Just looked at a Trillium
1300, supposed to be a '78, but more likely a '74-'75; serial number is lower than one on a known '76. The trailer appears to be in very good condition. I have a couple of questions...
How does one check a torsion bar axle
? The trailer seems to sit significantly lower than one - a '72 Trillium
1300 - I checked out a few weeks ago - that one has had the axle
replaced, and now has springs. The one I saw today is sitting level, has equal tire-to-wheel well clearance on both sides, and responds to pressure on the 'bumper'...
Can the torsion bar axles be fitted with electric brakes
? If so, I'd appreciate knowing what's involved, and having a ballpark figure for the necessary parts...
Finally, there appears to be a small crack in the frame on one side, just where it bends to go beneath the body; am I right in assuming this is the problem which is mentioned in the service bulletin,and can be corrected with the welded-on gusset?
Regards and thanks,
