View Full Version : UFP Brake Bleeder Screws on Boatmate Trailer

Does anyone know what thread and size the brake bleeder screws are on a Boatmate trailer?

They can be found here http://www.pacifictrailers.com/caliper-bleeder-screw-for-UFP-DB35/

but it doesnt state the size of thread, etc.

I am located in the UK and need a couple......so the postage from USA to UK will overwhelm the cost of the parts.

Even a cross-reference part # might help?

I assume they are Imperial thread.....

Have to replace cause they are stuck in badly, and looks like i'm gonna have to drill them out.

You might could contact UFP directly. I have talked to them on the phone a couple of times and were super helpful. I'm sure that someone there knows what size they are.

Good luck, Dave! Be sure to post some pics this year. We want to see where you ski.

Meant to add my link some time ago.....

On my youtube channel you can see where we board on the tidal stretch of the River Severn in England.

Here you can see my Moomba Mobius V 2000 (imported from Florida in 2007, from eBay) in action.
Blue and white hull.

Our river is about 100 yards wide and we have 6 miles of it, with about a half dozen boats.

There is also lots of videos of my boat on Vimeo...some really good ones, and i'm dragging her to the south of France again this summer....so we'll get some great videos again.

Nice riding, Dave. What do you call that video? "Shredding the Shire"??????
