Simplicity Axles™ are used by:

> Leading Caravan Manufacturers  

> Agricultural Implement Manufacturers

The Australian Defence Force selected Simplicity Axles™ for its trailers used locally and deployed overseas. After rigorous testing, Simplicity Axles™ emerged as the best axle for the job.

Alignment procedure

With wheels removed from the unit, place a straight edge across the hub and measure the distance into the chassis 200 mm on either side of the hub. The two points measured should correspond with the drawing below (measuring points should be approximately 400 mm apart; see below for diagram.)

The correct setting should be equal to 0.75 mm narrower at the front.  

To Adjust:

1.  Loosen off the clamp bolt on the adjuster cam.

2.  Rotate either in or out as required.

3.  Repeat on the opposite side.


 

Then check from wheel to wheel using straight edges. Measurement should be equal to 1.5 mm narrower at the front. If there is any discrepancy, alter both sides half the amount necessary, this will keep the axle square to the chassis.

For example: If the hub face to hub face is 4 mm narrower at the front move both wheels out

1.5-2 mm.

When all measurements are correct, tension clamp bolts to 70-80 ft-lb.

NOTE: On the tandem units, perform the above procedure on the leading axles. When satisfied with the front axles, with the aid of two straight edges, align the rear wheel parallel to the front hubs.
