Electric Locker

I have an electric locker, for my bronco D44, that I bought off a guy recently. It is a Detroit Trutrac with a ring on it with wires and a coil to make it a full locker. At first I was told it was an electrac, but those have actuators on the cover. This is fully contained and the only thing coming out of the cover are 2 wires. It has the part numbers 52062 and 5f04 scribed into it. Anyone have any idea what it is??

Were there different versions of the Electrac? It looks like a spring is missing from the coil ring. One that returns the arm and unlocks the unit. SO I need a new spring, new ring assembly or have to source the parts to convert it to the cover style.

No idea. I have never owned one, just remember when they were introduced. Check Eaton's website.

Someone posted their contact info on here. I'll probably call them tomorrow. Hopefully I can get the spring I need. If not, I'd almost bet that the unit itself is the same as the version with the external actuator in the cover... Maybe I could find someone with one blown up to sell the left over parts.

Well I just got off the phone with Eaton. Apparently it's a prototype that was never sold to the public. He was very surprised to hear I had it. Flat out told me no parts were available for it or the other model electrac. So basically if I want the electrics to work, then I have to fab something up. Making a wave spring should prove fun.
