What a nice day to work on the boat trailer. It needs an overhaul to be able to go to Maine and back. One of the shocks is leaking. While doing some surfing for new shocks I found I have a TeeNee trailer. I believe it is a TeeNee OB-50.

It had 8 year old class B tires on it. I walked into a tire sale at Northern and picked up a new set of class C tires. Joy. I spun the hub after I removed the tire. It rumbled. No Joy. Off to the store for bearing sets. I cleaned up a hub and pounded out the races. Sure am glad I have that 40ton press. It made installing the new races much easier. Still need to do the other side. And source some shocks.

I want to install guideons asap. It's a pita to line it up in a cross wind. Should be good to go then.

The joys of boat ownership. Nice to be able to do the work yourself. Saves a bundle and makes those "project" boats affordable. The old 70's VW beetle shocks fit many of those old coil sprung trailers.

More surfing on replacement shocks says Monroe Gas-Matic 59041 is it. Ordered a pair from Advanced Auto. That takes care of that.

I did check the spec sheet for them to make sure they were close enough on the measurements.
