Default chevy auto locking hubs wiring problems

Hey I was wondering if anyone had a wiring diagram for the auto locking hubs on a 92 1500 witha 350 in it ,or could just explain it to me cause the guy who had it b4 me did a number on this truck it was horrible he had the hubs wired up with half exposed wire over the hood through the door to a toggle switch so of course the wires touch and fry all sorts of shit so after 2 weeks of work I've made my way back to this after fixing all the other stuff it wrecked.

A 4x4 posi-lock kit might be your best option. And they are pretty much trouble free.

I'm at the 2 wires comin out the front axle i was just planning on running a switch up through the firewall but right now I'm not sure which wire is for ground and which one gets power or if one gets power and the other just goes to the switch. What is a posi lock kit?

I would say it doesn't matter. its a heat element and it just needs 12 volts. add a 15 amp lighted switch so you know when its left on. don't forget a fuse or a circuit breaker in the line also

I put one on my 90 k2500 when I had it. The Factory style actuator operated sort of inconsistant. It replaces the actuator with a cable.
