And boy did it need it, lol.
Okay right to it then, if you check my seat repair in another post this thing was on its last legs with cover, rust and trashed foam and here it is popped on with no obstructions. A bit of work but here it is.

The tools at hand off grid are usually enough I rarely stop what I’m doing to go to town for a tool.
The stock 200E ball is a 1 7/8” with a 1” shank and I found a 2” ball with a 1” shank to put on because my Muts Trailer runs that setup. I’m going to stay 2” on everything to keep things easy.

Got the right drum that was awesome news. I wire wheeled the inside of the drum but it wouldn’t fit over the shoes!
I added a shot of my “shop” lol

When the drum was removed at the salvage yard in eBay land they beat the hell out of it and it made dimples through to the inside of the drum and wouldn’t allow the axle to spin. At first the drum would not even slide over the shoes at all, ugh. Mark said don’t trim down the shoes and I’m glad I listened as the problem was barely noticeable to the eye but on closer inspection I found the issue at hand.
To start the repair I used some different profile vintage tire spoons to get in there from the inside and tap out as close to metal finishing as possible. The metal was very thin really so dremeling would have went right through it so I tapped out until it spun freely on the carrier. You can clearly see the flat spots from a hammer on the outside surface shots[frown]

Then the dremel came in. Very little as it was close to metal finished at this point and I remembered how hard it was to find one of these anywhere online..be careful with yours ppl btw I did a post on the drum removal using a deep socket I learned from someone else on here. When I was done it went on with no resistance and spun freely and all is well. 4 hrs tedious work as I recall.

Don’t ask I have no idea. The carrier and axle were centered fine without the damn thing.

I put about 8-10 squirts of oil down the bolt holes in the fork tubes. I’m a (very) firm believer in keeping oil on stuff whenever possible. I don’t know what else was there but its oily now lol

If you need a 2000 lbs capability trailer for off Hwy use.. save yourself the trouble of researching etc. just get a MUTS- multi use trailer system. It’ll haul one yard of gravel, has walking beam suspension, you can take the ends off and haul longer stuff. Weighs 450-500 lbs empty and the E is rated to pull 700 lbs.. the Muts is outstanding in every regard I love the thing.

Then I went and did some stump jumping up on the mountain to celebrate, lol. The fog was covering up my view. Those are my neighbors over there. Lowlanders:)
