You've confused me with that one. Your trailer would need a diff and to be linked up to some sort of powertrain to cosider locks - Wouldn't it??????

What are you up to now, Musty? You have a trailer with a driven axle? In the words of Pauline Hanson - Please explain?

Good idea if your going to drive your trailer out by itself to pickup some fire wood,
I was thinking of putting one on my wheel barrow

Obviously one of these

I was thinking of putting an air locker in mine, but in the end settled for a Unimog recovery vehicle http://www.ebroadcast.com.au/ecars/Unimog/1999.html

ARB have one to suit, all you have to do is give them the diff specs, if they dont have one they have heaps on the drawing board, just dont tell them you want it for your trailer. Just keep that OUR secret ok?

Thanks for your help Peter D M...

My mother Frank, noticed that there was a sour flavour in some of the responces too.

Her advice is to take all the good in ... and ignore the rest.

As for "the majic mushroom really wheelie diff lock company" I can only warn you off them.

We had them change a dodgy part (tyre air-valve cap) on the way to Mullumbimby Festival one year and they did not seem to value the work at all. Go figure?

As I have stated before. It takes all types.

You can't get them for galvanised trailers, only powder coated ones.

D-Jack...

Thanks. Your the only sensible reply to my question so far.

I think I have found a Co. in Hampton Park that will re-engineer the powdered coated one to fit a Gal trailer. Pheww!!!

It has been a battle I can tell you.

My Doctor has increased my medication and is re-engineering my mind. This will take three days and will coincide with the completion of the trailer diff.

Thank goodness.

All is well.

Diff for a gal trailer?

Must be quite a stud. You need a trailer for your gal's?

Or they just overly buxom gals?

Great OKA.

can you email some more pics if you find time PLEASE.

Hesslem AT Bigpond DOT net DOT au

I did want one a while back but $$$ was an issue and I didn't get a great report on them. Still, I have the Coaster and we get around BUT nowhere like you do hahahaha.

My friend is an OKA nut. But doesn't own one. He just droped an worked V6 from a Commadore into a Late model Hi-ace van. He's got too much of an imagination I think. Anyway he's a OKA fan so it'd be great to see some pics from an owner.

Thanks

Hey iMusty,

I need a couple of buckets of compressed air delivered to me, and a friend at Channel 9 needs a chroma key and a long weight delivered to the gatehouse.

Any chance of a hand???

Dear James,

I haven't slept for the last three nights, since reading your question and i'Mafraid the only way I'll get some sleep is to 'come clean'.

As part of my service in the French Foreign Legion with my grandfather and son we were based in 'nam when a spy, who we relied on for reconnaissance, and who will have to remain nameless as she's still operating in the Beaumauris area, discovered that the Yanks had in fact engineered, in her words "good quality diff locks for a gal trailer". The reason for their inception was the fact that the military issue Hummers couldn't even drive around the perimeter of one of the local gaols and they needed the forward drive trailers to push them. The leader of these trailer pushed Hummers was a bloke who wore a bandanna and had parachuted in, under the cover of darkness with his truck strapped to his back and his favourite pets, a jellyfish and a little white dog clutched in his hands, whilst shooting a big gun with his feet, taking out 267 Viet Cong, as he landed.

Anyway to cut along story short, according to my father, Gertrude and his brother, Hortense the guy who invented these diff locks is now running a rather large fast food chain which is really a front for a 3.0 litre Nissan Patrol engine laundering outfit, but the stresses of war have had a bit of an effect on him and he now gets around wearing a red and white striped shirt and socks, yellow overalls and very large red shoes with yellow laces asking people if they'd like fries with their order. He may still have some of his secret trailer diff locks in stock so I'd suggest you drop in and ask next time you see one of his stores - you can't miss them they have a big yellow logo which he designed in memory of his rather large Vietnamese lover, being his final image of her as he was dragged away from her bedroom by the MPs, after going AWOL.

Good luck in your quest.
