Replacing roller on boat trailer

5 posts in this topic

I think it's a '93 Spartan but I need to replace the middle roller that keeps the boat straight.

It looks like it has a shaft going through the roller and some caps on the end.

Should I just replace the roller or replace everything?

Any trick to it?

Thanks!

Just replaced mine. Go under your boat and measure the length of the roller. Then measure the best you can the shaft size. Go to Fleet Farm and pick one up.

You will need to get the boat off the trailer more than likely. Go to the lake....go fishing. When you return, get a pair of pliers and pull on the keeper on one side the roller shaft. The shaft will pull out and then remove the roller. Assembly is the exact opposite.

Good luck.

To make life easier for yourself, go to Cabela's and buy a new self centering roller. They run about $20.00. The design is such that your boat automatically center's itself everytime. I put one on my trailer and I love it! 1DIRTBALL

So I replaced the front small roller and put on the self-centering roller but I am still having a hard time getting the boat off the trailer when launching. It's hard to do by myself.

Can you guys think of anything else for me to do?

Maybe lower those 2 new rollers to try and relieve a bit of pressure?

I can post pics if it would help everyone.

Thanks!

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
