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...

  • How Can I Figure Out if the Jack I Need to Replace is a Shelby Weld On Jack # 5876A8
  • 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,...

  • How Many Digits are In a Trailer VIN and Where is the VIN Located
  • The VIN number is likely 17 digits for a trailer. Usually commercial trailer manufacturers will indicate the VIN on the same plate or sticker that carries the brand name, model number 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 trailer produced just like on a vehicle. If you cannot find the VIN on the trailer you can check for...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Gear Kit # 5772-82 Installation Instructions
  • Installing the gears is fairly easy, You will need to remove the cap at the top of the jack. The handle and gear are held in place with a roll pin that will need to be removed. You can then remove the handle, square block and gear. You can then remove the bottom gear by lifting it out. If the bottom roll pin is damaged remove it also and the washer can be replaced after removing the lower pin. When replacing the bottom gear on the roll pin be sure that the slotted portion of the gear is...

  • Cranking Ratio of the Shelby Jack part # 5874A8
  • I pulled a Shelby Bolt-On Trailer Jack part # 5874A8 from our warehouse to determine what the cranking ratio is. I was able to determine that after 8 cranks the jack moves an inch. 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?

  • How to Install Shelby Replacement Gear Kit # 5772-82 in Sidewind Drop Leg Trailer Jack # 6108SW
  • 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...

  • 3,200 lb Capacity, American Made Winch Recommendation
  • I went out into our warehouse and measured the drum hub of the Shelby Jack part # 5480 and found that it measures 1-7/8 inches in diameter. This winch and the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 are both very similar. Both are made in the US, have 3,200 lb capacities, are two speed jacks, and both have very similar gear ratios. The Dutton Lainson has a 5 year limited warranty, whereas the Shelby has a 3 year limited warranty. I would lean towards the Dutton Lainson because of the warranty...

  • Can I Use my Original Strap with a New Winch
  • There are a few things to consider before you use a strap with a winch. The Shelby Two-Speed Hand Winch, # 5460, has a weight capacity of 2,300 lbs and requires a 2 inch wide strap. We also recommend that the strap load rating be 150 percent of the winch capacity. Another thing that I would take into consideration is the condition of your strap. If your current strap is frayed, stretched out, or has been exposed to the elements often, then I would recommend replacing the strap. For...

  • Can Handle on Shelby Winch # 5405 Be Moved to the Opposite Side
  • The handle on Shelby winch, # 5405, cannot be moved to the other side. The left side does not offer the correct mounting holes for the paw spring. For a winch that you can move the handle to the left side you can use # FW16000101. Another option is a ratcheting winch like # DL16003 but it has a 400 pound capacity only. And a third option is a worm gear winch with the handle on the top, # DL10950. Worm gear winches are slow which makes them great for hoisting and the controlled movement...

  • Worm Gear Winch Recommendation for Slow, Controlled Feeding Out
  • I believe a worm gear winch would be your best option. They make the best hoist winches because you can control the feed in and out without worrying about the winch releasing and letting the load free wheel. Check out the Fulton Worm Gear Winch # FKW30000103. This is a worm gear winch with enough capacity that should work very well for you.

  • Hand Winch for Installing Tents that Allows Controlled Movement of a Load
  • What you need is a brake winch. Dutton Lainson winch # DL15303 is not a brake winch and you would be in the same situation as you are with the existing winches. Since you need controlled movement of a load and it is a hoisting situation, the ideal winch for you is a worm gear winch like # DL10950 or one of the other ones I have linked to the right. Worm gear winches are brake winches. Let go of the handle and the load stops. They do not need a minimum load to operate and letting go...

  • What is the Width of the 8 Inch Swivel Jack Replacement Wheel # 0047-09
  • The width of the Shelby Replacement 8 inch Wheel for Swivel Jacks, item # 0047-09, is 2 inches. We also carry the Replacement Wheel Kit for Fulton Marine Jacks - 8 inch, item # F0933323S00, which is 2-1/8 inches wide. If neither of these are the correct replacement for your jack let me know the manufacturer and the model number of your jack, if possible, and I will be glad to try to find the correct replacement wheel for you.

  • Shelby Trailer Winch # 5353 Brake Is Slipping Even Though Handle is Tight
  • There are a couple of things you can check on your Shelby winch, # 5353. First, if there is very little or no load on the winch the brake will not work properly. This winch has a minimum load requirement of 525 lbs. If the cable is not moving out, do not continue to turn the handle counter-clockwise. If you do it will disengage the brake mechanism. Make sure to follow the minimum operating load as indicated on the winch/in the manual. You can also inspect the brake mechanism and brake...

  • What Size Hitch Ball is Needed for a 17 foot Boston Whaler Montauk on a Factory Trailer
  • I did a bit of research and found that if your trailer is the original trailer from Boston Whaler, it should have a 2 inch coupler on it. This would mean that you need to select a 2 inch hitch ball that is rated for the total weight of your trailer and all contents fully loaded, fueled and ready to tow. I attached a link to all of the hitch balls that we stock for you to select from. My personal choice would be the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set, # 903B, which is stainless steel...
