Video Transcript for Kodiak Disc Brake Kit Installation

Today on our boat trailer, we'll be installing the Kodiak disc brake kit with ten inch hub and rotor, part number K2HR35D. To begin our install, we'll first need to remove the wheels, and then the old hub and drum assemblies. To remove the wheel, remove the lug nuts and secure it. To remove the hub drum assembly, we'll start by removing the dust cap, and underneath the dust cap there will be a cotter pin.Go ahead and pull the cotter pin, then we'll remove the castle nut from the axle. Once we remove the castle nut we can go ahead and remove the hub and drum assembly, leaving our old drum brakes and backing plate. For install we'll also need to remove this backing plate, which secures the wheel cylinder. We'll go ahead and remove the brake line from the wheel cylinder first.

After we remove the brake line, we can then remove the four fasteners that secure the backing plate to the axle. With our four fasteners removed, we'll go ahead and take the backing plate off and set it aside; it will not be reinstalled. However, do hang on to your hardware, because we'll be reusing that to secure the caliper bracket to the axle. We'll go ahead and put our caliper bracket on the axle now. Once again we're reusing the manufacturer's hardware, running our bolt through the axle, then through our caliper bracket, andsecuring with the locknut. Next, we'll need to install our new hub rotor assembly.

We'll be reusing the inner and outer bearing, washer, and castle nut from the hub drum assembly. Let's go ahead and start removing these items from our hub drum assembly. The castle nut we removed earlier, we'll go ahead and clean it up and set it aside. We'll repeat the same process with the washer that sits between the castle nut and the outer bearing. The outer bearing will be free, as it's only held in by the castle nut, so we can go ahead and take that out, clean it up also. To clean it up, we're just going to be removing some of the excess old grease.

For the inner bearing we'll have to flip the hub drum assembly over, and remove the grease seal. The grease seal will hold the inner bearing in to the brace on the hub drum assembly, and our hub rotor assembly. Once we have the inner bearing removed, we'll go ahead and clean it up, and then we're going to pack our bearings before we install them. To pack them we'll use a grease packing kit, drop the bearing in position and squish it with the cone, which will shove new grease up through the bearing, pushing out the old grease. We'll go ahead and take our packed bearing and put it on the inside of our hub rotor assembly, and then install the grease seal. We'll be using a seal driver assembly; however, a piece of flat wood like a two by four, that's large enough to cover the entire seal surface, will work in a pinch.

With our seal installed, we go ahead and put our new hub rotor assembly up onto the axle. We'll slide it back and seatit into place. Next, we'll go ahead and take our outer bearing and repack it also, the same way we did the inner bearing. Once it's been packed, we'll go ahead and put it over the axle, into the hub rotor assembly, and seat it intoposition. Then we'll follow with our washer and castle nut. We'll tighten the castle nut down to seat the bearings, and then back it off slightly, as you do not want extreme, constant pressure at all times for this style bearing. Once we have the bearing seated and our castle nut in place, which means that it will be lined up with the predrilled holes in the axle, so that we can slide our cotter pin through the castle nut, through the predrilled holes in the axle, out the other side of the castle nut, and bend the tabs over to secure it. With that secured, we're going to go ahead and install the new dust cap. This will also be the removable grommet to grease this particular axle, as it's an easy lube axle. Next, we're ready to install the caliper; however, this application, it will be necessary to thread the brake line directly into the caliper, so that can be done easier off of boat. Setting it on a flat surface, we'll go ahead and thread the brake line directly into the caliper and tighten it down. We'll go ahead and take the caliper, set it over the rotor into position, lining up the sliders with the predrilled holes in the caliper bracket, which we've previously installed. Once it's lined up, we'll put the sliders into place and tighten them down. Next, we'll need to connect our new flexible hose to the manufacturer's steel line. In most cases we'll go ahead and cut away a portion of the steel line that the hose will make up, reflare the line, mount it with a mounting bracket, and cut it at the necessary length. However, because of previous work done to this line, the inner nut on the brake line is not in the best shape, so we're going to go ahead and just replace it with a small section of new line. The new eighth inch line on this application can be purchased at your local auto parts store. This short piece of line will work perfectly to gointo the brake tee, here mounted into the axle. We'll go ahead and thread it in, and secure it. Next, we'll take our bracket, put it over the line, and thread the line into the hose. Once we have it started, we can then go and take the bracket, put it in position on our flexible hose, and secure it to the axle with our self-tapping screw. Once secured, we'll go ahead and put the mounting clip in place, which will hold our brake hose to the bracket. Once the clip is installed, we'll then go ahead and continue tightening down the line to the hose. With the driver's side done, we're going to go ahead and repeat the same process on the passenger's side. Note on the opposite side we will not have to replace the entire steel line. In these cases, we can simply cut the line as necessary to length. We'll take the nut that went into the back of the wheel cylinder previously, install it onto the line that will stay on the boat, and then redouble flare the steel line. A double flare kit can be rented or borrowed from your local auto parts store. Follow the procedures of the double flaring kit. Once the line's been double flared, we'll go ahead and repeat the same procedure of installing the bracket onto the line, threading the line into the hose, and then securing the bracket to the axle. Then tighten down the line to the hose. Secure the bracket clip that will hold the hose in place. With all our components installed, we'll need to bleed the air out of the braking system. To do this, we'll open up the bleeder on the brake caliper and remove the cap from the master cylinder, and we'll also make sure we have a full master cylinder. After a bit of time, the air will self-bleed out of the bleeder, assisting in getting the air out of our system. After you gravity bleed it, it's recommended to do a vacuum assist or manual power bleed. Once we've bled all the air out of the system, we're ready to hit the road. That will complete the install of the Kodiak disc brake kit, part number K2HR35D, on our boat trailer. .

