Video Transcript for TryRyde Tang Type Replacement Spindle Washer Review

Today, we're going to show you a replacement tang type spindle washer from True Ride, part number 5-101. This is our tang washer, right here. You can see it's flat. It's got thickness of a 1/32 of an inch and here's our 2 tabs right here, for tangs. What happens is, when you install this, you bend 1 of these tangs up into a slot for your casting nuts, that's what holds your cast nut in place and keeps it from backing off.

It's pretty simple to install, let's go ahead and do it right now. A couple stipulations . Your spindle will have to be a D type spindle, also this is only going to work with a 1 inch spindle. To install it, the flat spot on the spindle, goes where the tangs are, you slide it in place. I'll install the casting nut and we'll go ahead and tighten it down. We'll run our casting nut on until it stops, then you can back it off just a little bit. Then we'll select 1 of the tangs to bend down. We'll use a flatblade screwdriver to bend down the tab over the tangs that fits in the notch, here, on the casting nut.

Get it started, then push down on it and you see, our casting nut is locked into place. It still has movement, like it should, and you're good to go. And that will finish it for the tang type replacement spindle washer from True Ride, part number 5-101.

I placed an order for three spindle washers on a monday evening. I paid an extra $20 for 2nd day shipping. 3 days later I had not received the washers and tracking indicated they had just been shipped. I contacted etrailer to find out what happened. I was told that the first day (tuesday) was a handling day, not a shipping day. There was no explanation given for the delay and I was offered a $4.20 partial refund on shipping. I would have driven to etrailers location two states away and bought the parts in person had I known 2nd day shipping would be given no priority and my parts would sit in the warehouse for two days. I lost hundreds of dollars in business do to this delay and was treated as if it was standard for 2nd day to take a week. Having received items from both coasts using first class mail in 2-3 days consistently this was the worst experience I have ever had paying for expedited shipping. Being treated like I was the problem for asking where my order was, was the icing on this awerful cake. 544363

When repacking the bearings on my trailer, the lock rings were damaged. Unable to find them locally, I checked etrailer and there they were! I submitted my order, which was received in record time, and with the correct item. I do a fair amount of ordering online, and etrailer sets the standard in my opinion. Communication and follow-up from etrailer is excellent. Have recommended etrailer to my friends, and will continue to do so. A+++++!!!!! 305749

Very happy. My parts requirement was very small, but not available around here. Although this part doesnt generally wear in normal use, it has done the exact job so far, and the service/shipping were extraordinary. Next time I need trailer parts, etrailer.com will be where I go!

Please see the attached picture of the broken parts I found when inspecting the wheel bearing on my boat trailer. I was unaware of the tang wheel bearing washer assembly until I visited your website and watched the installation video. I had never seen any other method than the cotter pin assembly to retain the bearing on the axle. I was glad to see the the actual way the washer was manufactured. It didn't seem right that the small tab alone cold retain the bearing. Thank you for the video and the prompt delivery of the needed parts. 10524

Perfect fit. My trailer was borrowed and came back with a replaced hub - while servicing the hubs I noticed that the replaced hub did not have one of these installed. Scary. Ordered one from Etrailer and had it a few days later, shipping was cheaper than running all over town trying to run this part down. 115902


Comments

Thanks for taking the time to follow up with me. Ive only put a few hundred miles of use on the trailer but everything is working great. Ive actually recommended etrailer to my father, a friend of mine and anyone at work who would listen made easier by the fact that I had everything I ordered shipped to my job instead of home. Barring an emergency situation that requires an immediate solution you have my business in the future.

