I'm new to the forum, and if this is not the right place for my post, please admin advise and move.
I am trying to get my dad's 1962
? Bambi back to Illinois from Utah.
My first option was to rent a U-Haul 24' truck, and tow the Bambi behind.
But, the trailer has not been used in 20 years, and I am having tail light issues.
One side works, but the other...someone sealed the red housing with heavy silicone bead, and I had a hell of a time cutting and removing it. I guess that was supposed to keep the moisture out? Inside was a totally corroded area.
I was able to get the small bulb out, but the main one broke off, leaving the base in the socket. I took both bulbs to the trailer store, and he said he had nothing for the small one, but did have the large one. I plan to try and remove the bulb housing from the socket, clean with emery cloth, and see if it works.
I have had the axle bearings and seals redone, and new tires.
Another option to move it and my belongings is to hire a tractor trailer with the Bambi inside. He wants to know the length from the ball joint to the bumper, and the width. Can anyone supply that information?
