Video Transcript for Trailer Bearings Races Seals and Caps Rebuild

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take you through the rebuild process on a couple of hubs. We've got an idler hub, and here we've got a hub and drum assembly. Works with electric rigs, but this can also work for just standard discs, if you've got a disc brake style setup.Basically what we're going to show you is how to get all of the bearings out. How to remove the seal. How to remove the race's if they're damaged, then get them replaced in the proper manner. We'll show you how to use an easy loop hub, which we have here.The first thing we are going to need to do is, get the grease cap off the end.

It can have either a rubber plug in it like this one does, or it can be a solid metal cap.These are pressed fit in there, basically by tapping on them on the back side. To remove them, a deadbolt hammer is typically what we're going to use. We're just going to start tapping as we go around. You'll see a little separation start right here, and slowly it'll work it's way off.Now the next step's going to vary a little bit depending on your axle setup. Do you see this is going to have a keeper that goes around the nut.

And that prevents that from being backed off, or removed. A lot of times you'll have a castle nut, which will have just little tabs that stick off, and there will be a cotter pin that passes through it. Just depending on your application, you need to get the keeper for the nut off. This style we just kind of pry out. A cotter pin you would just remove of course.Once we have that off ...

We'll start to take off the nut here, and the washer that's in behind it. Now yours should look a whole lot more dirty than this. There should be a lot of grease packed in, and through the hub, this one's brand new. We thought it'd be nice to show you the components before the grease was on .. Of our washer that comes off.And then here we're going to have our outer bearing.

