My M101 trailer “repair”

When I got this trailer it was thoroughly trashed. It was so bad I thought about just scrapping the whole thing. To start off with it only had one hub. I tracked down a hub and put some good tires on it and replaced all the bearings and seals. But, it still was not road worthy. The brakes were gone and the mechanism on the tongue that engages the brakes was scrap. The internals were rusted out and broken beyond repair. So, I just parked it in the corner of the yard and tossed my scrap in it. I finally drug it up front and started working on it recently. Pictured below is what I have accomplished so far.

That big 75 pound hunk of steel is scrap. The inside is way too far gone to mess with. That trailer would have come of the hitch and killed some one had I tried to use it. I went with the ball mount because at first it appeared to be simpler. Now I am committed but I wish I used a lunette instead.

Made a little headway. This is just mocked up for now so I can drill the holes I need. I will tack it into place then pull it and finish weld it.

I have not had much time to work on this trailer lately. But I did finally pull it around front so I can weld it. I have to knock the dust off my Miller first though.
