    Hey i got a 66 chevy 4x4 and i got a set of autolocker hubs that came out of a 85 chevy pickup 4x4. I was wondering if anyone knows if these hubs will fit in my 66. Also if you had a exploded diagram of these hubs i would be realy interested in looking at it. Thanks

    i dotn think they will but even if they do noone will reccomend them. these hubs can be very unreliable and have tendancys to unlock at the worst times...

    Actally this axle has a internal style of hub. I took one of those hubs out tonite and disassembled the entire thing and i dont see any reason why this hub style would work. The inner hub is to far away from the axle shaft, along with the fact that the inner hub must slide out to mesh with the outer hub. So there is no way these hubs are gona work

    Just to let u know i found a exploded view of that hub in one of my dads motors manual books.
    Thanks
