Also blew it on the trailer ball I used. It is one old those old hollow balls with a carriage bolt to mount it. Who ever installed it before must have used an impact and collapsed it enough that it expanded it to about 2 1/8" instead of the 2" needed to fit the trailers. Since I did not want the bolt to go through the adapter I welded the ball to the adapter.
Seems like the sign I saw in the old family doctor's office 50 years ago saying "The hurrieder I go the behinder I get" was right..
