AB Trailer axle dismantling ?


Recommended Posts


I'm doing a complete strip down on my Airborne trailer Nr 1 Mk II.

The backing plate to the brakes is held in place by nuts and bolts but it cannot be slid off the end of the axle due to a flange or ring on the outer side. According to the parts list these are held in place by a key. Can I just use a puller to ease them off the end of the axle or do I risk causing damage ? Would it be wiser to leave the flanges in place and just sand the backing plates where they are mounted.


Advice appreciated. Thanks.
