Ever got your Ball's sanded in? B+M, that is......

I posted this over on another site awhile ago.


If any of you have problems with your B+M flip over ball getting stuck you can grind a few notches in the bottom that will allow the sand and crap to fall out the bottom. I've lifted my truck off the ground with the hoist in my shop and pounded the everlivinch!t out of it to get these thang's unstuck.

The problem with them is there no place for the crap to fall through, then the sand or dirt becomes mud when wet and continues to trap more stuff.

Anyhow here's a pic of what I'm talking about, Simple little mod with a grinder

The only "Tuner" in my truck, must have fell out of the wifes Tunerfish Sandwitch.

You must be a filthy filthy man. I don't ever really have trouble getting mine to flip over (the hitch, that is!). The only trouble I have on occasion is getting the brass lever to engage to lock it in place.
