Hello

My parents located some of the original literature for this motor which is excellent to have on-hand.

Trailer spindles too short

Depending on how old your trailer is there are what is known as long and short spindles and hubs. The measurement from where the seal rides to the end of the threads are different along with the hub. That is interesting, the trailer is from 72 and was built by my grandfather. We have a pair of the ...

Trailer spindles too short

Hey Jim, that was my first thought. I installed the races with my bench vise and pressed them in with the races from the old bearings, so I'm fairly confident that they are fully seated. I wasn't wild about removing the hubs after I had greased them all...haha I did have the same issue on both sides...

Trailer spindles too short

Hi All, I worked through pulling both hubs, cleaning out old grease, new double lip seal along with repacked bearings. I noticed that when I disassembled there was no washer between outer bearing and castle nut. I ordered a pair and started to reassemble. With the washer installed, I can barely get ...

New bunks and bunk wrap

Hi All,
Has anyone ever used the UHMW Polyethylene material for bunk slides? You can find it on McMaster-Carr for reasonable prices and it has a slippery surface by design.

Trailer shocks

Hi All, I also have a trailer with shocks & coil springs. I'm told my grandpa build it in early 70's when he retired. It's got a single beam running the length and then splits at the end to form a "T" shape. Below is a pic of the shock/coil arrangement. The axle seems similar to ones I've seen for H...

Hello Enwez,
your post was incredibly helpful. Not only did I find the only 3.5" LED light that is available, but I was able to grab one on Amazon for $9, so it was cheap too!

I ordered my harness, lights, and heat shrink tubing to get the wiring done! I will post pictures once I have it updated.

I think the woodys ones will work perfectly! I’ve been looking for a while and that is the firs 3.5” set I’ve seen. They are sending me dimensions tomorrow to confirm. The grommets ones would be perfect, but they are all for hole sizes greater than 4”, the lens dia is 4”. Sent from my iPhone using T...
