So I took the hubs to RedNeck trailers. After an hour they concluded that after 55 Dexter Re-machined the hub. So I'm screwed. I have to cut the axle and weld snubs on. Dropped off at my friends who has a jig for this. The project has been an uphill battle since day one... Just the way I like it..

Yeah the foam is here. Having problems with the hubs for the MasterCraft trailer. I bought two new ones today,,Even took the old one in.. It's cracked and welded.... Exact same part Number as the one original hub,,but it doesn't fit. The bearing are spaced at about 2 3/8 . too far apart for thr 2" long axle. You can see the difference in the photo. The one on the left is original . Look how far down the seal seats compared to the one on the right. Good thing I have an extra MasterCraft under the Lone Star..

The pulleys came today from JR. Installed the throttle cable. Ordered the open cell foam. Fretting about registration. Spending any time at all at the PA Boat commission,is like spending time in a Gitmo Cell...... I need to shore up the boat to get the trailer out from beneath.

Chinwisker,
There are a couple informative videos on youtube. Put "aircraft riveting" in the search box.

I'll bring it to RP. It may not be registered or running,,but I'll bring it. I'm a land lubber anyway. I'd much rather work on them then ride in them...It's much more exciting.

John,,never do I doubt you.
so I went out and took a photo. JR told me the same thing,,but I didn't have my glasses on.. I took a photo and what I thought was a W was an M. Thank you ! ;) Brendon was home tonight from Drill. He read through the instruction of the PO-15.. In the end he said,,record this starting procedure,,,and you are going to die...

This is Chinwisker calling for a little schooling... I am the old guy who happens to have the 1949 Meteor.. She has been beat up and left to die but I am
going to nurse her back from the dead...
SO much to learn here my head is spinning WEW..
I would really appreciate it if you would explain the rivet procedure? Its something I have never seen. They look like super big pop riviets? are they?
I will need to go to school this summer before I even attempt anything or maybe I should apprentice some on
Any mentoring you can spare would be a blessing for me as I begin this journey .
Humbly Chinwisker
