Went to drop off a new oil pan an gasket to the shop that is rebuilding my motor, saw this '42 sitting outside waiting to get worked on.

I fozzy locked the front axle.
I got a lot of mixed opinions on it ( mostly saying not to do it...)
But.... It was free! And only took a few hours. And I can still add a luchbox locker just as easily as if I didn't lock it.

So far, it's working!

That's the syringe I use to squirt little bits of oil around the place, could use a proper oil can but I don't have one of those.

Big night, got the clutch in, tranny in, 1-piece axles in. All that's left is to rebuild and bleed the rear drums (and refill fluids) and back on the road! I have a free Saturday finally, so hoping for a Saturday evening drive! Haven't driven her in a year thanks to work out of town, I'm so excited to find the next thing to fix lol

Please tell me you welded the spider gears together too right? I usually weld the spider gears together then weld the spider gears to the case. I've had them break loose before and cause some carnage if I did any less. Running my rear Dana 60 ff like that right now. Street and trail use and it's doing amazing.

No, I only filled in the side gears, to leave a little play in them.
I'm not convinced it's all that strong of a design either... But, a quick googling of "Fozzy locker" seems to show it's working for a lot of people, and I'm not doing any rock crawling, so I should be fairly easy on it.

After I get some other expenses/projects taken care of, I'll probably swap it out for an Aussie anyway

I'd just take it easy on it for now. The jarring hit of it suddenly catching can shear the teeth or at worst grenade the gears. Did that before in my bronco I used to have. Not fun at all

Will do! 90% of the time I'm in the woods around here, I don't even bother locking the hubs anyway. But I figure this will help that 10% of the time I need the extra traction.

Between the front locker, brand new 32" mud terrains, and soon to come, a winch... That should open up a lot of trails around here that I've always avoided!
