hi all. I hate to bother you all. i see some of you have a hauler that looks like a little jeep. made in benton harbor. some one borrowed mine and said they broke the starter. they finally brought it back in boxes. so i got it all put back to gether but for a couple missing parts i don't remember what they look like. the first link from the gas foot petal to the back and the next piece of the throttle linkage there but the piece that goes from the top of that flat linkage back to a lever and the lever and the last tiny little link that hooks to the carb/governor linkage. Help please. i can make anything but not sure. I think it goes from the front link and it twist around that screw and then to a lever that pivot to make it pull the lever from other side of pivot. can you take me a couple pictures of the linkage. I am in a wheelchair and that is the only way i get around the farm. so i can't wait to get it back. I should of never loaned it out but they wanted to put it in a parade. Thanks for all your help. Might post this to the group if i can remember how to do it. lol Thanks Tim E.
@bmsgaffer Brandon's not getting much response in his Sure-Trac Trailer topic, so I thought I'd separate out the tie down system part of the discussion.... Since proabably at least 75% us have and use trailers pretty regularly, what are you using to tie down? I had a particular interest, as I'm like Brandon and have just gotten a new trailer and am looking at what sort of tie down system (if any) to add to it. Just looking for some discussion points like: Who's using E-track, an alternate system or just tie down to whatever you can? How do you like your system?Would you change it if you could?If using E-track, what do you do in regards to keeping debris out of the track, or is it even a problem? Previously I've only used regular hook straps, left to right, diagonal and front to back. Just tried like hell to make sure the load made it from point A to point B, hooking straps into any solid tie down point I could find on the frame that wouldn't shift in travel.
I don't think I've shared this as I've been pretty scarce on forums since it happened.... but I pulled the trigger on a new trailer. I had the Wheel Horse two-place snowmobile trailer for several years, and while I loved it and had many fun conversations at shows while showing it off, I needed a better trailer to be able to haul to shows and for general use around the home. After long consideration regarding the need of a substantial trailer and the desire not to let this collectible un-restored metal trailer sit outside and degrade in another Minnesota winter I decided it was time. I'd have loved to be able to justify keeping both, but it wasn't a good fit for me. I never officially advertised it for sale publicly, but had told a couple people I was considering letting it go. There was one collector whom I knew was legitimately interested in making an offer if I was ever ready to let it go. We agreed on a price and one of my prize pieces headed for a new home. If he ever decides to speak up on it, I'll leave that up to him, but know that it is in good hands and will be meticulously restored, I have no doubt. This picture really highlights just how small even the two place snowmobile trailer is. With that part of the deal done, I began seriously looking for it's replacement. I wasn't in a hurry as show season was over and I didn't have any immediate hauling needs. It was likely going to just sit in the driveway over winter anyway. I had some bad experiences with a couple dealers along the way, but eventually landed with this 14 foot PJ Trailer built how I wanted. They had trailers in production, and I was able to get a change order done specifically I was able to get the bi-fold gate, removable stake pocket spare tire carrier and color I wanted. Sides are completely removable so if I need to run just the flat deck, I can. I like that because the trailer's stability isn't dependent on the sides keeping it from being wobbly like a lot of them you see. Pretty happy with this, it pulls nice and smooth. Looking forward to some nice trips to shows with it!
