Another one to add to the Mollers list of calamitous cock-ups.
Last time out with the VM I detected a touch of bearing rumble. About time for a new set me thinks. £100 later, I have a bag full of Timko's finest. Dan who works with me is a highly qualified Merc Tech,he fits the lot.
As I've somehow managed to have missed this summer, I promised Mrs M and the youngest of the brood a day out with lunch on the beach as the forecast was fair.
Off I goes, trailer running as sweet as, half a mile from the slip I detect resistance coming from the trailer. I then start to here rumbling, I pull over. To my horror, all four bearings had collapsed!
One wheel was all but off. Shit, what do I do? I sat Mrs M in the back of the truck and told here to keep an eye on the wheels, slowly I proceed. On entering the dinghy park the rear N/S came off. On backing into the water, the rear O/S came off, two wheels left on my wagon.
I parked the sorry looking trailer and had a pleasant day out. Just had a call from Dan who had inspected the trailer, "Ah, sorry mate, I think that I may've put the outer bearings in the wrong way around."
Guess what Dan is doing tomorrow?
