Expert Answers about Shelby

  • Where is the Trailer Serial or VIN Number Located
  • The vehicle identification number or serial number for a trailer is usually found on a plate or sticker on the trailer frame, usually on the tongue. It will also list the capacity of the trailer and/or other information. For a Shelby coupler, the model number may be stamped into the metal on top or on the underside of the coupler.

  • Where to find VIN Number on a Used Utility Trailer
  • Usually commercial trailer manufacturers will indicate the unique vehicle identification number (VIN) on the same plaque that carries their brand name, model number information and the trailer specifications. The model number of the trailer is not the same as the VIN number; the same model number may be used on multiple trailers but a VIN number is unique and individual to each one produced. If you cannot find the VIN on the trailer tongue you can check for plaques on other parts of...

  • Where to Find VIN Number on a Klinn Trailer
  • The Klinn organization was established in Derbyshire in December 1991 and formally dissolved in August 1999; hence there is no company website available for research. I was able to find a number of images of their various trailer products using a search engine. However, none of these photos gives any clear indication as to the location of the VIN number. I suggest you inspect the area around the nose of the trailer frame (where it couples to the tow vehicle) for any small placards...

  • Replacement 2,800 Pound Shelby Hand Winch for a Boat Trailer
  • The Shelby trailer winch # 5470 could be the same one that you have but I checked with Shelby and there are several models of the 5470. This one is the basic model and it is steel. The mounting hardware is not included but you can re-use the old mounting hardware if its in good shape. I do not recommend a cable for marine applications. Instead I recommend a strap because nylon is corrosion resistant. The length you need depends on the distance needed to let the boat out in the water...

  • Heavy Duty Winch Recommendation for Lowering a Boat and Trailer Down a Boat Ramp
  • To save your back I would go with an electric winch. Without knowing the incline percentage of your boat ramp and the weight of your boat it's hard to say exactly what would be the capacity you would need. Based on your previous winch having a 3,200 lb capacity I would recommend you go with the Superwinch AC3000 AC Powered Winch # 1730000 since it has a 3,000 lb capacity and is our highest rated winch. Now to determine what rating winch you will need check out the chart I attached. First...

  • Winch Recommendation for Moving Pieces of a Tree
  • A better option for you would be the Shelby 3,200 lbs. Two-Speed Winch # 5480. This winch has more capacity, has 2 speeds to allow you to winch in lighter pieces at a faster rated and heavier ones slower with more leverage. This winch also has a free wheel option which will allow you to easily pull the cable out to get down your hill. For cable to go along with this winch you would want the part # DL24100 if you want a 25 foot cable or the part # DL24104 for 50 feet. I attached an...

  • Is it Required that a Swivel Jack Be Fully Retracted Before Towing
  • Well since this jack can fold up for storage you would not need to fully retract it before you can tow. I have had trailers with similar jacks and found that I could just crank the jack up until the wheel comes off of the ground and then pull the pin in the jack and rotate it 90 degrees and be done with it. There's no reason you would have to fully retract this jack to use it. A 3 to 1 ratio might make for difficult cranking as well since you wouldn't have the same leverage over...

  • 2-Inch Surge Brake Coupler Repair Kit for Escort Trailer
  • My research on Escort trailers revealed a wide range of models produced at many different U.S. manufacturing sites, but I could find no mention of the brands of couplers supplied as original equipment. We do offer coupler repair kits for many brands of couplers, including Shelby, Atwood, Husky, Curt and Dutton-Lainson. For example, part # CP02-050 is a Latch Repair Kit for 2-Inch Shelby Class II Couplers. The best way to identify the correct kit is to check the coupler for a sticker...

  • Recommendation of a Winch that has a capacity of 2100 Pounds for a Boat Trailer
  • Unfortunately, we don't currently carry a replacement for the Shelby 5409 with a 2100 pound capacity. We do carry additional winches that may work with your boat trailer. The Fulton single speed winch # FT21000301 is rated for 2100 pound maximum capacity or a Dutton Lainson hand winch # DL14825 which has a 2500 pound maximum capacity. You may also consider a Dutton-Lainson heavy duty brake winch # DL10786 which has a rating of 2500 pounds. The brake is automatically applied when cranking...

  • Availability of Side Crank Trailer Jack with Removable Handle
  • Most of our sidewind trailer jacks have handles that can be removed. For example, Bulldog sidewind jacks, like # BD182415, and Pro Series sidewind jacks, like # PS1400960376, are attached by a vertical clevis and pin. Other sidewind jacks, like Fulton F2 # F1413100334, have handles that can be removed by removing the 4 screws on the top and the top cap. There is a roll pin that holds the handle in place and you will need to use a center punch and hammer to tap it out so that you can...

