TOPIC: hello all -- need a little help with this trailer!

hello all -- need a little help with this trailer! 3 years 11 months ago #97971

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

Mastercraft SB100




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 help

Chad
