Leading arm

I want to replace my leading arm axle on my 75 Boler. After a few email exchanges with dexter I am told no one makes leading arm axles anymore. So I will go trailing. Right now I am trying to decipher his email of drawings. Wish me luck.

Be advised, that I am no expert, but my understanding is that, a leading arm axle can be adapted from a trailing arm axle. Just reverse the brakes. That is install the left brake on the right arm, which will be the left arm when in the leading arm configuration. Visa versa for the right brake.

Ah no, you flip the axle 180 degrees, then swap the brake hubs. If you REALLY want an axle built for an early Boler Gina, you can check with Paul and see if he'll ship one to the US: Fibreglass RV Parts, Repairs, and Service by Paul Neumeister
