Hub question

Hi all, i have a strange thing going on with my hubs i think. I have a 2000 f250 7.3 4x4 that I just purchased. Lettering on hubs were worn out as far as labeled locked or unlocked so I tried to turn the axel to see what position they were in. Drivers side spun freely but passenger side did not. Both hubs were counter clockwise and turning it to lock didn't change a thing.

Figured it was a bad hub so I jacked the front drivers side up. Spun tire with both hubs unlocked and axle didn't spin. Locked hub on drivers side and axle spun. Indicating the passenger side was unlocked. Then I locked passenger side and wheel would not turn. Ok. That seems right.

Jacked up passenger side front tire with drivers side on ground and axle spins no matter if its locked or unlocked. So does this indicate the hub is good and I should look at something else or could it still be the hub. Axle spins all the time and I don't want to wear anything out. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

Do you have a Shift OnThe Fly or Manual transfer case?

Im not a 4wd expert but my understanding is as follows;

SOTF have Auto and Lock (no unlock or free) position in which case the hub will engage in either position. If you have this setup it maybe your hubs are no longr functioning correctley which is usuall the case. My truck has this setup and has been reliable until now.

Manual Tcase if memory serves has Lock and Unlock (free).

In either case to pull the "hub" all you need to is pull of the lug nut cover locate the snap ring around hub, remove snap ring, and pull out the hub (a rubber mallet maybe needed to tap is perimeter) . Its all one piece and no other pieces will fall out unless the hub is damaged.

Replacing them with aftermarket or factory is simple and you dont have to remove the wheels.
