The benefits of unlocking hubs for normal road use are mainly found in increased fuel efficiency.

Also, since locking hubs generally do not require a key to operate, they can be maliciously locked or unlocked by persons other than the vehicle owner. Retrieved from ” https: Other benefits also include keeping the front-differential free from unnecessary wear, quieter operation, less vibration, and lower wear in other drive line components.

The hub 24s0 a component where the wheel is directly mounted to, and is outside the axle.

I can see them working in, say, a Crossmax hub with that weird adjustable sideload thing they do. In some other vehicles, automatic locking hubs are used which, as the name implies, engage automatically when 4WD is desired.

Locking hubs

majual Anything I should check? The main advantage is that the driver does not need to leave the vehicle to connect the wheels to the axle. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. And freehub barely moves when QR is locked.


The advantage to mechanical hubs is that they are often considered more robust, and less prone to issues due to maintenance negligence. Posted 2 years ago.

DT Swiss – s Classic

Thinking about it a bit more — angular bearings suspect does make sense, but these should not block the freehub from moving when under load. Tonight assembled the wheel together, everything looks good and spins nicely when in my hands.

For reference, schematics are here: Thready thingy would only go in one way, so could not get it in wrong way in. This might not be possible if the vehicle gets completely stuck before the hubs have been engaged, meaning automatic hubs require more caution on the driver’s part. Got them into bike frame, pulled tight the quick release and the wheel does not really spin anymore.

Also, in some axle designs such as those used on older Land Roversthe top swivel bearing can become starved for lubrication which is normally supplied by oil slung up by the rotating axleunless the hubs are locked manuaal few hundred miles.

There should be almost no gap between freehub and hub body. The disadvantage of this is that the driver needs to get out of the vehicle to activate the hubs. However, many manufacturers list engaging the hubs even in 2WD mode for several miles a month to lubricate the front drive train as part of the vehicle’s regular maintenance schedule. Well, it does, but stiffly — I can hear how it spins and it does not spin for long.

Nonk confirms the same issue. As soon as I release the quick release — no friction and wheel spins forever, even with freehub clicking. This is done to reduce the mechanical resistance of the front-portion of the drivetrain when four-wheel drive is not in use. How would I check if the seal is recessed? I did miss it the first time, but the freehub would not spin without it at all. Could it be due to the new bearings?

Northwind Flat washer over the bearing and and under the ratchet thready thing — it is present. The cylindrical spacer is present. And the freehub is as close to the hub body as it was possible. Looking on this image: Also the freehub does not rotate as well. The seal 24s sticking out from the hub body for about 0.
