I'm getting really frustrated with these auto hubs. NEED HELP!

Ok, I've posted a few threads about my auto hubs and my confusion and thinking they were stuck locked. The owners manual says they lock to the left and auto right. The words and arrows are worn off. I took both hubs off today and took them all apart and regreased them. When I put them back on with the both front wheels off the ground truck off in 2wd in park. When I would lock the hubs, spinning one tire would spin the other and the driveshaft. When in auto just the tire I was spinning would be the only thing to move. So I went out to some muddy grass, with the esof in 2wd the truck would peel out with the hubs flipped both ways. When I switched to 4x4 it worked with the hubs both way, switching back from 4x4 to 2wd worked just fine with the hubs in either direction. So this tells me that the auto is working fine, which is good, but when I got home I jacked the front of the truck back up it was different. With the tuck off in 2wd in park again and both wheels in the air, no matter which way the hubs were turned just that wheel would turn along with the driveshaft. WTF is that? Why would it be different from before I left? Basically I know my auto 4x4 is obviously working but I want to be sure I'm not driving arround with my hubs locked all the time. At first I thought that my hubs switch opposite or something but I'm just getting more confused even as I'm typing this. Someone please help. Thanks.

link wouldn't work for me thanks anyways. I think what would help me the most is if someone elese with a 99-04 esof that works properly lets me know what theirs does with the truck jacked up like mine, what spins and what doesn't with the hubs either way.

leave the truck on the ground. with the truck in 2wd and both hubs turned counter clockwise crawl under and you should be able to turn both front axle shafts.

Wow this is so stupid, you guys and the pdf is saying counter clockwise is auto. look at the picture I just took of my owners manual. its saying lock is counter clockwise. since the words and arrows are wore off my hubs I assumed the owners manual would be correct and I went by that, so I had my hubs clockwise thinking they were in auto but stuck. wow.


Why the hell would Ford make the picture backwards????
