manuel hubs and turn knob
I just purchased a 2001 F250 4x4, read through manuel, and I still have a question about engaging 4wd.
This truck has manuel locking hubs and a knob selection for 2wd, 4H, and 4L. Previous owner said Ford did this to please old timers that wanted manuel locking hubs. He said I did not need to lock them in and only needed to use knob.
Reading through manuel, I see no information on this. Manuel address either manueal with a gear shifter, or knob inside, but not both.
Previous owner also said if knob did not engage 4wd, just get out and lock the hubs.
Anyone familiar with this set-up and how it works. It seems 4wd once engaged without locking hubs and another time it did not engage until I locked the hubs.
Thanks for the help.
