    Another way to lower an M1101/M1102

    Thanks! This trailer will have a dry weight of around 2800 pounds so I wanted some rebound damping. Might just be a mental thing on my part for wanting to keep the shocks. I have found that just about all the trailers i have picked up the shocks are blown out and not providing any damping...

    Another way to lower an M1101/M1102

    mainoffroad, For this project the M1102 is a derivative trailer (secret project?) and the way it came the tire/axle sat fairly far forward of center in the wheel well. So i moved it back slightly. I have a plan for the shocks but i have parts soaking in rust remover before i mess with shock...

    Another way to lower an M1101/M1102

    Just lowered another 1102 with this method. Pics of the cutout using a cheap jigsaw and a metal cutting blade. Worked great just have to move slowly when cutting. Used little squirts of WD40 on the blade about every 30 seconds of cutting. 4th trailer i have used this method on. Can't emphasize...

    M116A3 from Chambersburg - pull or load out?

    Just picked up and pulled two 1102 chassis trailers from PA last week over 800 miles to Missouri. Hooked up wiring adapter checked hubs often and was on my way. Had spare tires and lots of tools just in case including full wheel bearing set and seals. No temp plate. Had mag lights if needed but...

    Another way to lower an M1101/M1102

    I used a cheap jigsaw with metal blade and WD40 to make an arch cut and it worked great. Have done 3 trailers this way. The aluminum on the big vertical brace that the axle and shock are mounted to is low grade aluminum (3003?) not 6061. OD

    Another way to lower an M1101/M1102

    ChemicalSFC, I have lowered three 1102 trailers with this method and about to do a fourth. I just used a 4" angle grinder with a cutoff wheel VERY carefully to grind off the bolts to remove the brake line brackets. Its awkward but i did it. Then used a 16d nail and a hammer to knock them out...

    Wanted: M1101 M1102 Lunette hitch

    Need the hitch insert with shock, bolt, and spacers (M1101 or 1102). I figured there are a number of folks that are switching them over to ball mounts so someone should have one laying around for cheap. Thank you 🙏 OD

    MEP-903 Generator In S-805 Electronic Repair Shelter - Road To Startup

    Guess I better put up some pics or it didn’t happen... It’s kind of funny firing up the generator inside the shelter because the startup procedure using the APU has no power inside so have to use a flashlight to see the control box. Going to fix that with some DC lighting off batteries...

    Overdue Update: Took a break from the 805 and 903 project i was getting too frustrated but recently starting working on the 903B again. I have been using the shelter itself as a HAM radio and general hang out spot in my workshop since i brought it home. MEP-903B Update (Over speed light)...

    MEP-903 Generator In S-805 Electronic Repair Shelter - Road To Startup

    UPDATE: Finally was able to get the gen up and running. Unfortunately, as surplus projects go, I had a few issues and a few still to fix. Cleaned up the get set, changed the oil and filter, replaced all the soft fuel lines. Checked the radiator for coolant and didn't see any so went to top it...

    S-788 Shelter and 1102 Gen Trailer Project and 1600 Mile First Run

    Sorry guys, I didn't get a reply notification on your posts to this thread... Engele & tobys, The extra length behind the axle wasn't a major issue. It sits about 9" beyond the rear lip of the gen trailer. In my original post I mention about sway on the trip. The nice thing was i did...

    MEP-903 Generator In S-805 Electronic Repair Shelter - Road To Startup

    Cleaning would seem like a good place to start. Thinking careful compressed air and sponge bath with simple green rather than a garden hose wash? Easy to get all of the gen since it’s on a rack 2’ in the air. Ordered fuel, oil, and air filters but fuel hoses are long and rotted so figured I...

    Yea won it at Polk. That was a FREAKY drive down from St. Louis. LOL on the "mysterious" nature of the gen. I guess we will be unmasking that mystery shortly.
