Bill,

That sounds like some good ideas.

Junk Yard Parts?

Postby Bob Kuczewski » Sat Dec 09, 2017 3:24 pm

I just had a long chat with one of my hang gliding friends, and he described an idea he had for a payout system using a MacPherson strut assembly with the hub, wheel, and brake already assembled and ready to bolt to a truck bed. He also described using a windshield wiper assembly as the "level winder" for retrieval.

Has anyone seen those kinds of components used in towing?

No but I would sure like to see a YouTube video with one.
