    non rotating lunette ring

    Hi All,

    Just purchased a haulmark PT1 trailer and there is a block on the shaft of the lunette ring stopping it from rotating. I want to tow this with a coulpe of different vehicles so would like to have the ring swivel and the pintle hook solid . I see reference to this as an army mod in my searches but that's about as much as I could find.
    Im hand with a spanner and it looks like a roll pin or grub screw locating the top of the block onto the shaft, but its possible it could go right thru. Does anyone have a link to a how to on removing this so it can rotate , even if that rotation is limited , it just seems a bit to stiff for offroad as it is.

    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers bulletman

    Well couldn't find much searching , and no replies as yet , so I decided to pull the tow ring off and have a look for myself.

    So I undone the 4 bolts which hold it on ,lift the ring and the whole piece comes out thru the front. pics 1 & 2
    Pic 3 shows the square block that stops the ring rotating.
    Pic 4 , I just trimmed off the bottom corners of the block - came up 10mm & in 10mmboth sides and cut with a knife disc on the grinder
    pics 5,6,7 - show it bolted back on with about 30 degrees rotation each way, and a view of the block looking down.

    Took less than 1 hour to do .

    Cheers Bulletman
