    I don't think hubs were a "stock" option??
    I think that those are aftermarket.
    I think the drive flanges were stock.
    I had "cutlass" hubs on mine when I got it. Used a big flat tip screwdriver to lock/unlock IIRC.
    How do those work??

    They shouldn't be that hard to turn.

    Quite easy to operate in my past experience with them.

    However you can look around here or E-bay and buy a set of drive flanges (cheap!) or another set of hubs. Most likely Warn Premiums but there are others.

    Those look like Dualmatic hubs, and I owned a pair until last month. They should function similarly to the Warns. The levers should be wedged in place...do they disengage at inopportune moments? I'm just saying...don't fix it if it ain't broke. If it's broke, what in particular isn't functioning?

    Yes, drive flanges are stock. Hubs were a dealer installed option until sometime in the mid-late '70s.

    I expect your hubs will work better if you take them apart, clean and lubricate.

    Yup, Dualmatic hubs, aftermarket. If you take them apart and clean them up you'll find a detent ball and spring that locks into an indention on the lever. It common for corrosion to cause these to become sticky and not want to stay locked. Disassemble 'em, clean 'em up and lube 'em and they should work fine. If you just don't like them then check out E-bay and various other sources for other types of hubs. You might do a search on locking hubs here about opinions/experiences of different brands/types. Good luck. Nickmil.
