Want to say hello to everyone and say that this site is a wealth of info!!
Found an old trailer out at my family farm and my dad told me he acquired it from a friend of his many many years ago and it had been sitting out there asked him if i could have it for my kayaks, sure no problems would be happy to see it being put to use !!
I hauled it out and gave it a look over, I looked like a home made trailer but there was a data tag on it
The fenders were shot and i didnt need the rollers and winch so off it goes
Pulled it back home and got busy prepping it
Got most things primed and ready for paint
I have everything except the main tube painted a satin black
I'm on the hunt for the hat bushings for the springs and the axle but im just having a hard time locating them what came out of the springs are marked with HARRIS 850 and the axle bushings are stuck in there and i am trying to get them out
From what i remember when i took measurement ( Im at work ) the spring bushing length is 1.75" long for both sides( there were 2 bushings on each side - totla of 4 bushings ) and the hat diammeter is 0.869" inside spring diameter is 0.869" and the inside of the bushing is 0.499"
Next is the axel length I think it is 3 inches long and 1 inch in diameter it still has the 2 part hubs and they seem ok but i would rather put a 4 lug wheel and hub for the " just incase i have a flat " ( which i already have from a fathers day present ) but the hubs are about a half in to 3/4 in too long which sucks
Any one seen this kind of trailer or did a retrofit on the hubs
thanks for the info ill have to track them down. Still working on the hubs and repainting this project.
I have so many little projects to work on I have to make the circle back to it
Thanks again for the info !!
