I have owned my fourtrak for about 6 months and with the snow decided to try 4 wheel drive. What a shock! I locked the hubs pressed the 4H button and set off. The steering was really heavy and when accelerating it was almost like torque steering and pulled to the left. The car was really flighty skipping from side to side. There was also a strange clicking sound from the left front. Is this normal? Also do I need to lock the hubs for 4H as I would have thought the gearbox provided the drive, so can I not just press the button and ignore the locking the hubs. And one final question which has mystified me for ages, next to the bonnet support bar is a long quite sturdy bit of metal which is squared off one end and has a hook the other, I would love to know what it is for?
Thanks in advance
