be easier to unlock and ratchet on turns.

    if you use a lot of grease like I did to assemble the locker when you do the unlock test you may find that it wont unlock. you can always pull the diff cover or third again and with a screw driver open up the side gears and cams and it should pass the unlock test no problem. I had someone listen while I drove around the lot and listen for the locker to ratchet. I expect it to unlock easier once all the grease has washed out of the teeth of the gears.

    Great advice. Lokka looks like an amazingly low-cost, economical option
