Snow was wet and heavy, broke not one but two drive belts for the auger on the snow blower, when I was done it was 15 out. Thanks for the YouTube subscription, I should have some interesting video on the engine swap. Glenn Lever

Good Morning, Glenn, I haven't had to take the snowblower out yet, (we use one at my MIL) so far all the snow we have gotten is very light and fluffy. actually only plowed once with the truck. Getting a little snow today, but the weather liars say it's going to warm up by the end of the week. Looking at ordering some steel or maybe the axles for the enclosed car/bike trailer project. I'm going to do something a little different this time, as before I remove the old axles I will weld on the new axle mounts on the "top" of the frame, then after the axles are installed will flip the trailer over and cut off the old axle mounts, really the trailer at this point doesn't matter which way is up as it is the same top or bottom. I will be installing a heavier duty hitch in the front so that also will be cut off.

Just replaced the axles on the dragster trailer. No youtube video on that just an update on my web site.

The hardest part of the project was getting the bolts out of the mounts (trailer was at the storage lot and the blue tipped wrench was at the house).

Good morning, our weather continues it's crazy up and down extremes. Today it's supposed to be almost 50* but heavy rain, that's bad for people near streams, because of the ice jams causing flooding, not near us though. Got the list together for the axle install now need to get with my supplier and see what the price is. It's the same triaxle setup that's under the TH , it'll keep the tonque weight down.

Terry, hope everyone avoids the floods. There has been way too much of that in that area.

Will you be able to run non-ST tires on your axle setup? 16" tires give you the option of others.

Hi Lloyd, yes I can run 16" tires as I will be using a long spring and that will give me room between the tires, I need to investigate what tires I'll run, I've always had good luck with ST tires, I have them on all my trailers, firm believer that the loads placed on them are different then when used on a powered application, but then I will be looking also at the tires that get run on semi trailers of that size too, they are made to run long distance and at higher speeds, (now that I have 300 hp, LOL)

Terry,
The 215/75x17.5 have the same diameter as the st235 tires.they are just a little wider. They are the size run on the lowboy trailers. Those are the ones that I put on my 5er.

8 hole 7000# axles with 9/16 studs. The 8000# axles are basically the same but with 5/8 studs. Also even though it is more money, I personally would consider putting on disk brakes while you are building this. You won't be disappointed.

My luck with 15" ST tires once you approach their capacity,,,,,, is life is about 3 years. They also did not take kindly to the tri-axle setup, the scrubing. We ran a tri axle 5er for 10 years, always lost the rear tires, cords breaking. Ran every brand I could find. This was with load range E.

We had LT on the toyhauler and they lasted well.

Currently ST on the stacker (tri axle) and they are lasting well. Stacker is 5000 lighter than the toyhauler with the same size tires.
