We crane launch Blue Ice so haven't had to manoeuvre the trailer on the sr that each time??.

Stone me Louise, that's cheating.........half the fun of ribbing is getting it" off and on"????????. How much does that cost you??

Anybody who has fitted conical bearings will tell you that it is dead easy to put them in the wrong way- as the outer cage is symetrical. The problem was that there was too much play and I hit the outer bearing to put it right in and overtightened the locking nut.which damaged the cage. So when moving with the boat on the trailer - the outer bearings came out, the wheel attached to the hub came off . QED.

Jonathan

and for the nth time who is this "bl*******ing" Manos?

Mmm...are you the same Eupa that criticised people who towed trailers within the legal limits of their vehicles? Yet you endanger other people's lives by your own incompetence?
Oh, and if by "conical" bearings you mean taper roller bearings, then no, the outer ring is not symetrical... stick to Mecanno or somesuch where you can't put peoples lives in danger......

Yellow card

Jono

By all means argue with Eupa if you disagree with him, but please keep it civil.

Thank you

John

I wasn't swearing at you. I think that is your middle name.

Eupa, I think you made a wee mistake and you meant to say, "Anybody who has fitted conical bearings will tell you that it is almost impossible to put them in the wrong way."

Break Back trailers all the way.. Dad uses one for his sailing boat, I believe it is the only way to go.. no wet wheels, no wet drumbrakes, no bickering to get the bl***y boat on... Just take the pin out, and hinge... boat reaches point of balance and slowly goes to water..... Same with putting the boat back on, rollers guide the nose on, the balance does the rest... REALLY easy to do one man launches, If needbe, you could launch over the end of a dock, permitting the water not being higher than say 50cm... just unhinge and the back of the trailer can go over the edge, boat will go to water slowly (That's what you have a winch for )

NO idea who supplies them in the Uk Though..... Ours is a freewheel
http://www.freewheeltrailers.com/

Cheers,
Dan.

I think you got me all wrong Jono. - I stand by my previous remarks that to tow +4000 kgs - even if in the legal capacity of the tow vehicle ( and I don't mean HGV vehicles) is asking for lot of trouble.

As you were not there when the wheel came off ( you didn even read one of my previous posts when I declared quite openly that I was testing the trailer on a deserted part of where I lived) - you really jump to conclusions as regards my competence. And as regards he conical bearings i use, its dead easy to put them in the wrong way.. I can assure you.

As it seems that you only concerned with your own blatent superiority in all matters - I will not bother in the future to reply to your vindictiveness. I would suggest that you look at yourself in the mirror......
