4x4 shifting problem

Hi there I am a new Power stroke owner and have a question about the 4x4 on my 04 F350 6.0L

I can shift from the dash switch with my hubs locked in to 4x4 lo, and it seems to work, but when I switch to Hi it just clicks at the hub like its turning but not engaged.

2nd question

if I change the hubs to manual only will the dash switch still engage the 4x4 hi/lo

Re: 4x4 shifting problem

welcome to PSN.

yes, if you switch the front locking hubs from auto to manual lockers, the 4 wheel drive switch on the dash will still change the transfer case, but you will now have to get out and lock the hubs.

you will also have to cap off the vacuum lines going to the front hubs otherwise you will have a vacuum leak and your heater/AC/Defroster controls will no longer work

owner of almost to many fords.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
