Adding Brakes to Acme Car Dolly


Good morning, do you have brake kits electric or surge for the ACME Idler EZE tow dolly? Thank you!


Expert Reply:

We don't offer parts specific for the Acme tow dolly, but we have the parts you'd need to add either electric or hydraulic drum brakes. I'm assuming your tow dolly doesn't currently have brakes, and that your current hubs use the # L44649 as the inner and outer wheel bearing. If that's the case, to add electric brakes, you'd need the following parts:
# 8-257-5UC3-EZ hub drum for EZ lube spindle or # 8-257-5UC3 for standard spindles # 23-47 and # 23-48 electric brake assemblies # H20044 7-way trailer connector # 38656 Junction Box, # DW05702-1 Ring terminals and # 10-1-1 brake wire

You'd also need a brake controller like # 90885 if you didn't already have one.

To add hydraulic brakes, you'd need the following:
# DM72VR Brake Actuating Coupler # 8-271-7UC3-EZ hub drum for EZ lube spindle or # 8-271-7UC3 for standard spindle # 23-398 and # 23-399 hydraulic brake assemblies
# DM5402 brake line kit

If your current hubs use different bearings, let me know the inner and outer bearing numbers and I'll see what's available.
