Arrows 1.75 tonne trailer - info and parts needed

Recommended Posts

A friend is looking for a replacement offside hub for an Arrows 1 3/4 tonne trailer or possibly information on where to go for one. It is possible that the axle was a standard part bought in by Arrows. So anything you might be able to help on. The problem is that the brake drum is cracked.

cheers Richard

Arrows factory was not far from where I live, and I remember trailer loads of axles comming to the factory so they were bought in parts.

Hi John,

That's what I was thinking, thanks for confirming. Likely supplier could have been Rubery Owen maybe.

I am sorry I cannot remember. York were a supplier, Fergusons used to do most of the transport. I moved their prototype road planner a few times.

Most people on here would know what one of these trailers are, and would hopefully know where to find any parts, but here is a photo of one just in case. Any leads welcomed.

Sorry I meant of the bits to try to identify a manufacturer, I have been trying to find an ex Arrow- Target employee. They could be just a standard Sankey. Arrows did the design and fabrication, bought in running gear and hitch. If the light units were not specified Rubbolight they were probably made by Magnatech another local company

Richard,

Is the hub required if only the drum is cracked.

I assume, that if this hub and brake drum is used on more than just the Arrows trailer the NSNs would be the same in the illustrated parts catalogue for each trailer. If I'm correct, it may make a replacement hub/drum easier to find if the Arrows drum is common to one or more other makes and/or sizes of trailer.

Plan B - If, the drum is unobtainable, cast and machine a new drum or even a pair.

Thanks, the owner does not have an ISPL otherwise we would have a NSN to work on. Thought he said the hub and drum were one part. Casting and machining a drum is not out of the question but as there are a good many of these trailers around it stands to reason there could be spares as well, or someone is breaking trailers. I have a strong feeling the axle assembly was bought in by Arrow and parts could be common to other military trailers. There are, or have been forum members with the Arrows trailers.

This forum is deadly quiet lately and a lot of usual suspects have disappeared so not getting the feedback I would have expected.

Thanks John,

I can remember the towing hitch assy was bought in from form another manufacturer when I worked on these trailers about 25+ years ago.

A shame that the 'disappeared' didn't give the new forum more of a go before they left us!

There is a one for sale on Millweb at the moment. It has had a lot of work done on the braking system so the owner Graham Collins may have some usefull information, there is a contact number listed.
