Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for This Old Trailer: Electric Trailer Brake Installation Part 1

Alright, today on This Old Trailer, what we are going to do is install electric brakes. Right now this trailer does not have any brakes on it whatsoever, so it has two drag axles. So the first thing that we need to do is go ahead and take off the rear wheels. And then we will go ahead and take off the hubs. At this point we will take off the dust cap on our axle. And basically what you want to do is on this particular unit we have an E-Z Lube cap, so it fits kind of tight. It is a good idea to go ahead and rotate the hub and lightly strike it and then I will just back it off with a screw driver behind the flange. And then pry it off. Alright, let us wipe off the excess grease on the end of the spindle here and we will get to our tang washer. And we will release it so we can back off the castle nut. Alright, we have it cleaned up a little bit. Now right here, this is the tab I was talking about. That is our tang washer. Take this. Push it down flat to the flat spot on our spindle and then you can take the castle nut off. 1:07

Alright, at this point we can go ahead and just remove the entire hub assembly. Alright, now we can go ahead and clean up the spindle so we can have a nice clean area to work with. And then we will start reassembly. Alright, now that we have everything out of the way we can see what is going on. What is going to happen is our backing plate is going to bolt on to this square flange right here with the four holes. Now, if your axle does not have that, what you need to do is get one of these flanges and have it welded on to your axle. Alright, one thing that we need to prepare is the backing plate. We will go ahead and pull the wires up and out of the way and we will route them through the plastic holder. That will keep them safe and out of the way so that they do not get jambed up between the flange and the backing plate itself. Then we will go ahead and install it on the flange. Two things that we want to remember is that the magnet always points towards the ground and, as you can see, the arm that the magnet is connected to, that bow always faces forward. 2:03

And then on the backside we will go ahead and install lock washers and nuts to put everything into place. Okay, let us go ahead and get our hub ready. I will take a finger full of grease and start off by putting it in the race. And then next we will go ahead and our bearing into the packer. You can do this by hand our use a device like we are using here. Pack the bearing full of grease. And then what will happen next is we will go ahead and the bearing inside there and then we will install the seal. In this instance, we actually have an E-Z Lube spindle. So, when we are done with this, we can actually add more grease. Basically, add as much grease as you can to the inside of the hub. If you do not have an E-Z Lube spindle, then just pack it as normal. Alright, at this point here you can actually use a special tool that distributes the force of installing it. Most people do not have this at home, so we are going to use a regular mallet and just lightly tap it in a circle until we get it even all of the way around. You can tell by the tone that you have it all of the way in there and flat. 3:08

Now we will go ahead and flip it over. And go ahead and do the same thing to the races and bearing. With that settled, we will just put a thin film of grease on the spindle and we will go ahead and reinstall the hub. Next we will go ahead and add the flat washer, then the tang washer and then the nut. When we tighten down the nut, what we want to do is run it up as far as we can with the tool. And back it on and off a few times, make sure the hub if fully seated. And then we will go ahead and tighten up the nut until it stops and then we will use whatever tab lines up with the nearest notch in the castle nut. Whichever tab you use, or notch, what you want to do is you do not want to tighten it to use the next one. You want to back it off to use the nearest one. That way, you do not over tighten the bearings. When they get extra pressure on them, they will get hot and wear out faster. And once we have that resolved, we will go ahead and push up the tab back into place. 4:23

Alright, the next thing that we are going to do is go ahead and adjust the brakes. And how we are going to do that is basically we are going to tighten up the brakes while rotating the hub until they just stop. When you can not rotate the hub by hand anymore, then we will go ahead and back it off ten clicks. And then check to see how much drag we have. The end result is we should have a very slight drag on the brakes on the hub. Now, ten clicks will get you pretty close to where you need to be. You may have to adjust it in or out depending on how much drag you get. Alright, we will go ahead and replace the caps on the back side of the backing plate. Then we will go back over to the other side of the axle and repeat the same process. And our next step would be to go ahead and put on the dust caps back on the end of the hubs. And we will just tap them into place. And there are a variety of different methods that you can do that with. We actually use a 2 inch conduit coupling. That actually works great on these types of dust caps. Okay, we have finished our installation of the backing plates and the hubs. And next time on This Old Trailer we will start next on the wiring components.

