i had a noise coming from left side front end.i had bought new mile marker hubs a while back ago.i decided i would try to put them in.i got the cap off and it looks nothing like what i have read about or seen.it doesnt resemble the new ones at all.do i just try and get all the old stuff out and put the new ones in? if someone can direct me to a write up on installing new hubs(not the auto hubs to manual swap,i already have manuals) i would really appreciate it.i have been looking for a long time

first, dont double post. it looks bad on you, confuses us, and make the site hard to use.

to answer your question, if you have manuals its not going to look like the auto hubs but the same principles apply: snap rings and C clips. you should also already have the spindle nuts, so all you need to do is pull the old stuff out and put the new stuff in.

Here, THIS should help? Scroll down until you see manual hubs. There is only 2 snap rings to remove and then the hub will slide out. It talks about using a puller, but you can just thread in a couple of the cap screws into the hub body to pull on those. The hub should slide out relatively easy.

i got half the hub out.should the axle,the part the hub came off of, be loose?
What do you mean by half the hub? There is only the hub cover and body. Also, what do you mean by loose? The axle should be able to move in and out about an 1/8".

Yank it out, pliers, magnet, whatever.

Sometimes the grease has parts really stuck in there and you'll have to heat them up with a propnae torch to soften the glue action of the grease.

The 4 pronged socket is to remove the wheel bearing nuts, the manual to manual hub swap alone shouldn't require it. But, since you had noise issues, you might want to check the wheel & spindle bearings while you're there. Here are some links.

Warn Premium Install -Manual to manual swap.
Wheel Bearings and Spindle Bearings
wheel bearings and swap locking hubs

These 3 threads appear to be the same auto to manual write-up, but the rest of the info is also useful. The photos are good & if you look at the manual install portion, you should see what you're looking for.
Manual Hub Swap
Changing Auto hubs to Warn Manual Hub complete instructions with pics
Install Warn manual hubs

Did you look at the link that Steve83 referred you to? He has good photos & a ton of info in the pics & captions.
