4x4 hubs

I have a 95 f350 and today I went to put my truck in 4hi today and my front hubs never locked in. I have access to a parts truck that has warn premium lock outs that I can get for free. Now since I'm pulling everything off an existing truck with the lockouts do I still have to buy a nut kit for the auto to manual conversion? Correct me If I'm wrong I don't fully know how the auto hubs work either but don't they activate by vaccum of is that just the superdutys? If so where are the vaccum lines so I could check those to make sure those still are good until I can swap manuals in. Thanks for looking hope you guys can post me in the right dorection

How do the front hubs lock in then if they're automatic?

soehow when you shift the t case into 4x4 either high or low and then move forward/backwards they lock/unlock. when you engage 4x4 with the t case the axle shaft spin inside the hub and lock the hubs, how exactly i don't understand

When you lock the t-case in and the front axles start to turn, then hubs lock when they start to rotate. I had a 95 that originally came with auto hubs. The original owner swapped to manuals without the nut kit. Needless to say, I replaced the hubs because the nut and lock ring came loose and destroyed the inside.

I have had good luck with my autos, but if you can get a solid set of Warn hubs for free I would jump on it. I don't think any kit is necessary as I have seen several Dana 60 rebuild write ups where people have gone from autos to lockers and vice verse.
