    35 splin Warn Hub Problem \"Ground the ends,still hits\"

    When I unlock my hubs to the free position it locks into place. When I drive to my destination it has moved to the midway point toward the locked position. It has done this several times. I pulled the hub and the stub shaft is making contact with the hub dial. Warn said I need to cut some off the stub shaft /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gifI said bullshit since stores are selling this set up (35 spline kit) I have seen no report or instructions that say you need to modify anything. Whats the deal here Hub Part # 62672, Spicer stub

    Re: 35 splin Warn Hub Problem

    <font color="green"> Which hubs do you have, the one with the set screw or the one that's meant for the front axles? There is apparantly a mod to fix this problem if you have the set screw axles, it involves pulling the set screw and putting a ball and spring in there so that the hub has a detent at either setting, just like the normal front hubs. </font>

    I have heard that if you rotate the hubs side to side that this problem will sometimes cure the problem.

    By doing that it seems you would only be trying the wear the hub dial evenly. I don't get that /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Re: 35 splin Warn Hub Problem

    From what I have been told is that sometimes the small differences in casting thickness between 2 different hubs can give the axleshaft enough clearence to not rub the dial and turn it. I have heard that it works sometimes, and sometimes not. Worth a shot. Hubs are an easy thing to switch around.

    Re: 35 splin Warn Hub Problem

    I would assume you have the snap ring installed correct? How much does the stub stick past the snap ring/hub face? Lastly, did you install all of the seals on your stub shaft - they might keep the stub pushed in towards the carrier and keep the snap ring tight to the face of the hub. Just some ideas. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    <font color="green"> Good point, the bronze/plastic thrust bushing on the yoke end of the stub comes to mind in particular, if that was forgotten then the stub could work it's way out when you drive in a straight line for long periods of time. </font>

    It has been sometime since I put it together but I do remember The Bronze thick ring being there. There is another seal in the SBK3 kit that I will check to verify. I hope its there /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I was in a hurry to build them. I will check that

    Let us know if that works. Tis what I was talking about on the phone mate!

    I got some duct tape you can use to keep the dial from spinning.

    Re: 35 splin Warn Hub Problem

    Okay pulled both sides and put the grinder to both axles. All the seals were good and in the right place. After grinding the ends I then put everything back together and when i reach behind the caliper and grab the axle(at the joint) i can pull it in and out and I can still see it make contact with the dial!!!!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gifAny and all ideas are welcome /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Re: 35 splin Warn Hub Problem \"Ground the ends,still hits\"

    Kieth, I had the same problem...and with your front lockright you need to get it fixed ASAP. I talked to Stephen Watson and he said to try swapping the dials side to side. Only the dails, not the hub body. I did it and it worked until the next time I took it apart (to install my gears). Then the problem came back. The constant ratcheting wore the teeth down on my lockright to the point where it wouldn't hold. I cured the problem by installing a dial from a 30 sp set of warn prems (38826 I think). Try it and let me know how it works. Trust me..you are better of running both of them locked than just one.

    Depdog confirmed his warn premiums with the set screw have contact too. This is the or will be the cause of a broken hub on the trail. If you run 35's check to see if your stub hits the hub. You can grab the u-joint and slide it in(toward the diff) then out (toward the hub) you will see the hub dial move if it does hit or hear it.
