Can't turn hub locks
I have a 2002 F350 4x4. The hub auto lock works but from what I understand the wheels have to turn two revolutions before they will lock up. Not knowing this a few weeks back I had backed down a hill to retrieve a tree I cut up. When I tried to get up the hill it would not lock into four wheel. I tried to turn the manual locks but they would not turn.
My question is, if I spray them with liquid wrench or something similar can I try to turn them with a little force. Maybe with a set of pliers?
I have read Guzzle's explanation about cleaning and lubing but it looks like he has not figured out how to free up the manual lock. <http://www.guzzle7pt3.com/allube.php>
