Maybe a phone call to Parkliner can get you a service page for the axle or, at least, the exact axle model for your chassis and you can download something from the axle builders site???

It would be easier crawling around on my back looking myself Bob. I'll call them and/or email them if that fails. But yes, I'm sure once I i.d. it, I can find a manual. Thanks!

Not a bad idea at all, just new. Took me a few minutes to clean up so I could see. I figured it out. So now it's a question of where to find new ones.

Got under the back of the trailer towards dusk, took some good flash pics of the center of the axle from the back, kinda thought something was there, but nope. I'll try again tomorrow to see if I can find anything on it anywhere, front or back. Whatever this axle is, it should be labeled.

More soon. Evening stuff Wednesday and Thursday, but may even get home in daylight Wednesday. This weekend I think we'll hook 006 to Gail's Escape and take a little test drive someplace.

Wind damage

This is what I woke up to yesterday...



No fun. Will inventory busted stuff tonight after work, see if the company will send me replacement stuff at a reasonable cost.

Had good light this morning to look all over the front and back of the axle, nothing that gives me a clue as to what it is. It was hard to see, and I had to get to work, but I think it says 10 X 2-1/4 on the back of the brake assembly. That's very common for trailer brakes and does not help me i.d. the axle.

Frank, how do you remove the nut? do you bend the tabs on that washer?

I knew the nut had to be removable Bob, but it took a good amount of cleaning and my reading glasses to figure it out. One tab was bent out into an opening in the castle nut. With all the grease it was not readily apparent! I took a small screwdriver and bent it back up (like you see in the picture) and then had to sort of hold it in place to get the nut off.

I just emailed ParkLiner about axle i.d. We'll see how that goes.

I think some of the first Parkliner's came with Flexride axles. They have adjustable swing arms. Check out this thread and see if your axle look like this.
Eddie
Anyone have experience with Flexride axles?

Boy Eddie, great info! When I get home tonight, first thing I will do is compare pics, but just from what I was looking at this morning, I bet it is a Flexride.

And yes, certainly #006 could be considered one of the 1st ParkLiners!

Thanks again Eddie. Funny enough, I was just running that off when your post came up! Still no inner bearing or seal #s though. I'm gonna do a bit more looking.

Here's some pics...









Now that I have the seal #, everything is back together and ready to roll.

Just make sure you get a double lip seals for the E-Z lube hubs. E-trailer carries them.