Fast shipping and top quality parts! Last summer I replaced all four brakes, hubs and bearing sets on my camper with these identical parts, but over-torqued one bearing and experienced an outer bearing failure on one spindle - almost lost the wheel. This unit is the same as I used previously and will replace the hub that was damaged by the bearing failure. I'm just waiting for warmer weather to install it - I won't be as aggressive on tightening the bearing this time.116262


Comments

We have a tightening method that works pretty well for us. We tighten the nut, while turning the hub. As soon as we feel some resistance on the hub turning we stop. Then we back the nut off 1 notch on the castle nut, and secure with the pin or tang washer. Backing off that one notch allows enough breathing room for when the internals and grease warm up and expand a little. Ideally you want about .001 to .007 inches of room and backing off one notch usually falls within that range.

Just recently started using "etrailer" and have found it to be the best "one stop shop" for all things trailer related. My latest order was a hub and drum kit to carry as a spare. I was happy to find out that it was actually OEM. I love everything about this site. Great products, service, support, pricing and prompt shipping. I am a customer for life.110422

Overall , no complaints about the product for the price . Nice hubs but a bit cheap on the bearings . Everything fit fine and works as it should . My only and biggest complaint is the packaging - products this heavy need to be wrapped in cardboard before boxing - the box was severely damaged in transit and I had to replace 3 of the new lug nuts . Otherwise, great service and price can't be beat .99559

This seems like a good product and it was definitely a good price. Everything went together fine. Only problem was that I was missing the lug nuts on one of the drums. The packaging was a little suspect as well but it didn't affect this product. (Two 30 lb drums in a cardboard box playing pinball with two backing plate assemblies half way across the country) I got everything I needed and didn't spend a small fortune...good enough.91660

I ordered a complete electric brake setup for my 6x12 Haulmark trailer and Timbren springs for my Chevy Silverado 1500. Etrailer is great to work with and at this point I have no reason to buy from anyone else!! The brakes are all Dexter parts which is what I wanted. They were very easy to install on the trailer with a bit of help from the etrailer video. The brakes work great and give me a much better feeling about stopping the trailer in a emergency situation and is much easier on my truck brakes. The Timbren springs springs were easy to install after I realized that the installation is not correct for a 2004 Silverado but could be right for a 2011. The springs work very well as long as I have a fair amount of weight on the truck or pulling a trailer with at least 200lbs of tongue wt. When the truck only has 3 or 400 lbs in it which is normal with a cap and bed slide, it rides quite a bit rougher than without the Timbrens. I think air bags would have been a better decision with varying weight loads 47572

Not installed yet, but everything shipped and arrived as expected. Only bought one side, but will probably get the other side from etrailer soon. Looks like the bearings are made in China, but I doubt anyone else in the world is making them any more.46261

Drum is OK, but the included bearings are very low quality and I won't use them. The price was cheap and cheap bearings were of course what is included. etrailer.com should offer a more expensive option of real bearings (Timken) like other places do. 45952

Very pleased with the product. the fit was perfect. what you get for the money is amazing. the only slight drawback is that the bearings don't have any brand or part numbers on them, which leads me to think they may be of lesser quality. Again, what you get for the money is well worth it!43885

I am very happy with the products I purchased and the service I've received from etrailer. I jump for joy when I see the "made in america" label on products. At first I was just going to buy wheel bearings but when I saw how reasonable it was to put a set of brakes on my 5 X 8 covered trailer that I use to carry my motorcycle (Harley Bagger) I couldn't resist. Since the initial purchase I have made other purchases from etrailer with the same excellent customer service and product quality. You get what you pay for! Thank you etrailer. PS: I love the instructional videos also.39526

Great price, fast ship. Ordered on Sat. Night and received on Tues. morning. Product is great quality. Only suggestion I would make is that they should include nuts for the backing plates. ( I ordered those as well) Anyone that is ordering these is usually replacing old rusty ones and can't reuse the old nuts. Other than that misunderstanding everything was great. Would definitely order from etrailer.com again. 29515

Excellent quality and direct fit. Ordering complete backing plates made the install very easy by removing the four bolts on the back of the old plate and installing the new plate. Used a little brake cleaner on the drum and assembled the bearings; and the install was complete. E-Z lube the axle and bearing and done. Couldn't of been a better install and replacement.26128

I would recommend using the same size spindle, just the EZ-Lube version, as your trailer originally came with. That being said, new hub assemblies and bearings should be hand greased when first installed. You have to get a good coating on all the bearings first, then you can use an EZ-Lube spindle to fill up assembly and do the packing for you. You will still have to perform regular maintenance.

