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: Steering, suspension, and driveline basics. An article on how it works and where to look for problems.

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