Continue to pull that. We're gonig to have our inner bearing here. That sits in the backside of the hub. And we didn't put it in yet, we will show you how to put it in. But a seal would typically be covering the backside here. We'll show you how to use a seal removal tool, or another tool. To get that pried up and out. To get an access to that inner bearing.Now for a drum style like this, that process for disassembly is going to be just the same. One thing to keep in mind if you're using a disc brake setup. You'll have to remove the caliper before the disc is going to come off.Now once we have the spindle exposed, as we said this is going to be really greasy. We want to get all the grease removed, and the first thing we'll do is inspect it. We want to make sure that it looks just like what we have here. Everything's nice and smooth. We don't see any kind of discoloration, or any marring on the metal. Indicating that our bearing's got hot.If you do have any of those symptoms, at this point it's time to replace those bearings. You don't want to repack them. Get new bearings, and put in there. You might have a bearing that's come apart in here. Another surface to ensure is in good condition, is where your seal is going to go. That helps seal all the grease inside of our hub. With a damaged or broken seal, that grease is going to seep out. Either out of the hub, or in this case into our brake assembly.Now if your axle has brakes, we're also going to check the disc. Make sure it doesn't have any issues, or your hub. And this is going to be a hub and drum assembly. The brakes are going to ride on this machine surface. You're going to check that for signs of excessive heat, discoloration, or cracking. And this is our magnet surface. We'll check that surface for the same issues.Now inside the hub regardless if it's a disc brake, it's a drum brake like this. Or just a standard idler style hub. You're going to have an outer race. Would be right here, it's a small tapered piece of metal your bearing sits in, and rotates on. That's basically the outer portion of the bearing.You have the same thing here on the backside. This is called the inner race. Now if those show any signs of wear, overheating, or cracking. Those are also something we'll need to replace, which we'll show you how to do in just a minute.Now, with your brake assembly exposed, if you do have electric brakes like we have here. It's a good idea to check all the components for wear, cracking, maybe missing pieces. Check your pad thickness to make sure those are in good shape. Basically if you have a non working brake assembly and you put everything back together, you're just going to have to take it apart and do it all over again to get back to the brake assembly. This gives you a really good option to be able to change them out.And most applications are going to use a four, or maybe a five bolt flange to hold them in place. And you'll just remove the lock nuts, or sometimes you'll have a hex nut with a lock washer. You want to remove those, and then simply slide your assembly off after you cut the wiring.The friction material itself should also be checked for any kinds of cracking, or overheating. If you have any grease inside the system at all, it's likely it's gotten on those pads. It's a good idea to get those changed. Now as far as the removal of the races go, it's going to be just the same whether we're using an idler style hub like we have here. A drum brake like we have here. You can basically see where the idler is, here in the middle of the hub. It's going to go all the way around there, and we just have this extra material here to provide our braking surface.Now if you're doing a disc brake style job again, it's going to be just the same here with the races living inside of the actual hub portion. You'll just have the discs there for the brakes to make contact. We're going to use this little bit smaller one, it's a little bit easier to manage to show you how to get these out. We've talked about where the races are. The outer here, the inner being closer to the inside, but on the backside of the race there's a little lip. That lip's meant to stick out just a little bit further than the hub, and provide us an area to put our tool on, and help to drive that out.If you look all the way through there on that inner race, you'll see that little lip that sticks out just from the hub slightly, and it gives us enough area to use our tool on. Now generally to remove these you're going to use a punch, similar to this. Some guys will use a screwdriver. Or a piece of pipe. If you have a piece of pipe that's small enough to fit inside of that diameter, you can take that down through and allow it to rest on that lip.Use our punch, and then just need a hammer. And we'll start working that out. We're going to tap all the way around. Kind of equally, and evenly apply the force to get it to come on out of the bottom for us.You can see now as it starts to come out there's going to be a little gap created between the hub and the race. And we can just keep going, bringing it on out. Then you can inspect the inside of the hub surface there. Make sure no damage or anything has occurred, and repeat that same process for the outer race if you plan on removing and replacing that one.Now in the outer flat edge, you can see we're going to have our tapered edge on this side. If we roll our race over to the flat side, typically there's going to be a manufacturers part number on there. That will help you identify which race it is, that you need to go back in your system. If those are rubbed off, worn off, if you can't read them. You can measure the outside, to outside diameter of the race here. It's a good idea to use a micrometer to get it exact.Now here's your basic micrometer. And again, the outside of the race is what we're going to need to measure. You want to go . I set the thickest point there. Looks like this one's going to be about 1.98. That's going to be the measurement you'll want to supply.Now while we've got this out, let's also look at the proper way to measure our bearing. Instead of the outside for the bearing, we need to measure the inside diameter. That's going to be pretty simple. Let's pull that out, find the largest measurement we can. Which here, looks like it's going to be 1.03. With that information, we'll be able to get the correct bearing, and the correct race, so they'll fit together properly and make a full bearing kit for us.Now here's the race, we're going to show you how to get this put back in. Basically just going to press fit inside of our hubs. We need to get it down on there. Kind of like that. And you'll have a couple options. A lot of times you're going to see do it yourself or at homer, just going to use a wooden block. Just place it on there. That's going to get you started, but at that point you'll struggle in getting it to go all the way down into it's seat.Now to take care of that problem, there are several seal drivers that are available. Seal and race drivers that are available out there on the market. It's designed to fit down inside of our race, inside of our hub and get it down there where it needs to go. This is part number ptw83020, has several different sizes, even if you have multiple trailers it's going to do the job.Now the side with the angle on it, is designed to fit down inside of our race. If we use the other side, that's going to be for driving your seal into place. Just want to hold it, and take it on in with your hammer. You'll see, you just want to insure that our race is all the way up against that line on the hub where it's supposed to mate to.Now when it comes time to