I'd like to thank everyone who submitted a comment: David, Danny, Donna D., Jon, Paul, Rez, Dana, Carol H, and anyone who's name I missed!
While I certainly didn't mean to start a sprited discussion about the subject, I do believe I did learn something from all the messages.
I wanted to check for cracks in the frame before the Scamp
is towed to a Horse Trailer Mfg. Co. for the axle
replacement. Naturally, I'm hoping that my friend there will tell me the axle
is in great shape...but, that is doubtful on a 39 year old Scamp!
Like my old pappy used to say..if all else fails...read the directions! So I will follow the recommendations of Scamp when placing the floor jack.