  • Drum and Hub Kit, Wheel, and Brake Assembly Recommendation for a 2009 Starcraft 2106
  • I did some research and found that all of the hub and drum assemblies that would fit on your spindle would be 10 inches in diameter, and I also found that if you have a 10 drum you have to have at least a 13 inch rim, so you would need to upgrade to bigger wheels and tires also. The Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly, part # 84546UC3-EZ, that you referenced is the correct hub and drum assembly. For brake assemblies I would recommend a Galvanized 10 inch Marine Brake Assembly, part # 18788, for th

  • Recommended Trailer Wheel Bearing Grease for Dexter Axles
  • Usually when you replace parts that get lubricated, you clean all of the existing grease first before adding any new grease, just in case there is a compatibility issue. Since you are using Dexter axles and replacing components with Dexter parts, the grease will be compatible. For wheel bearing grease, use LubriMatic Disc/Drum Brake and Wheel Bearing Grease, # L11465, or # L11380. This is a LUB-L/M type polyurea-based grease that is compatible with most grease formulas. The only grease formu

  • Can EZ-Lube Hub and Drums be Used on Non-EZ-Lube Spindles
  • This Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ will work on your non-ez lube spindles. The only difference between the ez lube hub and drums and the non-ez-lube hub and drums is the grease cap. The ez lube ones like the # 84546UC3-EZ have a remove-able rubber seal on the cap that allows you to access the grease fitting of the ez-lube spindles. The # 84546UC3-EZ will work for you regardless if you have EZ-lube spindles or not. I also attached a video on trailer brake installation for you to ch

  • What Size Wire Should be Used for Trailer Brake Wiring on a 28 Foot Enclosed Cargo Trailer
  • We recommend using 10 gauge wire, # 10-2-1 for wiring trailer brakes on your 28 foot tandem axle trailer. I would also recommend using solder, # FL0803484, and a soldering iron, # BTSI30, to splice any wires for trouble free operation of the trailer braking system. Cover all connections with electrical tape, # BT66. I have added a drawing I put together to show you how trailer brakes are normally wired on a tandem axle trailer, along with a video on trailer brake wiring and installation. You

  • Will Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ Fit Inside a 13 Inch Wheel
  • The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, part # 84546UC3-EZ, will fit inside a 13 inch wheel. The reason we do not list it as working is because the highest load range 13 inch tire is not rated higher than 3,500 lbs, so the weight capacity will be determined by the tire or the wheel and not the axle. I am including a couple of links to FAQ pages on trailer tires and adding drum brakes to a trailer.

  • Will Changing From Idler Hub to Hub/Drum Change Wheel Offset
  • I ran out to the warehouse and pulled one of the # 84546UC3-EZ hub/drums, which I compared with a typical idler hub with 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern for a 3500 lb axle. I found that with both hubs, the distance from the rear seal surface to the front face of the hub where the wheel would ride is 2-1/2 inches. Since I do not know which hub you are currently using, I checked a few other idler hubs, and found that the 2-1/2 inch distance or thickness was the same. Long story short, your tire s

  • Troubleshooting Weak Electric Trailer Brakes
  • Using too small of wire to carry the brake circuit can cause a number of problems ranging from poor brake performance to the wires melting. I would recommend you replace your current wiring with the recommended gauge wire. We typically recommend 10 gauge wire. You should note that locking up trailer wheels is not an effective way to slow down a trailer. You would want your trailer brakes to brake hard enough that they would almost lock up but never lock up. There are several other reas

