Made packing my new bearings SuPeR easy! I’ve always just hand packed bearings and it totally works, but this thing is so much faster and less messy. However, don’t for a second think that it’s going to be a clean job, even with this tool. It just makes it a little less messy and a lot faster. Great tool! 570021

**UPDATE WEBSKU** One of the two was off the bead when I received it. Nothing a ratchet strap and air compressor couldn’t remedy. Needed new rubber for my boat trailer. These look like they’ll do the trick. 575763

This is a handy tool! It works well. The only complaint is after using it on the first bearing we found a large metal burr in the bore of the threaded rod (obviously left over from the machining process)(see image below). This made us wonder if we had pressed any metal pieces into the bearing - I guess only time will tell if we did... 661699



- PTW1218
by:

Definitely not a production tool, but it works great for the yearly bearing repack on the trailer. The threaded shaft tends to unscrew out of the bottom piece when unscrewing the top piece to remove the bearing. Next year I might try to use wrenches to tighten these two pieces together before placing the bearing and top portion on. This year I only hand tightened it. Still works fine and I would buy it again as the price is so low. 418966

Don't waste your money. Very poor quality. The threads were so poorly produced the pieces would not screw together. Never able to use it. Threw it in the trash where it belonged and purchased one locally. 571332

  • How to Install Races in a Hub Assembly
    We do not carry a tool that will help install your races, though I can pass on some information for you that might be helpful. To install your races, this is what you'll want to do, according to our help article on replacing bearings, races and seals on a trailer hub (which I'll link for you). First, place the race in the hub, thin edge towards the outside. Carefully tap in the race until it is level with the hub. After the race is level, the old race can be used to push the new race...

  • Is There a Risk of Adding Too Much Grease to an EZ-Lube Spindle
    When you are replacing bearings you do want to pack them prior to installing the new ones into your hub. This ensures that the grease actually gets pushed completely into the bearings so that they work properly and don't overheat. You can use a bearing packer like part # PTW1218 or # ALL647646 to accomplish this. The grease zerk fittings on your EZ-Lube spindles you are talking about are more for adding grease between changing out bearings/seals/hubs. I believe the section of our linked...

  • Trailer Bearing Kit for Lippert 4,400 lb Axles
    We have exactly what you need for the bearings and seals for a Lippert 4,400 lb axle, which is Bearing Kit # BK2-100. This kit includes inner bearing # L68149, inner race # L68111, outer bearing # L44649, outer race # L44610, grease seal # 58846, a cotter pin and a tang washer. You will need two kits for both wheels on your axle. For grease I also recommend the LubriMatic Disc/Drum Brake and Wheel Bearing Grease # L11382; then for a bearing packer I recommend the Bearing Packer #...

  • Resistance When Pulling Trailer After New Hub Installation
    If you just have idler hubs and not braking assembles on your trailer then I don't think the wrong size bearings are the problem. If you did install the wrong size bearings then they would have had to of been larger and in that case you would have a lot of play on the idler hubs, not resistance. I believe the problem you are experiencing has to do with the amount of torque that was applied to the castle nut that attaches the ider hub to the spindle. If you take a look at the 6:00 minute...

  • Replacement Bearing Kit for 7,000 lb Dexter Axles
    For your Dexter 7K axles, you will want the Bearing Kit, 14125A/ 25580 Bearings, 10-36 Seal # BK3-200 for each hub if you have the standard spindle. If you have the EZ Lube spindle with the grease zerk then you will want # BK3-210 to include the EZ Lube washer. For the grease, I recommend the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease - 14 oz. Cartridge # L11390. If you want to pack them easily, I recommend using the Bearing Packer - Plastic # PTW1218. I've also attached an article...

  • Recommended Grease Conversion for Dexter 12k Oil Bath Axles
    The Dexter 12K oil bath axles can be changed over to grease without any issues. The oil does keep the bearings lubricated well, but there is a much higher risk of leaking which leads to a much higher risk of failure. I'd personally move to grease # L11390 and make sure it is packed well into the bearings using # PTW1218. This will allow you to use your same bearings and oil cap, but you will need to replace the seal once removed to pack the inner bearing. For that you can use # 10-56.

  • Replacement Bearing Kit for a 2018 Grand Design Imagine 2800BH
    The correct replacement wheel bearing kit or your 2018 Grand Design Imagine 2800BH should be the Bearing Kit for #84 Spindles part # BK2-100. This bearing kit comes with one L68149 inner bearing, one L44649 outer bearing, the corresponding races, a 10-19 grease seal, a tang washer, and a cotter pin. This will be everything that you need to rebuild the hubs on your Dexter 3,500 lb axle. You will need one kit per hub. Please note that in order to ensure you have the bearings properly...

  • Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000 lb Axle With 13 Inch Wheels
    We do have a solution for you, although the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles # 34822545BX does require wheels be only 8" to 12". The reason for that is there is this hub does not have a large enough flange diameter in order to to provide the necessary side-to-side support for a larger 13" wheel, so it can become loose on the hub. Instead, the hub you need for your 13" wheel is the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles # 8-258BTUC1. This uses the...

