Body Damage is Cool
Put a small bead of RTV around the edge of the hub just before the O ring to seal it against the hub mounting flange. This will help seal out water and dirt. This helps a lot!

Also you will want to pull them off at least once a year to grease them.

You should also do this after any deep water crossing.

It is important that you disconnect the vacuum solenoid once the manual hubs are installed. This will prevent dirt and water from entering the hub area when in 4H and 4L.

It's a simple operation. Follow the vacuum line from the driver's side fender. It should go up behind the air filter and meet with the vacuum line from the passenger side. At that point you should see the vacuum solenoid with the electrical connector coming up from the bottom. Pull off the connector and tape it back. That's all that's needed.

Need a Spot
Axw Man, Thanks for all your very good information, but my problem is the opposite to all above. I do not need the 4WD more than a couple of times a year, so have not missed it until recently noticing a broken vacume line above RH wheel. Traced it and figured it was for 4WD. Got some new hose and replaced it. Now the thing wants to lock in front wheels when in 2H, with some crunching type noise. Stopped that and experimented with it by rocking car back and forth by hand. With engine off, shafts were stationary. Start motor (gearbox in neutral) and rock, both shafts rotate forward and back as they should in 4WD. Pull new hose off and both shafts stationery. Plug engine end of hose to RH wheel and LH shaft rotates forward and back so LH hub locked in while RH shaft counter rotates so front diff works. With motor running and transfer case in H2, connect hose and can hear hub lock in. I guess the question is - is there a problem with the solenoid, or does the vacume need to be connected in a special way to fix it. Since then, I have been just running RWD with hose off. Any help will be Great. PS, do not really want to change to manual hubs.
Thanks. SandraK
