I knew you lent them something, Didn't mean to misquote it's been years ago. I remember buying one at Napa after and like I said my trailer is at the Dr. so I can't look at what I bought. I remember that I loosened that nut and tried to drop that revolution down, I couldn't do it by myself. If I remember right I just tightened it back and re torqued it to the specks they recommended and back it off a little to install the cotter pin. My new one still can not be turned by hand which is fine with me, I also think it makes hooking up easier. It really has nothing to do with the operation of the pivot when attached to the truck hitch. I just have to make sure I'm at the same angle when I re hook, being I can't still turn it by hand.
