M101a2 aft suport leg

Postby Theosaf66 » Wed Jan 10, 2018 12:44 pm

Hi Guys,
Last year I've go a M101A2 USAF trailer from a yard in Germany and I brought it to Greece (only M101A1) existed in the Greek Army.
Couple months ago I started the restoration and somehow I have stuck with the installation of the back support leg which I've got from Ebay.
The problem is that when it is folding forward the hook has lots of space to rich the lock device.
Is any instructions or advise how to do it??

Not sure what you mean by the words in boldface. :?

Sorry Theo but I don't have the M1o1 so I can't offer any guidance.

I think he means it won't reach the lock device. I will have to go out and look at my M101. It does not have the leg but I have one to put on it. Just thinking do you unscrew / extend the leg so it reaches the locking device?

I have an M101A1, so maybe the rear leg design is different, but mine has a cross pin that holds the leg up when retracted.

Theo, if you could post some photos of your trailer and landing leg, showing the problem, that would be helpful.
