Got a 72 cj 5 w warn lock o matic hubs. I've seen some info online, but can't find any parts. Warn discontinued making them a long time ago. Anyone know about these hubs?

There are a couple of good articles and there is usually a couple of guys with spare parts.

Had a pair on a Jeep pick-up years ago. They worked pretty good until you put a load on them then would slip. I always ran them locked because of that. They have roller bearings that grab when the axle spins faster than the wheel.

Overgreasing could cause that. A thin coat of grease is all that's required although I believe the factory reccommended manually locking the hubs for heavy pulling, anyway. I had a set of Lock-O-Matics on an earlier Jeep and have the later Warn Automatic on my present Jeep. The difference between the two is in the manual lock mechanism. I like them, they've been very trouble free. Warn discontinued those a number of years ago. I believe Herm The Overdrive Guy in Brush Prairie, WA., bought out the parts inventory from Warn.