pack your bearings you're going to have several different ways of doing this. You can just use your hand, is the traditional method. That's going to be the method probably reserved for the very occasional trailer work kind of situation. If you do it once or twice a year, probably get away with it that way.Next you would go to a, kind of a sandwich funnel style almost. If you look inside of there, you can see the bearing. It's located between the two pieces. Just use a grease gun. Start filling that with grease, and that's going to fill our bearing for us. And the third, with this one you're just going to place your bearing down and in. It should be pretty close to center. And then we've got our cone her that's going to go down and secure that.Now I think this style, wastes a little bit more grease than what this style will. This has a dust cap. You can see, you can keep your grease in there, put your dust cap on there and save it for later use. This will be if your going to do it every couple years. And this particular style would be if you're a more regular user.Let's start by showing you how to use a bearing packer. Similar to this. Again, we've just got our grease inaudible 00:11:07 here on the top. And then just slowly start to fill it. Now I like this style quite a bit. I think even regular users might enjoy it, because you can get a really quick visual look at that bearing. You're not going to have to overdo it, or have to much grease.You can kind of see in there now, we're starting to get grease to come out of it. Couple more pumps, we'll be good. You can see we've got grease coming out all the way around. Where all of our bearings are. Got a little bit of excess there. Just take that around the outside of it. And then we should be able to lift it off. And now you can see what we we're talking about. Just a little bit of excess there, that you're just going to wind up wasting.Now we'll take our bearing, we're going to place it right down in our race. And then we'll cap off the back with our seal. Right now our seal's going to fit in just like our race did. It's going to have a little bit of a pressure fit to it. Now very often in this situation, I see people using the four by four method. Kind of here, just placing that on and tapping it. As an option though, if you do have one of these. You can see that's designed to fit right on the top of the seal. And help drive it in.The biggest thing here is, just going to be getting it driven in squarely. You can see, this side's in a little bit further than this side. I'm going to start this side first. Now since we didn't have the opportunity to show you before, we're going to take a look at pulling a seal. Now this is a seal puller, we carry this on our website part number ptw1219. This is meant to hook underneath the seal. And then you kind of pull up on it, and just like our race you'll have to work all the way around that edge. Just bringing it out a little at a time.If you don't have that available. Another option would be a screwdriver. You just kind of get that under the seal, and turn it. And see, that'll allow you to also pop that out. We've taken care of our race. Our inner bearing. Our seal. The last component, before we put our hub back in place is going to be our outer bearing. Now with this bearing, I'll show you the hand packing method.This is definitely . Slightly dirtier method than the bearing packer. When we get grease on our hand we want to look at the larger side of the bearing. This is the smaller side. We have a larger side In between the inside and outside there's a gap. We can see our rollers in there. We want to grab that, and use that gap and shove grease inside of it. Now this is going to take a little bit, you want to work in the same spot until you get the grease pushed all the way through. We can see on the top there we've got a little bit starting to come through.And once we push it in the bottom, and you see it start coming out the of the top in those little drips, it's going to indicate that, that section's fully packed. Just need to work all the way around their outside edge now and do the same thing. Alright, once that's all the way around . The bearing will be ready for use.Now one more thing I like to do. We can see our inner bearing there, and our outer bearing. Well between the two, got a pretty big gap in there. If you'll take a . Pretty good amount of grease. We're just going to go all the way around. See how we can go all the way around the inside and just line that really well. The more grease we have in here, the less chance we have of any moisture getting in there, which can cause corrosion, rust, pitting. Pretty much things we do not like when it comes to bearings, races, and hubs.Put plenty of grease in there. And then this one does have the easy lube spindle, that'll even fill it in more. Now we can get our assembly slid on. I like to keep my thumbs on that outer bearing, just to prevent it from . inaudible 00:15:28 pushed off there. Now we can put on the original hardware that we removed, in taking off our hub the first time. In our case, we had our washer and our nut.Now most commonly you'll see pliers similar to this being used. We basically want to get that tightened down. Once it's fully tightened down you'll feel some resistance in the hub. We back it off just slightly. That'll give us a little bit more freedom of motion there. Something you don't want however . Is any movement in, or out on your hub. You want to be sure that everything is compressed, and you don't have what's called end play. Which would be the play in and out.Once we've got that set, then you'll put on whatever tight keeper yours came with. Get that put back in place. Now with an easy lube style hub, you're going to place your grease gun on the end, and then you can just fill the remainder of that hub up.Now for your typical applications, you're either going to have a solid cap, or a cap that'll have a rubber plug in it. A solid cap's going to be for an axle without the grease inaudible 00:16:51 here on the end. Goes on there. Just knock it on with your rubber mallet. Same with the one with the plug. Just gives you a removable area there, be able to cap that off.We'll show you how to put that on. Now as alternatives as well, a lot of times on boat trailers and marine kind of situations. You'll see a bearing buddy. This is going to apply a little bit of pressure on the grease, you'll fill it up. This kind of comes out just a little bit. That applies constant pressure on the grease to make sure we don't have any air, or anything like that. Then there is also an oil bath hub available. Now this is going to be for use with seals that are going to be designed specifically for oil bath use. You'll have to change that seal.We're using a double lip seal. There are also single lip seals available. Of course a double lip seal is going to give you just a little additional security. Keep that in mind when you order. But let's get this knocked on there now so you can see how that works. We just want to take the cap, we're going to center it. This is going to be very similar to what we did with the seal. And then just gently start tapping it around the outside. And it'll seep down on there for you.It's really going to be the same thing that you'll do with any of the end caps. Now with this side done, it's a good idea to take care of all the other hubs. Get them all on the same maintenance schedule. And as long as you'll periodically check the grease, take your trailer out for a trip occasionally. Just to keep everything lubricated. It should extend the life of these parts, and give us years of good service.

