4X4 Locking Hub

Just did ball joints on my 2003 F250 4X4. All complete but I cant get my locking hub back on the axel shaft. No matter how many times I rotate it just wont slide in?????

Although I have never replaced a Locking hub yet, Here is a good vid on the issue. Looks like a good wire brushing to remove the rust from the parts as well as air pressure to get the dust out. Just to make sure that is not causing the fit problem. After that I would use some grease to help it slide in.

I do not see any major "Key Ways" on this one but make sure those are aligned if you have them on your parts.

If still no joy, as you rotate the locking hub, you should feel it kind of drop into place in the axel shaft. I would take a rubber mallet and see if you cannot nudge it back into the shaft.

Sometimes you have to use a bar and wiggle the 4x4 shaft to center it. Then it should slide right.
