Ha ha, That is a Mutt not a Jeep. They are hard to get a hold of due to roll over incidents.

The Fulton Coupling rebuild parts showed up. I figured everything out except it comes with an upholstery style hog ring. My guess is the hog ring is used to keep the knob from coming off when not in use. Maybe you clamp it into the cotter pin hole at the top of the retaining bolt?

David,
I'm not familiar with a kit having a "hog ring" part.  Which kit did you get?  How well this works for you will be interesting as others have posted on how to fix their couplers.

Very nice candidate for a rebuild David. I've seen them in way worse shape for sure! I think the hog ring goes in the hole on the bolt in lieu of a cotter pin? I love your jeep too! I've got a 1952 M38 Cdn that I tow a 1953 M100 Cdn trailer with. Mine is more of a show rig that I take out on nice days. The trailer in this picture is a US M100 I also have.

The top pic is the installation using old and new parts that I did this morning.

The bottom pic shows what I cobbled up 20 years ago on the left and the new repair kit that I just purchased.