Grin and bear it with this Deluxe Bearing Packer! It has sturdy steel construction which makes this a valuable tool. Makes packing trailer bearings quick and easy. Optional manual function may be converted for use with power lube equipment.


Perfect replacement for my trailer. etrailer is only place I buy trailer related parts from. Always excellent service. Fastest shipping in the industry.


I've shopped etrailer over many years...great products, great prices, great service. Needed this bearing packer to really clean and repack the bearings on an aluminum trailer that goes behind my Jeep. This is well made from metal and will outlast me or my Jeep ;-))))



just fine, does what its supposed to do and not break doing it.


The complete shipment arrived on time as usual for However, the label was missing the name of my business and the Owner/Proprietor of the mail service I use was not going to accept the packages for lack of a name. The box number was printed the the name section.

The Owner/ Proprietor is this very small town is the ONLY mail service we have here. So, thinks very powerful by reading every label and wielding her monopolistic power upon everyone. I pleaded with her to let me have package, and she finally agreed, if I would chew your butts for missing the name

Here in this town of [town] Montana we have named her the "Mail Nazi"!

I suggest you be conscience of proper mail labeling.

Otherwise, thank you for your consistent service and prompt customer service!


It's not very often that a product makes life so much easier and exceeds expectations like this simple but effective product. Instructions are incomplete (they basically say "put the bearing packer together with the bearings in the middle"), but eTrailer's instructions were a great supplement. First and every time I used it, grease came out evenly around the entire bearing which gives me great peace of mind that my bearings are correctly packed. Enough grease is left over after removing the bearings to spread around on the bearings after they're on the hubs. A fantastic time-saving product at a great price.


My camper that I just bought used was in dire straights. Bought new races,bearings,seal package with bearing buddies. Also bought bearing packer tool and seven piece bearing tool. What a breeze. Had all four wheels done in about an hour and a half.
Thanks etrailer. ROAD TRIP AHEAD.


I bought this and figured I'd give it a try. If you don't have the bearing sitting perfect the grease seems to miss its target. I ended up packing my bearings by hand the ole fashion way. It might be good if you have to do a bunch.


Not a fan of this style packer after giving it a try. Inevitably my bearing was a bit off center which meant it sent more grease out one side. I picked up a hand press packer that I think works much better, can use bulk grease, and has less grease waste.


The concept is good but I had difficulty getting the grease to penetrate the bearings without coming out from under the top and bottom plates


Everything arrived in good order and condition. What has really impressed me with etrailer is the customer service. I received emails from real people answering my questions and keeping me up to date with my order status. I even got a phone call from the shipping person making sure they facilitated my order in the best way possible for me. Count me as being really impressed!!!! I will be ordering all of my trailering supplies from your company in the future. I wish more companies ran this way. Great experience!


