Greetings PaducahCat!

I think the same band of heavy snow hit us on its way across the Ohio River to you. My '64 Overlander is also languishing below a new coating of snow . . . . .


It looks like we may be making up for our mild winter experienced last year . . .

Kevin

Hey overlander64! I meant to tell u I checked around and we have a dexter axle dealer in Paducah. They gave me a rough estimate on cost of new axles. Around 500 a piece. Didnt sound too bad to me considering that includes everything but wheels and tires, even electric brakes.he said if I wanted disc brakes that I could order a kit just as cheap as he could. He also gave me the name of an installer that will travel to your house for installation.

Yes, that is a good price . . . that is very little more than what I was quoted for axles without the hubs and drums. It looks like I am probably about a year out from the point where I will be able to get the new axles that my Overlander needs. Fortunately, I had a new axle installed on the Minuet in 2005 so it is good for traveling well into the future.

Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin

Well I made another big step today toward the restoration. I called and talked to Colin Hyde today and ordered new axles for the '64 Overlander. Man I'm excited and what a nice guy Colin is. I called about ordering axles and he wanted to talk about other aspects of my trailer and what I was going to do in other areas. Just wanted to give him a shout out and say thanks for making that part of the process so easy and comfortable.

Someone was wintering in the underbelly. Squirrel? Who knows. The white paint I put on there when I was attempting to make some minor floor repairs til I realized how bad of shape the whole floor really was.

More pics of the frame after I removed the rotting floor. The third pic is the old black tank.

The hitch area looks pretty rough but after some cleaning with a cup brush the metal underneath is in great shape. I took all the Load leveling attachments off and sandblasted them as well. Like new.

The first two pics still has one of the old axles on it so I could transport it to the garage where I could finish up the frame cleaning, sealing, and installing of the new axles. That's my dad helping me out.

It looks like you have a "Classic" clamp-on Reese Dual Cam Sway Control Hitch. I have the same setup on my Overland and Minuet . . . I am sure that you will find it easy to configure and a joy to tow with under any conditions.

Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin

We welded these pieces onto the frame to use as lift points with our chain hoist. Worked pretty good. Only negative was we had to cut them off and grind everything smooth and then repaint the areas.
