Here it is. I dont know why so many people hate the ESOF hubs. Mine have always worked perfectly because they are well maintained :)

Granted, if they ever broke I would get some WARNs or something.

My selectors were seized and one was locked in manual. Didn't watch the entire video but hopefully he recommended soaking with a little penetrating spray. The aluminum seems to build up some corrosion. Mine were never maintained by first owner so for 200 $ I put some WARNs in. Ford wanted 250$ each. :stars

Nope. I have never had to use penetrating lube on any if the hubs I've taken off. Just a little wiggle and they come out. Never seen them corroded either. Granted I dont live in the rust belt.

I wish I would have taken pictures of them now but the selector switch for Auto/Manual was siezed in both of mine. The previous owner left one in manual so the axle was spinning all the time. They still operated but I couldn't get the selctor to turn. soaked and soaked but no good the aluminum had basically locked it and since the selector is a porous sintered part (too allow air to come in during vacuum locking) they just break when you put enough wrench on them. Yeah salt is tough on lots of stuff.