The first time I tried to use this bearing packer I wasn't sure if it was working or not. I was using a 3oz. grease gun to load it and never saw grease coming out of the bearing. I took it apart and there was just a big blob of grease on the inside ring of the bearing. I just used that grease to pack the bearing by hand. The next day I watched the video on it and saw that a 14oz. grease gun was being used. I had put it together properly, but apparently needed to use more grease. I'll try it again when I feel like wasting some more grease.


LOVE this product. I packed my bearings for the first time so I wanted to make sure I had the right tools. This product worked great!! I had no issues at all and all 8 bearings were packed perfect after using this tool. Love you guys and your great videos!!


Etrailer fulfilled this order in a very timely way and the product works as advertised. I continue to look to Etrailer for all my trailering and RV maintenance products.


never used one before watched the video,ordered it and it does work just as the video says,was inpressed ,put new bearings in my boat trailer and this packing tool did do the job well i rate it as high as i can go ,


Threads on bottom assembly was a little messed up but got it working. Pushed grease great through the bearings not wasting grease by hand packing.


Very easy to order, tracking system is superior. Shipment and delivery were very fast, with product extremely well packaged. Superior purchase experience.


The hole in the stud was not drilled all the way through. I had to drill it and take time to clean out all metal shards before completing work. Disappointed that it was not made in USA. I could have bought this at local TSC five dollars cheaper. I purchased it through Etrailer because I thought it would be better quality. My mistake!!


This should take most of the mess out of packing the bearings with the Zerk fitting. Haven't used yet but looks like a boon for the job.


Works as advertised. Small investiment in this tool pays back with making it much easier to pack bearings with grease.


this bearing packer is great. it makes a nasty job easy.
simple design .
good job


This item broke after the second time it was used. The nipple broke off rather than detach from the grease gun.


For an amateur like me this make packing bearings a snap. Thank you eTrailer.


Works as advertised - - wish I'd ordered one years ago.

Larry H.


This been great! I repacked my travel trailer bearings, and since it worked so sell, I repacked two boat trailers worth of bearings. I just put the packer in a zip lock bag in an empty coffee can - - no wasted grease and ready for the next time I need it.


Product arrived very quickly, in perfect condition, was fairly priced.
I'm very satisfied with etrailer.


Items were top quality and arrived as promised. Customer service was great in helping identify what was required. I recommend your company to all my friends and i have been doing business with you fir years and have always had great service.


This product works, but the edges are VERY sharp. I sliced my fingers pretty deep when I grabbed it. Another couple cents worth of manufacturing could’ve fixed these dangerously sharp edges.

  • Recommendation for Packing Bearing With Grease Prior to Using Grease Gun on an EZ-Lube Axle
    I highly recommend packing the bearings with grease prior to installing them on your new axle and then continue to fill up the remaining space with the EZ-Lube feature. You want to do this because it's important to make sure they are all lubed up before taking off. The EZ-Lube feature is typically to help maintain the amount of grease within the axle between trips. If you pre pack the bearings you can be worry-free that your new bearing won't be damaged that first trip. If you would...

  • Can Air Powered Grease Gun Be Used to Grease Hub on EZ Lube Spindle
    As long as you don't over fill the hubs with grease you can use an air-powered grease gun. If you put too much grease in a hub you'll blow out the seal on the back side of the hubs so you have be careful not to do that. You should slowly pump grease into the spindle. As you are pumping the grease into the spindle, occasionally rotate the hub. This will prevent the grease from building up in one spot. Continue to pump grease until you begin to see the outer bearing move or you see grease...

  • Should Bearings Be Replaced When a New Axle Is Installed
    If your bearings are in good shape no, you don't need to replace your bearings with your new axle. A good rule of thumb is to replace your bearings every 12,000 miles or every 12 months, whichever comes first. Since you don't use the trailer that often you should be fine, but considering the age I'd probably just replace them.

  • Should New Trailer Hub Be Hard to Turn by Hand
    Trailer grease can be pretty thick and might make the hub slightly heavier feeling when turning by hand, but if your hub is difficult to turn by hand you most likely have the spindle nut tightened down too far. When our installers replace a trailer hub, there isn't a set torque spec used when tightening the spindle nut. The hub is placed on the spindle, making sure the inner and outer bearings are correctly seated. The spindle nut is then run down until you start feeling resistance. At...

