Should be of use...

ng19 Delta Thanks! I am getting the Ord 7 and 8 from the the list of trailer manuals for sale but he didn't have 9 so this is a great addition and Retro Rocco has generously posted the TM 9-890 on his site too.
Thanks to both of you guys and Robert for offering the manuals for sale.

The bad news is the manuals do confirm I have a non-original axle but the hubs and drums are correct. Actually I don't know if the axles were swapped in service or not or if even this was a later series axle since most TM's tend to show the earliest models. I know the former owner of 40 yrs did not make any changes but it did have a few years in civvy service after first being DRMO'd. I believe it saw very little use though in those few years.

Once I get this trailer restored I plan to hook it up as a doubles combo behind my 3 1/2 ton semitrailer and G7113. The setting will be "returning empty" to the depot for reloading and the 5 ton would have been added only as a return haul behind the 3 1/2 ton as the original 5 ton pulling tractor was knocked out of service. A plausible scenario and a realistic load as both trailers will be empty and the rear end of the 3 1/2 ton does have a pintle hook and electric coupler for hooking on another trailer.

Thanks again David
