50's Elgin Trailer Parts

(Bristol, WI USA)

Could someone tell me where to find 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 1/2 rubber pads that slide onto brackets on my Elgin trailer.

They look like clutch and brake peddle pads from an old car.

Mine has four in back and two in front.

Need picture Jim but from what your saying I would go to a machine shop and have the grove cut from plastic it looks like cutting board material you put on a counters but comes in all shapes and thickness.

Lots of boaters are using it instead of the old carpet rails.

It's tough durable and when you wash it is clean of contamination from one lake to another salved.

Good luck cal
