    Not to hijack the thread but does anyone know where to get those lifting U-Bolts, or maybe have the dimensions of the stock units? I just bought a M101A3 and all 4 are missing. If someone could post the dimensions I could try and locate a set that might be close to stock.
    Unfortunately I think the stock units are a bit beefier than what I might be able to find but I’m still searching. I’m one to, for the most part, have things as they were meant to be but I’m having a hard time locating replacements. I’ve searched eBay, etc and can’t seem to locate them. Also searching for a replacement Data Plate but I’m thinking the A3 plates have not yet been released to surplus (if that’s a thing)?

    Yep, I could do that. Still have most of the other brackets. There's ever a big plate that I think acted like a shield for the tank that was still on the trailer when I got it. (The tank had already been removed, but the plate remained).

    Stabilizer Leg Update... For anyone following this thread, I have been working on the stabilizer leg for my M101A2 Trailer. I finally had to mount my stabilizer leg to my backhoe trailer. Once I had it mounted, I was able to use a pipe wrench to unscrew the leg from the housing. It took a long time and with the aid of a "Torque Multiplier (aka: Cheater Bar) I was able to get the adjustable leg section to move. After about two hours, I had the adjustable leg in my hand. Here is what I found out: The adjustable portion (lower leg) of the stabilizer is approximately 16 inches long and is 1.25" OD Pipe. The very top of the adjustable leg has an unknown TPI threaded insert that is approximately .75" thick. The rest of the tube (adjustable leg) is hollow. The non-adjustable portion of the stabilizer leg is made of a 1.25" internal diameter pipe. Inside this non-adjustable portion is a long piece of threaded rod with an unknown TPI. The adjustable leg screws onto the threaded rod mounted in the non-adjustable section of the stabilizer system.

    The lower leg section tightly fits into the upper section. There is very little clearance between the two pieces. I imagine the tight clearance is designed to keep out dirt and debris. However, this narrow clearance makes it very difficult to get any lubrication in between the two pieces. I think I might drill a small hole near the bottom of the adjustable section so that I can periodically inject some oil, hoping that keep the threaded rod lubricated. Your thoughts?

    I seem to remember some of the legs had a lube point. If not, then drill a hole and give it a shot of lube every now and then. Cant hurt.

    Both mine have a grease zert installed middle of leg.
    Came from Military that way.

    Put in too much grease and it will squirt out when adjusting leg.
