Sears brand locking hubs

While perusing the junkyard today, I found an old Willys Overland frame & running gear that appeared to be about a late '50's to mid '60's wagon. On it, there were a pair of Sears brand locking hubs that were complete & operational. I picked them up because I had never seen them before. I didn't take any pics yet, but they look like the hub in this picture I found.

It looked like a Dana 25 axle to me, but I'm not as fluent on the older stuff as I hope to be someday.

Has anybody else seen these models recently? Any info about them would be much appreciated.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

The Sears hub lock outs were Selectros if I remember correctly. Mile Marker bought the remaining stock to sell but I don't think they make them.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

If you happen to use them, be gentle. They use an alloy ramp which has a bad habit of splitting.
