Lock Right Locker won't engage!?!?
I just installed a "Lunch box" type Lock Right locker in my C8.25. I have done 3 before and had no issues. I installed the locker per the Owners/install manual that it came with. I use 85/140w oil to quiet down the ratcheting sound that they make. After the install was completed, I put my Jeep in drive. It wouldn't move. It makes a slight grinding noise as if you are in a standard shift vehicle and missed a gear, just not as loud. As I press on the gas, I hear the gear and locker assembly spinning however the locker is not engaging and will not propel the Jeep forward or rearward for that matter. I took it completely apart and checked every part and piece for damage. There was none. So again I re-installed it and got the same results. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I suppose it could be possible but, i check the part numbers and they match to the Lock Right website list. I bought it at a local 4x4 shop. I asked them, and they say it looks right. I brought them the carrier and all other parts and the assembled it on a bench to make sure it was correct. I then brought it home and re-installed everything. It just spins. Very frustrating. Thanks for the thoughts. I really do appreciate it. I ask Lock right tech line and they were all but useless. I call my local Jeep dealer and got the same results.
I just read about a guy with a similar problem. He mentioned that he used bearing grease instead of axle grease on his locker components. could that really be the issue? I may have used bearing grease as well. I am not at my garage but, I think that is infact what I used. Bearing grease.
