I bought a 2001 Ford F-250 and on the right side hub there is an arrow pointing forward which I did. On the left side there is no arrow and the hub was already in the forward position. So the right wheel was originally pointing back and the left pointing forward. I am very uneducated about this and am trying to lock it into four wheel drive. I would assume that both hubs should be turned to the same direction. I did that and put it in 4 wheel drive but am unsure about why the two hubs were locked in different directions. Can you please help me out with this.
I just couldn't figure out why the right hub was turned to the right and has an arrow there that said to lock in that direction. Nothing on the left wheel and it was turned counterclockwise so I turned them both to the front of the rig is that what you are telling me. I told you I don't know anything about it and I don't want to damage the truck
I don't think you will have to worry about damaging anything. The most you'll have a problem with is not engaging 4x4 all the way.
I'm not specificly telling you to turn them towards the front. If you turn the passanger side clockwise, which is towards the front, you'd want to turn the drivers side clockwise which is towards the back.
Make sure you turn them in the same direction.

I did what you said. I have the arrow on the passenger side and it was clockwise so I did the same thing on the driver's side clockwise and everything is locked in, and I took it out in the snow and it is working great. Thanks again for your help
I contacted a lot of people that were supposed to know about these kind of things and I finally did what you are saying between you and the previous helper I have it locked up. Thanks very much for your help.
