The wheel center and the spindle are one and the same.
The center of the torsion shaft that articulates inside the rubber , is what I don't have a name for...
Mike here is what I can find so far:
Is the fulcrum the center of the wheel or the center of the Axle tube.
So the inset from the back of the trailer 37.5% does that center the Wheel/Spindle (same thing) or does it center the axle tube.
Lets get a consensus here
Got the sides marked and cut out and am about the build the floor. Gotta Know. I'm still guessing centering on the Axle even though the wheels are offset from the axle. The weight of the trailer rotates around the axle shaft not the Wheel/spindle. Am I thinking straight?
I'm using the terminology as per the diagram of sdtripper2
Your decision to go with 37.5% from the back of your trailer, it is based on
Door placement & fender placement considerations?
