In 10 days I'm off to collect a 1960
tandem axle trailer. It needs rims and tires and I have a set on my 1961
Overlander which I think share the same bolt pattern so that's OK, I'll just take them with me.
..Still it's going to be a 2500 Km trip back to base so I want to feel OK about towing her and I don't want new axles just yet as I'll be going with a totally new custom chassis during the shell off process.
I try and plan ahead and have booked the new purchase in with a shop near the pick up location but thought it can't hurt to be prepared with bearings and brake shoes etc just so I can get out of town without too much of a delay. I don't have any experience with Vintage axles, bearings and brakes as I had them updated on the Overlander before I even picked her up. So I guess I'm really asking if anyone would know part numbers or descriptions for the bearings, shoes etc maybe even "bearing buddies" that I could take down? Maybe they're such a standard part that I'm over thinking the whole enchilada but figure if I don't ask I'll only find out too late. I don't even know if it's got torsion axles or leaf so any advice would be great!
