some trailers do have relatively little weight on them when empty and if the ram is tight ie. having good seals it may take some weight to get it down. when you tip the trailer next with some weight in it, lift it a little way and then try gently letting it down. Of course if a ram is bent or damage...

Do be careful when you hitch up to let your linkge off after latching as it will stretch the chains very quickly. Make sure there is not too much wear on the ring and beware ...

Before you go to the trouble of fitting power steering make that all is well with the linkage and is properly greased and free, also make sure the front tyres are pumped up hard. Drove these with loaders for years with no power steering mind you would not do it by choice now!

One other point about anti freeze mixes. Anti freeze itself is not so efficent at transferring heat as water is so the higher percentage of anti freeze the less efficent it becxomes at its job.

one little detail about radiator fluids. I always like to use distilled water (or equivalent) to make up with the anti freeze and use 33%.

sorry to offend anyone I certainly meant it with a tongue in the cheek

saying that when the horse died it was a real struggle to show a deep sense of loss :roll:
