    Think it was a mistake to make it a sticky so soon.

    Help!!!
    I have set my brakes according to the pdf file on this page.
    With the handbrake set on the second notch the wheels lock forward and release backwards which is correct.
    Then on releasing the handbrake the right wheel free wheels perfectly but the left wheel rotates with friction. This friction goes away when I release the lock nuts on the spring cylinder or the brake rod at the equaliser.
    Somebody else then said to me that when I turn the tumbler up on each wheel until they don't rotate I must then set them down 9 clicks to release.
    Which I did, now when I apply the handbrake the wheels lock forward which is correct but lock backwards too.
    So there is no reverse function!!

    Henk,
    A good video but I differ from the producer in a small way. He should have kept pushing the grease through from on side only. By turning the bearing around before the grease is pushed all the way through, leaves an air gap. I know that the bearing gets warm and the grease will flow into the air gap but it's just the way I was taught during my appieship. Lessons learned the hard way

    Why do the manufacturers of trailers make the suspension so hard that the only movement there is is taken by the tyre sidewall flexing?

    Surely if you have an offroad rig it is safer to make the suspension work like the car where the shock absorbers do their work as designed to slow down the rebound and so make it safe?

    Hi Guys.


    I found this link that might be helpful to anybody wanting to build a trailer and needing proper plans. These plans will take out the guess work in selection of materials and for dimensions.

    Just pulled all the hubs off on my trailer.

    3 x bearings are rumbling and the last one failed on me, about 4yrs ago. I replaced that one myself and it is still fine.

    So moral of the story.

    Push the shells until they are home. 2 of these are not home.

    Never pull the shells home, by pulling on the nut. It WILL pit the shell.

    Never over-torque the bearing. It will build heat and that will be the end of that bearing. I believe that you torque to about 5nm. Just more than finger tight. Once it has run for a couple of km, under load, you can always go back and make sure that there is no play.

    Last but not least, make sure you use a proper high grade grease.
