WTB: Ben Hur Trailer Parking Wheel Bolt

Post by Jon Lewis » Sun Sep 18, 2016 5:47 pm

This would be the square shouldered bolt that goes through the center of the wheel.

If can't find an axle bolt, get a 5/8" bolt with 11/16" hex head that has the appropriate length and
#1A add weld to hex end shaft and grind weld into square with 5/8" flats, or
#1B drill out the threads of a square nut with 5/8" flats and weld that just under the hex bolt head, and
#3 center punch and drill threaded axle end for castle nut/cotter pin.

Done. :)

The axle bolts don't come up for sale often b/c they are part of landing wheel assembly. I need to make an extra for a trailer. You want a repro landing wheel bolt? I could make up an extra for you while I am at it. $20 ok? (plus ship).

This is a worn original Ben Hur axle bolt that was model for repro bolts.
