I will use the drum brakes  from it and will use the rest for $$$$$$$$$$$

Geee'z Craigs List is about as bad a HF  I was cruising around a ran across a listing about a 1977 Conseco Car hauler--Sale Pending  good price  I let the guy know I might be a player depending up on the dimensions---long stor short this guy Dan and his buddy baught it out of the Ernie I. estate sale in CA. along with most all of the Ford Indy camer stuff spring of 2006.  It has been a storage trailer for the last ten years but Ms Liberty will fit inside barely .

progress is being made--batteries bought, key made,  switch replaced

--wowie-- zowie--back ramp goes up and down 

Called Marty and he came by with one of the axles turned down ready to be re-splined for the El M axle

My job of the day is to wire in some fuses and finish the re wiring that Marty had to do on the pump wiring on the front hyd ram that raises the trailer for hooking up.

Hopefully we will be able to start the re-spline soon.

axle update
01  this is the remains of a Ford 9" yoke that had 28 splines  cut it down to 1.750 and we were the axle to use a piece of 1.750 dom tubing as an alignment tool
02 & 03 the remains of a GM 4x4 frt. axle shaft and bearing that he used to mount the old 4 jaw chuck to

You may want to look into getting those axles heat treated after you've resplined them. I've had experience with doing 9" Ford axles in the past and without heat treatment they'd shear off right where they entered the side gears.

Good luck.  :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
