    Just as it says. I need the manual for Warn manual locking hubs They are the silver hubs with the black dial. Or if someone can tell me what to do after you take the lock ring off... thats where I'm stuck.

    Remove the c-clip that's on the end of the splined axle shaft. You'll need a pair of snap ring pliers to do this easily. Next, look just inside the wheel hub for a wire spring that fits into a groove that's machined into the hub, maybe 3/8's of an inch from the outer edge. Now you can pull the guts of the locking hub out. If it's an internal type hub, screw a couple of the screws that hold the dial in place, back into the hub housing and use them as handles to pull it out. [​IMG]

    there is a snap ring or 2 to deal with
    one is the snap ring in the centre on the tip of the axle shaft
    the other is the one that retains the body of the lock out
    look at these pictures, they are a Dana 60 but they should be similar. i took them a few days ago thinking about writing a how to thread on http://community.webshots.com/album/26662279MNKYdSeigu

    It says I'm not logged in.
    I have the first snap ring out but the second part is what I was stuck on... There is a ring immeaditely after the snap ring but I don't see anyway to remove it.

    I think that the ring you're seeing behind the snap ring is part of the locking hub. Don't pry on it or you may break it. [​IMG] The other ring you're looking for is hard to see. It's the same diameter as the hub housing. Slide your finger inside the edge of the hub and you should feel a ridge. That's the ring that you have to take out. A thin screwdriver can be used to persuade it out of there.

    "under" the first one?
    shouldnt be..
    have you removed the small snap ring from the axle?
    and then the large snapring around the circumference of the hub?
    after that you thread a few of the cover screws in and pull the works out.

    so the webshots link failed for you? email me or PM me about that or try this link and go to the album "warn hubs"

    Ok... it's the large ring around the inside of the hub that I did not see. Shouldn't be hard to get it out.

    That's the one! Most first timers don't see it buried under the grease in there. [​IMG]
