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.

Perfect Fit.. exactly what I was looking for



- 5-101
by:

Exact replacement. Fit perfect on my EZ-Lube spindle to do the critical job of locking bearing nut in place.



- 5-101
by:

EXACTLY what I NEEDED for my trailer! First I went to the local Auto parts store, the first question they asked 'What is the make and model of your car". I should of know better. First question from etrailer... how many do you want! THANKS etrailer you are the best source for my trailer parts. ALSO It was delivered on time!



- 5-101
by:

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.



- 5-101
by:

I was very pleased with the delivery speed and price from etrailer. In addition to that the new locking washers appeared to be manufactured from thicker material. I believe the thicker material makes a quality and long lasting part. The last observation I want to tell you is the part was not available from local auto parts store where I reside. The part appeared immediately on your website. You get a five star rating.

Order came quickly, the only issue was they packed ring L44610 instead of Bearing L44649. I was able to use my old bearings L44649 as they were still in good shape, so I’m all set. It all works and that was my goal.



- 5-101

I will keep these with my trailer supplies for when I have to pull my hub/drum for brake inspection and reassembly.

Exactly what I ordered. Came in a decent amount of time. I would gladly pay more for bearings, races and seals from USA, Canada, EU, etc from etrailer if and when they can find producers. This is the place to go when you’re not sure precisely what you need. They’ll walk you through it, no sweat.

just what i needed on boat trailer axle

Before ordering these Replacement parts on etrailer for my 2002 boat trailer I made attempt searches on other sites and much to my surprise nobody could match the price or the complete inventory of my needs that etrailer offered. These folks are the real deal

Excellent item that's hard to find local. Great prices and service with etrailer.

by:

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+++++!!!!!


Comments
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!

by:

An odd, yet necessary, item when doing bearings on a boat trailer (it locks the castle nut in place). I live in an "inland" area and while local bearing providers stocked the bearings, they didn't stock the lock washer. Fortunately etrailer did and they were inexpensive and promptly shipped.


Comments
The product is one of those place and forget things. Having been installed, it has never given me any problems which is the nature of such place and forget things. So, still pleased.

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.


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.

The Spindle washer is good quality and the proper size. It took 9 days to arrive via free shipping. That was a bit excessive. -Steve

I have made several purchases from etrailer. All the items have been as described and worked perfectly for my application. All the staff I have had interactions with have been knowledgeable and very professional. Great parts, Great people, Great prices!!!



- 5-101
by:

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.



- 5-101
by:

Would rather have old fashion cotter-key, but that would eliminate the EZ Lube function. I always worry about the brittleness of the tab washer failing on the road.

I never had a problem with etrailer, the price and quality is great.you justhave to measure your parts correctly and order.the only problem I had was using the promo code for discount

  • Fit of D Washer and Tang Washer for 1-1/16 Inch Spindle
    The washer # 5-101 is the 1 inch diameter standard size and there is not anything that is 1-1/16 inches as you stated. This washer will work well along with the D Washer for EZ Lube Spindles # 5-23 for your spindle and bearings.

  • Tang Washer Recommendation for Use on Trailer Spindle with L44649 Bearings
    We currently offer several different spindle washers and I have included a link to them for you. However, none of then have an inner diameter of 1-1/16 inches. 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. You mentioned that the trailer takes L44649 bearings. If both the bearings are the same size then the washer associated with the size spindle that takes...

  • Wheel Bearings for Old Moore Sled Trailer
    I don't have any information available that would tell me which bearings your trailer used, but I can certainly help you figure it our for yourself. Closely examine the old bearings, looking for a part number engraved on the bearing cage. Get the numbers off both the inner and outer bearing. If you can't read the reference number, you can use an accurate measuring device like a digital caliper to measure the diameter of the spindle where the inner and outer bearings ride, as well as...

    The TruRyde Replacement D Tang Spindle Washer # 5-101 that you referenced has a 1-inch inner diameter to fit on 1-inch diameter spindles. All such items that we offer share this same 1-inch inner diameter, such as parts # 5-23 and # 5-57. The points on your spindles where the bearings ride can have a larger diameter than the exterior point where you will apply the D-washer. Please refer to the linked photo.

  • 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...

  • Tang Washer for E-Z Lube
    From my research it looks like the Dexter 005-101-00 are tang washers for E-Z lube spindles before 2002. While that's not the specific application of Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type for E-Z Lube # 5-101, this part may still work for you. The # 5-101 washer has a 1" inner diameter and will fit on 1" diameter spindles. I've added a link to a video review of this part for you to check out as well.

  • 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.

  • Tang Spindle Washer With 1 inch Diameter
    The only tang spindle washer we offer with a 1 inch diameter is TruRyde part # 5-101 for an E-Z lube spindle. It does have two prongs to bend down over the castle nut. The Redline washer part # 5-71 is 1-1/2 inches in diameter. I have attached a video for your reference.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The Washer For 1 inch Spindle, # SW1000, is typically used on spindles that have a castle nut, like # 165686, and a cotter pin, # 165649.

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.