This boat trailer came with Tie-Down brake components, and I believe they were bought out by Dexter. Trying to find these specific part numbers on-line was virtually impossible. Thanks to bits and pieces I could glean from this website I made a calculated guess for proper replacement components -- including these clips and grease seals. Most of my applications used cotter pins, so this configuration is a little more involved if you suddenly find the old part no longer is functional. Best I can tell everything seems to be working correctly. 724606

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Should There Be a Washer on Trailer Spindle Between Spindle Nut and Outer Bearing
  • There really should be a flat washer between the outer bearing of your hub and the nut that holds it on. The washer protects the back side of the bearing from the edges and points on the back side of the spindle nut. The Washer For 1 inch Spindle, # SW1000, is typically used on spindles that have a castle nut, like # 165686, and a cotter pin, # 165649. A D washer, # 5-23, would be used on a spindle that has a flat side and uses the same castle nut and cotter pin setup. A Tongue...

  • Replacement Washer for an EZ Lube Trailer Spindle
  • EZ lube spindles generally use a tang washer to prevent the castle nut from turning. There are different sizes available depending on what is needed. For example, # 5-101 has an inner diameter of 1 inch. Washer # 5-71 has a different design and a 1-1/2 inch inner diameter. Washer # 5-59 is similar but larger with a 1-3/4 inch inner diameter. Sometimes you will see a D-shaped opening on an EZ spindle washer such as # 5-23. On this one the distance from the straight edge to the furthest...

  • Replacement Washer and Nut for EZ Lube Spindle on Escort Boat Trailer
  • The Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type for E-Z Lube # 5-101 is the correct fit for your trailer spindle based on the picture and measurement if you want to use a castle nut like # 165686. The alternative option is the Spindle Nut Kit for EZ Lube Axles # RG05-100 which uses a different style retainer for the nut. Either options will work well for you. You may also want the zerk fitting # GZERK to replace the fitting on your spindle which is a confirmed fit since Dexter uses the...

  • Bearing Kit with LM67048 and L44649 Bearings

  • Causes for Hub Castle Nut to Come Loose After Installing and Using Hubs
  • A tang washer like # 5-101 or # 5-71 has a tab to secure the castle nut on the spindle so that it cannot rotate or back off on the threads. If the tang washer tab (or a cotter pin) is still in place in the notch on the castle nut (as in the linked photo) the nut should not be able to move. The only other place where slack in the hub's fit could develop is at the back side where the grease seal installs. This is the portion of the spindle noted by the arrow in the linked diagram. If the...

  • Availability of Trailer Spindle Washers with Tabs

  • Washers Compatible With 7/8 Inch Castle Nut
  • For castle nut # 165931, for a D washer use part # 5-23 or round washer use part # SW1000. These are both for 1 inch spindles but are compatible with the 7/8 inch castle nut assemblies. You can also use the Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type for E-Z Lube # 5-101.

  • Replacement Spindle Washer Recommendation for a Trailer Spindle
  • Sounds like you have a 1 inch diameter spindle and would need the part # SW1000 as this washer has an inner diameter of 1 inch. There is no specific torque rating for the castle nut that holds your hub in place. We recommend tightening the castle nut down until it stops, and then backing it off slightly. Having it too tight would prevent the hub from spinning.

  • Replacement Hubs and Wheels for Nuway Utility Trailer
  • Sorry to hear about your bad experience but we can help you. New hubs must use the same bearings as the ones that were stolen to ensure they will fit on your spindles. New wheels must also use the same bolt pattern to ensure they will fit on the hubs. Since you don't have your hubs you can measure your spindles using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to determine what bearings will fit. If you refer to the linked image you will see the points on the spindle that you need to measure...

  • Although we don't have a kit that includes the bearings/seal all in one package, you can certainly obtain the parts separately. You'll need: # 25580 inner bearing and its # 25520 race # LM67048 outer bearing and its # LM67010 race # 21325 Double Lip Grease Seal (cross references to the NOK seal you referenced) # 5-101 spindle washer # 165649 cotter pin I'll link you to our FAQ article about replacing bearings, races and seals.

  • Method for removing and Installing Tang-Style Spindles Washers
  • A replacement tang-style spindle washer like part # 5-101 is intended to be installed behind the castle nut and have its prongs bent down so that they prevent the castle nut from rotating on an E-Z Lube type spindle. The castle nut holds the washer in place, of course, and the washer's prongs fold down into the gaps in the nut to prevent it from loosening on the spindle. The removal and re-installation processes are shown for you in the linked video.

