i try to remember how it was before but im not sure i think when 2 wd is in use it was spinning free by hands,but im not sure..

i tryed multiple times to put 4x4 on and of i can hear the soud of somethin happening but i dont think the front end goes free.. but only rear wheels spin if i try at gravel tu push the brake and gas at the same time.

To answer one of your questions. I just went outside to check and I can turn the front drive shaft by hand when it is in 2wd.

tomorrow i have to lift front wheels up and try to give some hammer(rubber) if that helps to un lock the hubs. if not then have to drive work at low speed and take a better look the hubs.. at home i dont have much tools like the work garage.

one problem solved. i take the hub locks out off the truck and figured how those work at ford.. and it is just NOT like the owners manual says if you turn left it unlocks and turn right and they locks... or somebody has changed those...
now my front driveshaft is spinning freely if 2wd is on.

But stil the vibration of the truck remains. at speeds over 45mph it increaced if go uphills or you put some torque there.
and i think i foud a reason for that, the rear driveshaft rear crossjoint there is piece missing! rock been between there and crunch.... now have to order new joints.

Glad you figured out your problem and fixed it. Engine problems you say? Sounds like both my Fords, one thing after another.