  • Correct Trailer Tire psi and General Maintenance
    You should always tow a trailer with the tires inflated to their maximum psi when the tires are cold. Use the max psi listed on the side of the tire. It may seem high from what you're used to because we're used to passenger vehice tires which aren't the same. Trailer tires are designed to handle the heavy verticle load from a trailer and are constructed to handle this load at their listed psi. Inflating them to a different psi can jeopardize the integrity of the tire and even decrease...

  • Troubleshooting Stiff New Hubs on Trailer
    It is not unusual for the hubs to be a little stiff at first. You will also want to make sure the wheels and bearings are well greased. I have included a link to a video that shows how to pack bearings with grease by hand. We also have a tool that can be used, # L70025, that you can use with a grease gun, # L30100, to limit the mess. I have also linked a grease compatibility chart for future reference.

  • Grease Recommendation and Schedule for Dexter EZ Lube Spindles
    Standard tapered trailer wheel bearings are recommended to be re-packed with fresh bearing grease about every year or every 12,000 miles under normal use. In certain conditions this interval could be shorter, such as if you routinely tow the trailer under conditions of extreme heat or near its maximum load capacity. This and other recommended trailer maintenance procedures are outlined in the linked article, which may interest you. The best grease around for trailer hubs is the "Red" grease...

  • Where to Apply Grease When Replacing Trailer Bearings
    After packing the bearings, making sure that every space of the bearing has been filled with grease, you should also apply a thin layer of grease to the trailer spindle. As long as the bearings are properly packed, this is all you need to do. Using a Bearing Packer like the LubriMatic # L70025 will make this process easier. For grease I recommend the LubriMatic Wheel Bearing Grease # L11465. I have also attached an article on replacing trailer bearings that you might find helpful.

  • When Should Trailer Wheel Bearings be Replaced
    We recommended to repack the wheel bearings on your trailer every 12 months or 12,000 miles. There is not a specific guideline as far as actually replacing the bearings. When repacking them with grease, you will also just want to check for any damage or wear and replace anything if needed. As long as everything looks fine, there is no need to replace the bearings based on time alone. If you will be packing the bearings by hand, I recommend using a grease like the Prime Guard Wheel Bearing...

  • Outer Boat Trailer Bearings Wear Out After Long Trip
    It sounds like wheels of the trailer are angled in at the bottom/out at the top or vice versa. This would cause excessive wear on the bearings. There are a few things that can cause this. First, if the tires angle out at the bottom then that could mean that the trailer is overloaded. But based on the weights you have provided the load on the trailer is 2,000 pounds. But if it ever was overloaded that could be what has happened. It could also happen if the axle was physically flipped over;...

  • Do Hubs Need to Be Removed to Re-Pack Bearings on EZ-Lube Axle
    With an EZ-Lube axle you do not have to take off the hubs to re-pack the bearings. You can use grease like # L11390 along with a grease gun # L30200 to add new grease and push the old grease out. However, it is best to pull the hubs and manually inspect your bearings at least once a year to make sure they are in good shape. When you pull them for inspection you will want to re-pack them by hand or use a bearing packer # L70025 prior to installing them again.

  • Do Trailer Bearings Need to be Cleaned When Re-packing
    I would remove the hubs and clean the bearings and the inside of the hubs. Just adding grease will allow any impurities that have entered the hub to remain in there with your bearings. Water, sand, salt and other road grime inevitably work their way into the bearings and will eventually cause damage if the bearings are not cleaned. You also get the added benefit of being able to inspect the bearings, races, hubs and brakes for wear or damage. Knowing that your trailer is in good shape...

  • Tips for Repacking Bearing on Older Tow Dolly
    I have linked a video to the right that shows how to pack trailer bearings. Be sure to remove all of the old grease prior to reinstalling the bearings. There are also products you can use so as to avoid packing the bearings by hand such as the bearing packer # L70025. Then you could use a grease gun such as # L30416 and grease # L11390.

