  1. Hey,,,,,,just a guess.....When in gear.....see if you can see if both or one axle is turning,,,,a key-way in the hub might be the culprit...if you find tht is it,,,, Don't knock the hub off,,,,it might break,,,,,,,in stead,,,use a hub puller,,,,check back in a while.....off today......and other Horsemen are going to chime in,... Good crowd here. lots of help.... Howard 857 Horse in Va