  • Coupler Repair Kit For A Trailer With No Visible Make Or Model
  • Most of the couplers used on trailers have the make and model number stamped into the surface somewhere. If you are unable to find the make and model number, you may want to consider replacing the coupler on the trailer. Many of the couplers use components that are very similar looking but may vary in size because they are made for a specific couplers. It would be a hit or miss if you found a repair kit that would work for you. You can measure your trailer, and use those dimensions...

  • How to Get a Trailer VIN if the VIN is Missing or Cant be Read
  • If you have ever registered the trailer before then the DMV should have it on file and you could get the VIN from them. Otherwise you will have to have a highway patrol officer inspect the trailer and assign a VIN. You might need to contact your local DMV to make sure this practice is done in your state. I am not sure what the laws are in Australia but I am assuming you need the VIN in order to ship the trailer to Australia and not necessarily to register the trailer in Australia.

  • Replacement Gears for Shelby Thoroughbred Series Trailer Jack
  • I spoke with my contact at Shelby and we believe that the number that you located is actually the weight capacity which would read 2500LBS. For this jack you will need part # 6102-82, which is the replacement kit for 2500 and 3500 pound square tube jacks.

  • Will Replacement Jack Caster Wheel JC101 Fit an Unknown Powered A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • Caster # JC101 is designed to fit a 2-1/4 inch Shelby jack tube. If your jack has the same measurements you could use this caster. However the jack will need to have a hole for the pin to secure the wheel to the jack. Most powered A-frame trailer jacks do not have wheels because wheels limit the capacity of the jack to whatever the capacity of the wheel is. This wheel is rated for 2,000 pounds so if your jack is also rated for 2,000 pounds there would be no loss in capacity.

  • Can the Inner Leg of a Shelby Trailer Jack be Reinstalled After Taking Apart the Jack
  • Actually, you are going to need to replace the jack. What likely happened was the nut, screw or both inside have sustained thread damage and will not work right again. Many jacks have a screw with intentionally smashed threads at the end. This is to prevent the jack from over extending. If the good threads get to that damaged part then it damages the nut threads. This would also prevent it from installing correctly. I wish there was an easier way for you but the best and safest thing...

  • Where is the VIN Number Located on a Trailer
  • Usually the VIN on a trailer is on a plate or sticker on the tongue or frame. Usually it is at the front of the trailer and it could be on the outboard side of the frame or inboard. It should be a 19 character VIN. If you cannot locate the VIN then you would need to have the state police inspect the trailer and assign one. You may want to speak with the local DMV office for the correct procedure in your state if you cannot find the VIN.

  • If your mounting plate looks like the one in the attached picture and the distance from the center pin to the outside pin is 2-1/8 like in the picture then yes, you had a Shelby jack and the part # 5876A8 that you referenced would be an excellent choice for you.

  • trailer vin
  • If the trailer has ever been registered with the department of motor vehicles in your state, or any state, then those governing bodies would be who to ask. We do not have a way to look up a trailer or vehicle VIN at this time. According to a VIN decoder I found online the first 3 digits indicate the manufacturer. In this case it would be 17F but they do not say who that is. The next 2 digits are the type of trailer but there wasn't a DL option. The next 2 digits indicate the length,...

  • Replacement Trailer Jack for Old Jack that Mounted to Trailer with Snap Ring
  • No, the Shelby trailer jack # 6108TW is a weld-on jack. It does not have any other way to mount it. It sounds like you have a swivel jack that mounts via a snap ring. None of the swivel jacks rated for 8,000 pounds mount with a snap ring. I have included a link to all of the swivel jacks that we carry including bolt-on jacks, weld-on jacks, snap-ring and pipe mounts so you can determine the best match.

  • Cranking Ratio of the Shelby Jack part # 5874A8

I know you said you are looking for a different ratio than that, are you looking for a faster or slower ratio and how come?

  • Installation of the Shelby Replacement Gear Kit # 5772-82 in their Sidewind Drop Leg Trailer Jack # 6108SW is straightforward. According to my contact at Shelby once you remove the plastic top cap from the outer jack tube you will have access to the pin that holds the crank handle in place. Remove this pin and the handle will come free, giving you access to the gears and the pins that secure them. It is a good idea to apply some general purpose grease to the new gear set before replacing...
