By using this grease seal set along with your Bearing Buddy bearing protector, you can be sure that the seal and ring always have adequate grease for fluid operation.

Bearing Buddy Spindle Seal Set

Note: If your axle spindles already have permanent, stainless steel surface rings, you do not need this spindle seal system.

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

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 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

Expert Answers about Spindle Grease Seal Set for L44643 Inner Bearing and 1.980 Bearing Buddy - BB60001                                           Do you have a question about this Seals for Trailer Bearings?

  • 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 remove,

  • 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 view of t

  • 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 on the
