This might help:
Trailer & Caravan parts, Alko & Knott brake exploded diagrams - Western Towing - Exeter, Torbay, Newton Abbot, Devon

There should be rotation arrows on the autoreverse shoe assembly too.

Absolutely. If someone's already converted it to uk spec they've saved you a few quid!

Single axle US trailers are usually well overpec'd comparatively, so I'm sure you've no worries. We used to get caught out with the uk width restrictions, but since they've upped the allowance most are now within legal requirements.

hi Trailer Guy
got to say it looks a good trailer and strong, brakes bearing and seals now sorted just got to sort the setting up of the brakes and cables and of i go. so far i have adjusted the bolt on the back of the drum so that the pads were just starting to grip the drum,backed them off so wheels were free again, then connected cables to bracket, took up some slack and hand brake works well. that's it so far . was thinking of buying a wash kit these any good ?
