UPDATE: Recapping I recently purchased a '83 scamp
that I was wondering if it had brakes
? Well it does sorta ...the brake housing is there and so is the wiring (almost) thanks to cell phones w/cameras: https://www.flickr.com/photos/goathiker/15414444274/
...you can see the blue & red wires go nowhere!! ...they just stop short of being hooked to the brake backing plate. Why is anyone's guess?
So my challenge now assuming the axle is still good (based on the prestine condition of the rest of this trailer it should be) is to determine the correct shoe size and magnet assembly and order some parts. Plus a set of wheel bearings for good measure. I'm thinking this trailer must have been kept indoors and jacked up for many of it's non use years!
Does Scamp/MFG keep records on what parts go into their builds over the years. For example if I gave 'em the VIN# would they be able to tell me what axle I have and what size brakes
were installed (mine's a 4-lug wheel)
Thanks again for helpful info, Steve
