Heres the prob-I tried switching all components from good side-to the new axle side and no engagement. I have a good pull @ the coil. This just doesn.t make sense. I cleaned up all roughness on coil facing and cleaned all aluminum shavings out of hub. The old assy will not work on the good side, but no big surprise there. I was able to clean up the damaged parts ok, Make the tangs stick out again on the old arm plate. This is driving me crazy. All components on the new axle side are good-what am I missing? Any help from yall would be appreciated.
Replace the 3 tab armature plate first,check the hilliard bearings,cage (especially around the tab cutout area) and spring . If hilliard assy damaged,then replace. Torque hub nut to 12 foot pounds! FORGOT to say check the strut area where the armature plate rests for damage at face of coil and strut itself.If strut is ground down and rough,then awd wont work! I've replaced several because of this. Hope its just minor OPT