  • How to Find the Correct Idler Hub Replacement for Boat Trailer
  • In order to find the correct wheel bearings, you can take apart your hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you would need to use a digital caliper such as # PTW80157 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see exactly where you need to measure. I've also added a link to a...

  • Looking for Replacement Bearings for Axle Using # L68149 Inner Bearing
  • The # L68149 bearing you mentioned is most commonly used with the # L44649 outer bearing, but it is sometimes used with the # LM67048 outer bearing, as well. If you can't read the reference number of your outer inner bearing, you can always use a digital caliper to measure the diameter of the spindle where that bearing rides. If that diameter is abut 1.06, you'll need the L44649 bearing. If the diameter you get is about 1.25 inches, you'll need the # LM67048. The # BK2-100 bearing...

  • How to Pick Out Spindle Washer for Trailer Hub
  • The correct spindle washer you would need is going to depend on what the spindle calls for. There are various washers we offer for various styles of spindles. For just a standard 1 inch washer we have the # SW1000. Of if you have an EZ lube style spindle we have the part # 5-101 which is the most popular option. I attached a link to a page that has all of the washers we have. The part # DL21792 comes with a cotter pin, but no washer.

  • Tang Washer for 1-1/6 Inch Spindle
  • We do not have tang washers for 1-1/6" spindles, however, it is possible you might need a washer for a 1" diameter spindle, because 1-1/6" is the same diameter as bearing # L44649, which goes to 1" spindles. I recommend double checking with a digital caliper just to make sure you don't need a 1" washer such as Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type # 5-101. I've added a link to our page with each of our spindle washers for you as well.

  • Installing TruRyde Replacement Tang Type Spindle Washer
  • The Replacement Spindle Washer # 5-101 referenced in your question is designed for 1 inch, D type spindles. The washer will install right between the castle nut and outer bearing, and the tang on the washer is bent up to prevent the nut from turning. There is not an additional washer between this and the outer bearing on the hub. I have attached an installation video that you can also check out.

From your measurements it sounds like you have a popular # 84 spindle which uses bearings # L68149 and # L44649 for the inner and outer respectively.

  • Is 10-19 Grease Seal Acceptable Replacement for 17413 Seal on Shorelandr Boat Trailer
  • According to my research, the 17413 grease seal would fit a 1.75 inch shaft, and has an OD of 2.565 inches. The 10-19 is very close, with an ID of 1.719 inches, but it's not close enough to be an acceptable substitute. Boat trailer manufacturers are well known for using oddball or proprietary parts.

There are several types of spindle washers available depending on the spindle configuration on your trailer.

I recommend using a set of digital calipers to take the measurement because it needs to be as accurate as possible and traditional measuring devices are not quite accurate enough.

  • Availability of 1 Inch Keyed Spindle Washer

  • How to Choose Replacement Spindle Washers
  • You can identify the correct D-washer for your spindles by confirming the axle capacity on the axle's identification sticker or plate. If you have a 3500-lb to 5200-lb axle (or a regular duty 6000-lb axle) you can use # 5-23. If your axle is rated for 6000-lbs (heavy duty), 7000-lbs or 8000-lbs or is a pre-1989 9000-lb axle) you can use part # 5-57. If you have E-Z Lube spindles you can use tang washer # 5-101. All of these have a 1-inch inner diameter.

We do offer other replacement spindle washers, like part # 5-71 for 1-1/2 inch spindles, and part # 5-59, which is for spindles that measure 1-2/4 inches.

  • The Replacement Spindle Washer, # 5-101, was designed specifically for E-Z Lube axles, so that should be the correct washer for you. You can make sure that your spindle has a 1 inch diameter at the end where the washer will be. It sounds like you have a #84 spindle which is for 3500 pound E-Z lube axles. The correct seal would be # RG06-050, for a pair of double lip seals. To be sure, you would need to find the bearing numbers of the inner and outer bearings. The numbers are stamped...