  • Hub Assembly Recommendation for a 3500 lb EZ Lube Spindle
  • The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly, # 84546UC3-EZ, that you referenced will fit on a Dexter 3,500 lb EZ Lube spindle, however, this hub and drum assembly was designed to be used with axles that have 10 inch x 2-1/4 inch brake assemblies already mounted. If you do not have brakes, then I would recommend looking into a idler hub like the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly, # 84545UC1-EZ. This assembly will also fit on the Dexter 3,500 lb EZ Lube spindle and has the same bolt pattern as the hub

  • Will Trailer Hub and Drum # 84546UC3-EZ Fit an ALKO 3500 Pound Axle
  • I read through the other question you sent and I can clear some things up for you. First, the ALKO axle brake mounting flanges have a different bolt pattern than do Dexter or similar assemblies when you go up to a 12 inch brake assembly and that is why they will not fit ALKO axles. The top mounting holes on an ALKO mounting flange are wider than they are on a Dexter. But on a 10x2-1/4 inch brake assembly the 4 bolt pattern should be the same. So you can use other 10x2-1/4 inch assemblies on

  • How to Select New Brakes and Hubs for a Load Rite Boat Trailer
  • The 2,600 lb axles on your Load Rite boat trailer are likely de-rated 3,500 lb axles, so you should have no problem using 3,500 lb brakes and drums. The important factor to consider in this situation is that the brakes match the brake mounting flange on your axle and that the hubs/drums match your spindles. Almost all 3,500 lb brake assemblies require a 4-bolt brake mounting flange. The bolt holes on the brake mounting flange should be 2-7/8 inches apart on center. If your brake mounting fla

  • What Type of Wheel Bearing Grease to Use on Older Utility Trailer
  • We offer both traditional petroleum-based wheel bearing grease and also more environmentally-friendly bio-based grease products that are produced from crops. It is permissible to mix the two types. From your description it appears you may have petroleum-based grease in your bearings now. If your utility trailer will be exposed to water (and salt water especially) then I suggest a petroleum grease designed specifically to withstand such a corrosive environment, such as Lubrimatic part # L11404

  • Is Mobile 1 Synthetic Tube Grease Good for Trailer Bearings
  • That is a good question. I suppose it depends on how it is formulated and what its ratings are. Take a look at the FAQ article I have linked that covers everything you ever wanted to know about grease but were afraid to ask. The first part covers what the various letter ratings mean. Ideally you want something that is GC-LB rated. The FAQ also discusses choosing the best grease for an application and a compatibility chart. But when in doubt, clean it out. Meaning that if you are not sure abo

  • Replacement Hub for Enclosed Cargo Trailer with Lippert lc135-d Trailer Axle
  • I looked online trying to find any information about the Lippert LC135-D axle, and was not able to find anything. Your best bet will be to pull off one of the existing hubs, and get the reference numbers off of it. If the inner bearing is L68149 and the outer is L44649, and the grease seal used has an outer diameter of 2.565 inches and an inner diameter of 1.719, your existing hubs have five 1/2 inch diameter wheel studs on a 4-1/2 inch bolt circle, then the # 84546UC3-EZ you referenced will

  • Can the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ be Installed on Either the Left or Right Side
  • The Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ that you referenced can work on left or right sides of a trailer. This gets held on with a castle nut like part # 165686. Check out the video I attached on removing and reinstalling trailer hubs to see how it all comes apart and goes back together.

  • Installing Electric Drum Brakes on Older Statecraft Pop-Up Camper Trailer
  • If you are installing new electric drum brakes on a trailer that does not have them, or if you are replacing/upgrading brakes on a trailer that does already have them, it is advisable for safety reasons to treat both wheels equally. It is not safe to operate a trailer that has working brakes on only one wheel. This could lead to severe sway and so is not recommended. If you are replacing existing brake assemblies it is still recommended that you replace both for the same reason. If you are a

  • Should Trailer Brakes be Put On the Front or Rear Axle of a Tandem Axle Trailer
  • You would put the brakes on the forward axle of a tandem axle trailer and not the rear axle if you had to choose one axle. If you are referring to the video, that particular trailer did not have brake mounting flanges on the forward axle or it could be the one we worked on that only needed new parts on the rear axle. Either way traditionally you would put the brakes on the forward axle.
