Cliff, I'm not an experienced welder, but I do have one and use it on stuff when I need to. I do have a friend who is a great welder and in the Steam Fitters Union . I haven't done a frame up restoration on anything, but if I did and got down to the frame and it looked pretty bad. I would consider building a new one made from galvanized steel , if it wasn't too much money. You may save a lot of time working on that old steel. You wouldn't have to worry about that frame ever again. Just a foolish thought. Tim

Man I had to read the whole thread. I enjoyed it all. I would love to take on a project like that. I remodel houses on occasion just for some thing to do. A trailer would be a lot easier on an old fart.

How did the elk hunting go Larry?

You mean the "Camping with a gun"? Good time--- but, Elk are scare in South Eastern WA... So, it was a good trip. But always enjoyable with good friends...

Great photos Larry, it looks a lot like Wyoming. I know what you mean, it is fun to go with friends or family, the hunting is just an excuse.

Larry,
Do you still have the measurements for the straight axle? I need to replace mine after the fun of the past June in KY (lost wheel bearing), and never liked the drop axle.

Don
Don-- all I did was measure the dropped one when I had it out on the floor- for overall width, then found the center, measured the spring center bolt spacing, and grabbed a chunk of square tubing and started welding, drilling, etc. I used my left over spindles from my old scamp axle as I wanted 4 hole wheels.

Tell you what, I shall measure the axle Friday (gotta make a mad dash to Tacoma tommorrow to pick up an extra engine) and post the measurements. Larry

(on a side note, by raising the trailer 4 inches, you may find a difference in the handling characteristics. The CJ seems to bobble a little at 70+ mph now. If I was to pull all the time, I think I would add some shocks)

Another Compact Jr

We just got ours about four months ago & will be at the Lake Casitas affair with the total rebuild complete -- we hope.

Don--- I finally got the measurements for you--- sorry it took so long. The CJ axle is 57" wide from wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface and the holes for the spring center bolts are 38 1/4" center to center. Hope this helps. Larry

Thanks Larry, that is just what I needed...now I don't have to jack CJ up and get Deb to hold the end of tape... We are both getting too old for that kind of thing!!
