Took the Bronco out this weekend and could not get the front axle to engage. The manual hubs were locked and the front drive shaft spins but no movement on the front axle going forward. When shifted into reverse the 4 wheel drive worked.
Before I start ripping things apart I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or thoughts about what could cause this.

did you check the linkage to the transfer case and how old are the hubs?

Yes, I checked the linkage and like I mentioned it will work in reverse, just not forward. The front drive shaft turns when engaged.

the hubs are a little over a year old. With the truck on jack stands, wheels off and the hubs locked the front axle can be spun by hand and both rotors turn so it appears that the hubs are working.