I ordered Dakota 225 brake caliper. It worked as it should. The problem is that I had bought two calipers and two rotors 3 years ago from E trailer and installed them. They worked but on seized up (would not release from the rotor) and overheated. I had to place the overide pin in my surge actuator and drive tow the boat and trailer . I would think the caliper would last more than three years with less than 25 trips to the lake. 529597

This is actually the second time I purchased one of these calipers. The first time was about a month back when one froze on me due to water in the brake system. Of course this happened the day before I was going on vacation. While very happy with the quality of the caliper it was the customer service that was most impressive. I called in a panic in the early afternoon to see if I could get the part overnight. The sales consultant went way beyond what he could have done and hand delivered my order to shipping department so it would get out yet that day. My point here is that you can buy good parts anywhere on the web these days but the reason I came back and will keep coming back was the service I got (get) from eTrailer's employees. That extra effort allowed me to leave on time for vacation with my family. Oh and yeah Kodiak makes good stuff. Everything installed well and is working great. Thank you! 411520

The caliper arrived later in the day but I managed to install it and get a guy to help me bleed the lines before he went home. Kodiak brakes are the best. I have noticed pad separation in the last pair of pads I had to replace; but I believe that is from the heat from the stuck caliper. 629278

  • Bleeding Trailer Brakes After Installing Kodiak 225 Disc Brake Calipers
  • When you bleed the brakes on your trailer after installing the Kodiak Calipers # KDBC225DAC, you will want to start with the brake that is furthest away from the actuator. Of the two bleeder valves, you will want to use the bleeder valve that is on the top. If you are manually bleeding the brakes, it is easiest to use a clear jar to collect the brake fluid in so it is easier to see when there are no more bubbles in the fluid. Be sure to open the top bleeder valve when you are bleeding...

  • How to Determine Right Hand and Left Hand Brake For Disc Brake Caliper Installation
  • Yes, you would look at the trailer from the rear to determine right hand or left hand. The terms right hand and left hand come from right turn and left turn. The right hand brake is on the right side as if you were making a right turn. The Kodiak Disc Brake Caliper, # KDBC225DAC, can be used on either side. Kodiak designed the caliper so that there are multiple bleeder valves allowing you to switch them depending on which side you need the caliper on. .

  • Which Brake Assembly to Start with When Bleeding Trailer Hydraulic Brakes
  • Sounds like your question is related to the trailer brake bleeding process where you are supposed to pick the assembly that is the furthest from the actuator to start with. Basically if you have more than one trailer axle you pick the rear-most axle and then start with the assemblies there. Once you've bled either assembly on that axle you then move to the one in front of it. Of the two bleeder valves, you will want to use the bleeder valve that is on the top. That's because air bubbles...

  • Replacement Parts for Wheels and Disc Brakes Getting Too Hot on Boat Trailer
  • A stuck caliper will absolutely cause the brakes/hubs to heat up like you described as it's going to be constantly engaged during travel even when you aren't hitting the brakes. This is the most likely cause of the excessive heat so it's definitely where I recommend starting.

  • Theoretically if you just have some surface rust on your rotors it would be knocked off after a drive that included a couple solid braking events. If you still notice rust on the rotors after towing the trailer then this could indeed be an indication that there's an issue with the brakes or simply that the rust you found is a bit deeper than surface level. If the rotors are badly rusted then your best option is just to replace them completely. I have attached a link that will take you...
