Electric Locking Hub

Before everyone says don't waste your time, that it is worthless to research. I am simply looking for some tech on these. I have seen them on some of the Prados etc.. I would love to find some good picks, a parts break down, possibly a cutaway etc... I have found an exploded view in an FSM but that is all that I can find. If anyone has a good explanation/description of these, I would greatly appreciate being pointed in that direction. Thank You!

The knuckle and splindle are specific with wires going through the spindle, the spindle has two copper tracks for the hub brushes riding on the back side, the hub incorporates a tiny electric motor that rotates the gear on lockout taking care of turning the internal engagement dial. They could be handy but in the real world they suck reliabilitywise. Search on offroadexpress.co.nz Clintnz has a writeup or at least some pics on how he converted those to manual actuation IIRC.

Awesome! I will shoot him an e-mail. I am trying to see exactly how these work to see if the design can be improved and possibly applicable to other things. Thank you all!

Thanks George, we do have a swack of adapters for manual hubs, second run on these was very precise and install is easy.
