    Frank8003 - RIP

    Dang that‘s a shame…I also benefited from his sales & PIF deals. Plus I enjoyed reading his posts, he had a wealth of useful knowledge & I was appreciative of his willingness to share so willingly with us. Rest In Peace, sir….you’ll be missed.

    M915 or M920 wanted

    Wes (simp5782) was just telling me about a change in the eBay app that allows him to receive messages from buyers but does not allow him to reply directly…. So it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to him on this forum, he’ll reply as soon as he has time to.

    M200A1 Wheel Bearings

    The dual-tired M105 trailer in pics above is mine. I just added stock M35 wheels & 9.00 tires. The overall width (outside sidewall to outside sidewall) is just shy of 104 inches, so YES, it is over width. I used it to move & store 4 multifuel takeout engines, and it is still storing them next...

    My apologies; I must have misread or misunderstood…didn’t meant to derail your thread.

    Steering shaft - stripped threads - what size die to recut?

    OR, get a new nut slightly smaller & accompanying die and go from there. (Since you mentioned that the previous threads were stripped out and left a smooth shaft…why not just cut new threads slightly smaller and use a new nut that fits them? With a little anti-seize applied of course…)

    Girlfriend in the next town

    Females tend to get friendlier with the more money you throw at them…I’m sure this one is no different. It’s just a matter of money: how friendly & affectionate do you want her to be?

    M1070 Low Power Issue, resolved

    I get most of my Detroit parts from Powerline Components in Wyoming; they’ve always come through for me, especially if you ask Sales for Joe. Be sure to have your engine model number & serial number handy, in order to be able to get the right parts…unless you can verify the exact part number...

    Inflating tube tires with lock ring wheels

    I have broken down tube tires mostly with a duckbill hammer and tire spoons. For the stubborn ones where the rust & ancient rubber bead have fused and wouldn’t move with any hammering, I pushed the tire/wheel under my flatbed equipment trailer and used a hydraulic bottle jack to break the beads...

    M105A2 Axle Spec/replacement suggestions

    How about an Electric-Over-Hydraulic controller (12-volt)? That way you could use a standard trailer plug to tow it…the hydraulic brakes are pretty effective on these trailers. As stated in other threads, you can get 6-lug Budd wheels in other, smaller sizes to use modern tubeless radial tires...
