Car Transporter Trailer: Drawbar Setup

Bend up a couple of drawbar guides and fit them to the front chassis crossmember with a minimum 1mm gap between the guide and the outside face of the drawbar section. Fit the guide gussets for a bit of additional strength and tack weld.

Unclamp the drawbar and lift the front end up approx. 5-600mm and check its action. If there is any stiffness or binding, try and find the offending component and adjust or trim/grind as required.
