These grease seals are a great compliment to the Bearing Buddy lubricators. The spindle seals I had were shot and the grease pressure had pushed one of the seals completely out of the hub! The sleeve that came with the kit covered up a worn seal surface on the axle. This product saved me from having to replace the axle! I did have have to cut deeper grooves in the spindle nut to accomodate the cotter pin. I needed to remove about 2 MM and I was able to accomplish this with a Dremel tool and cut-off wheel. 87599


The Bearing Buddy grease seals are still working great after a year in service. I have to pull my trailer in snow and slush conditions, as well as off-road. In addition, it has to be stored outside when not in use. The grease stays in the hub, where it belongs. I would not install Bearing Buddy lubricators without these seals.

The old set of seals were oozing a little so I installed a set of new bearings and stock seals purchased from my local trailer supply store. I took it for a test ride, huge hunks of grease all over the inside of my rims, a real disappointment. Got on the web with, they got the 1.980 Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set - BB60001 and the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 1980A in a few days. It took 45 minutes to read the instructions, install the grease seals and protectors and clean-up. What a great fix! I had to make a 200 mile run that day to pick-up a classic canoe for a customer, not a speck of grease anywhere, clean, clean, clean!!! Great product, great fix, great price and service from Thanks 71261

An easy to install product that keeps grease where it should be -- in the hub and not all over the inside of your trailer wheels. It allows proper use of Bearing Buddies, and includes an inner stainless seal that repairs a damaged spindle. Excellent! 117376

Ask the Experts about this Bearing Buddy Seals for Trailer Bearings
Do you have a question about this Seals for Trailer Bearing?

  • Availability of a Replacement Grease Seal with 1.5 Inch Inner Diameter and 1.980 Outer Diameter
  • The closest grease seals that we carry to the dimensions you have specified are Grease Seals, # RG06-020, for a double lip seal pair, or # 10-9 for 1 single lip seal. These have an inner diameter of 1.5 inches and an outer diameter of 1.987 inches. That is only .007 inches larger than the 1.980 you have indicated. To find the exact replacement, I would need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings. I have included a video below showing how to...

  • How to Determine the Correct Grease Seals to Order for a 2002 EZ Loader 21 Foot Boat Trailer
  • To determine the correct grease seal for your trailer spindle and hub, we need to know the inner bearing number installed on the trailer or the dimensions of the seal surface on the spindle and the seal surface in the back of the hub. This will require removing one of the hubs and the grease seal in that hub. If you cannot find the inner bearing part number, you will need a precise measuring tool like a dial caliper to get measurements accurate enough to select the correct grease seals. Boat...

  • Which Bearing Buddies Fit Trailer Hub # 34822545BX
  • You will need Bearing Buddies that fit a 1.98 diameter hub bore. We have several models. For stainless steel use # BB1980A-SS. For chrome plated use # BB1980A. And, if the hub is threaded, use # BB1980T-SS. I also recommend special seals for use with Bearing Buddies, # BB60001, to prevent having a blow out with a regular seal.

  • Grease Seal Recommendation for a Spindle with Inner Bearing # L44643
  • It sounds like you are looking for the correct grease seal for your spindle. If your inner bearing is part # L44643 and the grease seal journal, or mounting location, on the spindle is 1.25 inches, then you have two grease seal options. For a standard double lip grease seal, you can use part # 34823. This seal will sit on the grease seal journal of the spindle. Your second option is the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set, # BB60001. These seals mount on a stainless steel seal ring and sit...

  • Are Other Parts Needed to Install Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A-SS
  • The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors you referenced, part # BB1980A-SS, do not require other parts for installation on your trailer hubs. What is important is that your current trailer hubs have the correct bore for these parts, 1.980-inches as measured with a digital caliper, and that your outer bearing number matches one of the three that are compatible with this Bearing Buddy kit: L-44643, L-44649 or L-44640. Also please note that Bearing Buddies cannot be used on EZ-Lube spindles...

  • Recommendation For Correct Grease Seal When Using Bearing Buddy Protectors on Motorcycle Trailer
  • The Bearing Buddy Seals, part # BB60001, will not fit your application. I would recommend to use the TruRyde Double Lip Grease Seals, part # RG06-010. These are the correct size and are a double lip grease seal. These seals will work better than the normal single lip seal, when using the Bearing Buddy protectors on your trailer. The double lip seal will help maintain the slight pressure that is in the hub when using the Bearing Buddy protectors.

  • What Order do the Parts Get Installed for Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60001 for Bearing Buddies
  • The video is correct. The diagram is more for identifying the parts and their basic placement. The o-ring actually is supposed to ride on the spindle but can actually fit through that stainless steel ring when not on the spindle. So basically, you will slide on the stainless steel ring first then slip the o-ring on. The grease seal will install in the back of the hub just like you would normally do with a seal. You would then install the hub. So the diagram is basically an exploded...

  • New Grease Seal Leaked After Installation of Bearing Buddies with Hub Kit # 8-248-50UC1
  • Thank you for your recent purchase from etrailer. The grease seal included with this hub kit has an inner diameter of 1.500-inches and an outer diameter of 1.987-inches. This seal should be fully seated into the rear bore of the hub so that it is flush with the back hub surface. The grease seal leak you experienced could come from the seal not being fully seated into the hub, or it could, as you noted, be a result of the over-filling of your Bearing Buddies. If this hub does not have...

  • How to Determine Bearing Race Replacements for a Trailer Hub
  • Since you have the grease seal and bearings already it would seem that you are looking for replacement races. You can measure to find the replacements or you can get the numbers off of them. I attached a picture that shows all of the replacement parts we offer for a trailer hub and how to identify what you have so that it can be replaced.

  • How To Determine Which Bearing Kit Will Work For Trailer
  • Many times when adding grease with the Bearing Buddy, a customer will add too much grease and blow out the rear grease seal which causes just what you say is happening to your wheel. I am sorry but to really be able to tell you what bearing kit you need for your Escort trailer is to disassemble a hub on one side of the trailer and get the bearing part numbers that are stamped on the bearings.There is an inner and outer bearing. With these part numbers I will be able to determine the bearings,...
