    Hi Tony
    A photo would be useful.
    Is this the concertina rubber near the towing hitch or are they fitted to the wheels and cable operated?

    fitted on hub backplate, rectangular in shape with a slot for the operating arm to exit.
    The trailer is old, 70's/80's and the brakes are rod operated, been thinking about changing to cable jobs, but I fear the price, probably cheaper to buy a late second hand trailer.
    I use the trailer here a la frog to move the berly around occaisionaly. It is registered as a piece of collection(strange French custom) and has its own reg no!
    I'll try to get a photo or two this afternoon!

    Without a photo, it is difficult to determine the type you have fitted.

    Would they be similar to those fitted to a classic mini?

    Ok, a buddy arrived yesterday with some beers so I was a little diverted!
    Photo as requested
    Looks like it could be a mini job, dimensions are about 46mm long x 27 wide, sao if there is a 'U' shaped mounting channel those might be 45 x 25
    Hope this helps!

    Hi Tony.
    At least you have an ID number on the rubber boot.

    Searching for Lockheed 32324 gives two leads.

    Western towing

    TR7&8 on ebay

    Hope this helps. Peter.

    Thanks for the leads, although I had been in contact with west...… before posting, they could not help me.
    I have also just dropped the other lot a question about mounting dimensions, they might weel be possible with a little adaptation!
    Thanks for your efforts

    This looks to be the part you require at the cheapest price too

    Postage is £6.95 to France
