Loose track bar

Needed to order a new track bar screw and retaining nut as the one I used, became stretched and loose. Figured may as well use the factory spec ones since the 8.8 one I used didn’t work very well. Another 100 mile trip and seems to be holding much better. Guess 10.9 strength does make a small difference.

Parts were only $10.60 plus tax. One day order time from the local dealer.

Well, as you can see, Pumpkin has a matching set of shoes now. The extra set of Moab wheels I have, I’m using 2 for this. The others I’ll be using for something else later on. I was able to score a set of MTR 31’s for $10 and got them mounted for free! Guess when you spend enough money at the tire store they will do favors for you đŸ™‚

Well, after taking almost 3 yrs off this project, I’ve gotten back to it.

Ordered the 3500# axle, 60″WMS to WMS only to find that the Moab wheels won’t work without modification. So, spares will work for the time being. I’ll get back to the Moabs when the solution in my head works.  :satansmoking: Also waiting on a custom built axle tie plate. Since trailer axles are usually bolted to 1 3/4″ or 2″ springs, there is nothing out there for this application when using the factory rear springs. They happen to be 2 1/2″ wide. I found a nice little mom and pop shop close to home that will make it for me. Should be ready in a day or so.

Oil Filters

Mobile One Filters

M-204
4.000 inches Length
3.500 inches Diameter

M-301
5.000 inches Length

Oil filter study done, showing that Mobile One filters the best all around filter. The down side is price. But you do get what you pay for in life.
