Trailer repair not going too good

6 posts in this topic

Got what was left of the hub off, and the spindle was just shot, about a quarter of the bottom was just shaved off. Unfortunatly it is welded onto the axle, so i cannot just go buy a new spindle and bolt it on. Tried putting the "good" hub on the bad side to see if it would still work, it wouldnt even fit on it anymore, gave up and tried to pull it back off, and guess what stuck to the bad spindle, yup, the "good" back bearing, though it is not so good, looked all rusty and the grease was nasty dirty brown, guess that one was about to kick the bucket too. Uggghh IF I ever get this thing on the road again I will be careful not to ignore bearing maintanece again...

Do you know a welder?
Take off the axel.

You have a few options
Cut the spindle off and have a new one welded on.

Buy a new axel.

Buy new spindles and square tubing and make your own axel.

I had a similar experience last year. I had a spindle break and had to replace the axle. Mine was an odd size, and was not available at FF, or Northern. If you are in the same situation, I would highly recommend Pioneer Rim and Wheel in Minneapolis. I got a new custom made axle with hubs, bearing, seals, etc... for just a little over $100. Good Luck!

Cyberfish,

How large a trailer is this? (How large a boat?)

Cyberfish,

I know of a guy that sells complete axles for $60/new. Includes spindles, bearings, shackles and springs.

What is the width of your trailer? He might have something for you.

I removed my axel today and am going to find a spindle hopefully and have it put on! I cannot believe I didn't think of removing the axel! I was trying to figure out how I was going to get my whole trailer somewhere to get a new spindle put on! I don't know about me sometimes! blush.gif
Thanks for your suggestions everyone! I would be a beached carp without your help, but now it is looking like I might get out on the water again soon! grin.gif

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
