    It would be nice if he said what spline or year they're supposed to fit. They look like pure gold to me! :D

    Did it say anything in the add about the "fishing string" modification?


    The only place that I have seen these lock outs were on drum brake axles, the knobs were wound up tight with fishing line, and were inoperative.



    Novelty at best.

    Yeah they are definetly course spline hubs. They came stock on my 55 with drum brakes. Not that I will ever take the 55 offroad to really find out if they can take some abuse. It would be nice to know the history of them.