  • Recommended Hub Assembly for 1 Inch Axle Spindle
    We have the complete assemblies available with the races installed, but you still will need to install the bearings and seal to attach to your spindle. I recommend the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 4 on 4 # AKIHUB-440-2-2K or the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern # AKIHUB-545-2-2K. These will both fit 1 inch spindles and have all the needed parts, so you just pack the bearings and install on your spindle. For grease use # L11465 for grease packer use # PTW1218.

  • Why Are New Hydraulic Brakes Getting Hot and Smoking
    It sounds like you installed the Demco Hydraulic Brake Kit # 23511-10 correctly but it is possible you may have adjusted them a bit too aggressively, as "slight drag" is subjective, of course. Otherwise there could be an issue with your drum assembly if it is on the older side. If the assembly is at all warped or slightly corroded that can be an issue. Another problem may be that the hub needs to be properly greased and the bearings packed with Bearing Grease # L11402 and a bearing packer...

  • Electric Hub and Drum/Self-Adjusting Brakes Assemblies Needed for Lippert 3,500 lb Axles
    I do have a hub and drum/electric drum brake combination for you, but unfortunately the only pre-greased hubs that we have are idler hubs. I was able to verify with Lippert that the axle with the part V000378958 is a 3,500 lb axle. They were not able to verify the bearings and grease seal but typically a 3,500 lb axle will use an Innder Bearing # L68149, and Outer Bearing # L44649, andthe Grease Seal # 58846 that has a 1.719" ID and a 2.565" OD. If you can verify that this is the...

  • How to Grease the Bearings on My Trailer
    Greasing the bearings is actually a fairly easy process. It does take a little bit of time to complete, but after you are done you won't have to worry about greasing the bearings again for a few years. I do have some recommendations to help make this process a bit easier for you. When it comes to packing the bearings with grease you do have a few different options. You can either do it by hand or you can use a grease packer. Although doing it by hand is definitely the most cost efficient...

  • Replacement Bearing Kit and Brakes for a 2013 Rockwood Premier Series M-2514G
    Since you don't know the exact parts currently on the trailer we're basically guessing. So I've linked our return policy for you in case you need it. From my research the Rockwood likely has a 3,500 pound axle and therefore uses 10 inch brakes. The 10 inch brake assemblies I recommend for you (And almost always recommend) are # AKEBRK-35-SA. These are self-adjusting so after the original set up they won't need to be adjusted again. Both the left and right hand side are included,...

  • Recommended Replacement Hub for Dexter 8-91A
    I reached out to my contact at Dexter regarding the numbers you gave. They couldn't match anything and suggested that you most likely have a 8-91A, which is a 4 on 4 bolt pattern. That is a very basic trailer hub assembly and the replacement part is # 8-91-05UC1. This assembly comes with the L44643 bearings, the grease seal, the lugs and the grease cap. I'd suggest a bearing packer like # PTW1218 and the Industrial Strength Grease # L11390.

  • Replacement Bearing Kit For 1998 Coleman Cheyenne Pop Up Camper
    For your 1998 Coleman Cheyenne pop up camper, the Bearing Kit, L44649 Inner/Outer Bearings, 10-60 Seal # BK1-150 is the correct fit based on the info you gave me. If your spindles didn't have a washer, you can add it or not. Some axles don't use washers and this kit comes with the d-shaped washer with the holder for the cotter pin for the castle nut. That washer goes between the outer bearing and the nut as you mentioned. When you install these, you will want to use a bearing packer...

You will definitely want to replace both hubs. Things you need to match up are the hub bolt pattern, the axle weight rating and the bearing numbers.

I recommend getting the complete kit which is Bearing Kit for #84 Spindle, L44649/L68149 Bearings, 10-19 Double Lip Seal # BK2-100. This kit will include the inner bearing and race, the outer bearing and race, the grease seal, the cotter pin, and tang washer for EZ-Lube applications. I've attached...

  • Is there a Torque Spec for Installation of Castle Nut on 2,000 lb Axle?
    The castle nuts do not have a torque spec. Bearings and races are fit to the spindle precisely and will have minimal movement to the washer and castle nut which will simply be tightened and held in place with the cotter pin # 165649. We recommend tightening until the nut stops without added force and then backing it off one notch to fit the castle nut. The Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 4 on 4 - L44649 Bearings # 8-91-05UC1 is a fit for 1.063 inch spindles and...

  • Installing Disc Brake Rotors with E-Coat Finish
    No, the E-Coat is not to be removed from the rotors. The E-coat is a protective coat that will prevent corrosion but it will not cause issues with coating your brake pads or have any negative impact. The Dexter Disc Brake Kit - 10" Hub/Rotor - 5 on 4-1/2 - E-Coat - 3,500 lbs # K71-633-2 comes ready to install. I recommend packing the bearings of the hubs as usual using a grease packer like # PTW1218 and once that installation is done, then you can simply wipe down the other parts...

If you don't already have a bearing packer and grease you can use both part # PTW1218 and part # L11404.

    Since you have the spindles with the zerk on the end, I recommend the EZ lube that you mentioned because it is designed to give you easy access to that zerk by removing the plug and not the entire cap. For this assembly, you will want the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 4 on 4 - Galvanized # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-2K. If you really don't want the EZ lube access, you can use the AKIHUB-440-2-G-2K with the solid caps. We don't have any assemblies already grease packed...
