Question 99 250 4x4 help

So my 99 is my first with lockin hubs and a switch inside so i have some questions cause i dont know if its in 4wd or 2wd.

Which ways do the hubs go if its 2wd clockwise or counter clockwise?

And the way for 4wd as well?

And what is the proper way to lock in 2high 4high and 4low?

And anything else you think i should know?

Thank you

For the hubs, lefty loosey (unlocked), righty tighty (locked). If they are the factory automatic hubs, when in the left position, they *should* automatically lock when the truck is kicked into 4x4. But, that system gets old and is known to fail, so if you have issues with that, then you need to manually lock your hubs in when you need 4x4. You can go between 2high and 4x4 high at any speed up to 55 MPH. To get from 4 high in or out of 4 low, you need to be stopped with the truck in neutral.
