Hi,

I am going to convert to manual hubs on mine, as the auto ones are annoying me.

Im not sure what to do with the vac and actuator system - do i leave it locked or unlocked or does it make no difference with manual hubs?

dont think l200's ever came with auto hubs, just fixed flanges and used the vac system instead.. so what are you asking?


in freewheel mode nothing in your diff moves so doesnt matter 1 bit what you do with the vac system

Yes, sorry by auto hubs I mean the standard locked ones,

Does the front actuator need to stay locked or unlocked, I am going to unplug the whole vac system so it is not used, only the hubs so I think the front actuator should be locked at all times?

yes disconnect all vac and the front diff will auto lock up,  if you disconnect the plug down by the vacuum can, the flashy light will stop too.

remember, even with hubs in 4 and diff locked, if the stick is still in 2H you will still be in 2H....  basically the vac systems pointless Grin