  • How Long Should it Take to Replace Electric Brakes and Bearings on a 6K Dexter Axle
    On a single axle with all of the parts and tools ready it would take someone with experience maybe about an hour to complete the installation. Out in the driveway where you can take your time maybe about 2 hours. That is provided you do not have to fight with any of the components like a rusted bolt or something like that. The brakes will just bolt on so they are easy to mount. The wiring part will take about the same amount of time. Make sure your ground wire is attached to a clean bare...

  • Bearing Buddies for a Bearing with 1.625 Inner Diameter on a Motorcycle Trailer
    Bearing measurements have to be as precise as possible so if you are not using dial or digital calipers you will want to get some. But that is only if you cannot read the bearing number on the outer bearing. It should be stamped into the metal of the bearing. The diameter of the Bearing Buddies is its outer diameter where it fits into the end of the hub. It is actually slightly larger than the opening because you need a very tight fit. If your outer bearing number is # LM-11949 then you...

  • Possible Damaged Axle From Wheel Bearing Failure
    It sounds to me that you might have a damaged axle or it is out of alignment for bearings to become damaged that quickly. Unless water had gotten through the grease seal and filled the hub as this would explain why you found the rust. I would first pull the hub assemblies off and begin checking the axle spindles for damage. You can read through our article on Replacing the Bearing, Races and Seals on a Trailer Hub(linked below). This explains to you what you want to inspect on the parts....

  • Needing a Grease Seal That Fits an Spindle That Has # L44643 Bearing
    If your inside bearing on your spindle is # L44643, then you will need the Double Lip Grease Seal # 34823. This seal has an I.D. of 1-1/4 inches and an O.D. of almost 2 inches. I recommend using wheel bearing grease, # L11465, and bearing packer, # L70025, when repacking your wheel bearings.

  • Recommendation For Greasing Boat Trailer Bearings - Regular or Marine Grease
    Your statement (I have heard others say that you should never mix marine grease with general purpose grease, but mixing different brands of marine grease wont hurt.) sums up the way I have used grease all of my life. Being raised around all kinds of things that need grease, tractors, trailers, boat trailers, combines, planters, and a number of other miscellaneous pieces of equipment we used grease, a lot of it, because if the item had grease it lasted longer and we were not constantly working...

  • Recommended Grease for Repacking Bearings on CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly # CE13100
    I spoke with my contact at CE Smith regarding the Trailer Hub Assembly # CE13100 that you reference. She stated that they use an NLGI # 2 red grease like the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390. This will be compatible with the grease currently in the hub, but I do still recommend removing as much grease from the hubs as you can when repacking, as it's possible that the old grease may be contaminated from moisture. I have attached a great article on repacking trailer bearings...

  • Is a 16 Oz. Can of Grease Enough to Repack Four Wheels on a Car Trailer
    When repacking your bearings it takes very little grease, so a 14 oz. cartridge or 16 oz. can will be more than enough for your four wheels. If you aren't sure which grease to buy, I recommend the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390. This is heavy-duty, premium grease for the toughest lubricating jobs on the biggest, heaviest equipment. It performs better under higher pressures and temperatures than standard multi-purpose grease, and it resists water better. If you don't...

  • Best Grease For a Utility Trailer With 12" Diameter Wheels
    I feel the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390 is the best to use on most trailer applications. It is designed to work well in both hot and cold climates while also being highly water insoluble so you will not have to worry about it washing away if driving in the rain. The Grease Gun # L30416 along with a Bearing Packer # L70025 is the best way to ensure the bearings are getting filled with grease.

  • Tips on How to Pack Trailer Bearings with Grease
    I will be happy to help. First, there are some bearings that are sealed and do not need to be lubricated. They are called cartridge bearings and are very different than other bearings. It doesn't sound like that is what you have though. I have linked a video to the right that shows how to pack trailer bearings. Be sure to remove all of the old grease prior to reinstalling the bearings. There are also products you can use so as to avoid packing the bearings by hand such as the bearing...
