But uses smaller hub and brakes of the 35,000 pound axles (tube size less than three inches)
The brakes are 10inchs for the 44,000 pound axle and down.
the 52,000 pound and up brakes are 12 inches.

So... the spindle, hub and brakes goes to the 35,000.
The beam, goes to the 52,000.

I am very sorry to all! I posted some erroneous info about nev-r-adjust brake adjustment procedures. I have since learned that the drums have to be rotating forwards in order for the adjusting mechanism to work. Please forgive my stupidity!

After engaging the brake spoon in the star wheel (put a flashlight in one of the oval holes and adjust thru the other) A downward motion will tighten and moving the screwdriver upward will loosen, tighten down-loosen up.

You may have to use another small screwdriver to move the lever out of the way to loosen the star wheel.

How many miles do you feel a set of trailer brakes should go? I have about 10,000 miles on mine. I checked them today and they have about 3/16 pad left. I'm planning to do 10,000 plus this summer so I guess I had better have them changed.
