    Power Train (?) hub approx 66 kb

    These are the hubs that came on my d60. I thought they were auto hubs at first glance, but they are obviously part time.
    Anyone ever heard of these things before?
    I want to eventually go with 35 spline outers so I'd like to use these until I'm ready, then get the 35 spline Warns.

    I saw some similar to those on ebay once. I think they were calling them Selectro hubs.

    I think Selectro is a milemarker brand or something like that.
    I've never seen these before.
    Does anyone else have an idea?

    I've never heard of the Power Train brand name before, but they do look somewhat like the Selectro hubs. Since you have 'em, you might as well use 'em! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif There have been quite a few variations in locking hubs over the years. I had a set on a '62 Willys Wagon that had two parts that had to be turned with a screwdriver to lock them in. I've seen others that have a pair of levers on each hub to lock 'em in. Strange stuff... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I've got a set exactly like those in a box!

    I got them off my old '84 K30 and replaced them for some Warns.

    I took the Power Train hubs to the local body shop and glass beaded all the parts, including the knobs. Now they sit in the Warn box looking like brand new hubs. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Those Powertrains are the same thing as the Selectros. Same hub, different name.

    I have some similar ones on my D44 and they are B&M.
    I did a search and couldn't find anything like them.
    I like them easy to engage even with gloves on, or greasy hands.

    Yup, These were made by Milemarker (same as Selectro's) for a company called Certified Power Train Specialists.

    I worked for Certified Power Train back in the 80's at the Minneapolis location. They were a Dana-Spicer parts distributor (axles, transmissions, custom drivelines, fluid power transmission, etc.) and they also stocked ring&pinions, hubs, NP203 conversion kits and just about anything else you could think of. Mostly, they sold to jobbers around the area but if someone came walking in the front door with some cash we were more than happy to sell them something. I remember someone talking about these. If I recall, they said they had them made in the 70's.

    The company used to be owned by a grumpy old fart named Hardy Morningstar. I'm sure he is gone by now but it looks like the company is still in business. If you have one of these stores in your city, give them a call when you have a real %^%# of a driveline problem. They have (or at least they did have) some great drivetrain folks that could find or fix just about anything.

    On the Power Train hubs I have, there is a broken part on one side. Can I still get replacement parts for these hubs? I need to take a pic of the broken part. Hopefully I can get a replacement.
