Help with rear locker

83 cj we had it sitting for about 3 months fixing little here and there things.
Now the rear passenger tire wont move forward just backwards.

We were told it has lockers but not sure. What might it be?

if you worked on anything related to the rear end such as brakes,etc. I would recheck that..if you have the entire rear end off the ground and the driveshaft out and the brakes are not stopping it then that leaves nothing except something in the rear end itself such as an axle bearing or something in the chunk itself

Didn't work on the breaks. From time to time it did that locking thing but, it would always roll again.

Thanks for the reply.

take the cover off the rear end and have someone turn the wheel forward and backward while you watch inside the chunk..if everything looks cool in there then I would check the axle bearing

Sometimes in salt water air environments the brakes will seize to the drum if the e-brake is left on. This is very common on big rigs as well when parked for more than a few days but I have seen in a number of times in smaller rigs.

If you were not working on anything else on the axle then this is most likely the case. Pull the wheel and see if a few good hits with a BFH brakes it loose.
