My M38A1 came with Easylok front hubs. They are set in the free position. Do I need to manually set them in the lock position to get any kind of 4 wheel drive? In other words, transferring from 2W to 4W high, should the jeep move or would I hurt anything? I would think I absolutely need to set them to lock position to go from 4W High to 4W Low.
Haven't heard of any front locking hub called Easylok. If they are a simple manual locking hub then when set in free position you do not get 4WD no matter where you put the transfer case selector. They must be in lock for 4WD.
Is Easylok a brand name or model name. Post a photo of the hub. _________________ Wes K

I googled Easylok hubs and this link you listed never came up!
1979 EasyLok Hub Brochure
March 8, 2019 • CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: Hubs.
A big thanks to Jim for finding this brochure in old box of files, then sending it my way gratis. It shows the EasyLok Hub, manufactured by the Mechanex Corp, a devision of Tenneco, out of Englewood, Colorado. You can learn a little more about the EasyLok hub’ s history in this post.
Mechanex Corp patented another hub in 1978, but I don’t recognize the hub.
Looks like they were a mid 70's to mid 80's produced no-name unit that occasionally adopted an odd relationship with better know hubs. Their main issue appeared to be quality and the rapid deterioration of the plastic parts.
