Default How to lock a pede trans

K I got my pede trans today and cant figure out how to lock it , I know some of ya are runnin a pede and im sure its locked , howd ya do it?? Do ya fill it w/ jb weld? Also do you gotta cut off the A-arm mounts to fit it in a tlt ?? I got it w/ them alredy cut off but it also came w/ new uncut cases , I just wanna know if I need t swap the guts or not. I got just about everything I need now except my TLT , I ordered it from Ultimate hobbies on 6/28 and they said their gunna send it out 7/15!! Great prices Horrible service! Thanks

Shoe goo's kinda rubbery , it wont break down after a while? I thought I might get some wheel hop if I lock the axles but Ill get wheel hop by locking the center diff too? I was thinking I could pull it apart and tig weld the two metal shafts but if it would be a disadvantage Ill shoe goo it. Thanks

I got jb weld but no hot glue gun so ill probably go w/ the jb weld. The way the two shafts fit together I was thinking about tig welding them together , it "should" work , Im just worried about warping from the heat. I see what yer saying about the way hot glue molds around parts better than jb weld , mabey Ill get a glue gun! Thanks
