etrailer was informative and knowledgeable on product. Pricing was very good. My old jet ski trailer was getting impossible to keep grease in wheel bearings. The Bearing Buddy spindle seal system was easy to install and looks like it should work perfectly. As you can see in pictures the spindles have significant wear and the kit fit perfectly. I expect to not be throwing grease everywhere.


Comments
Excellent. Trailer has been over many miles and very many launches. No leaks and not throwing grease anywhere

I have installed bearings from eTrailer on three different trailers, and they have all been high quality.


Comments
I still have two of the trailers the bearings, seals, and Bearing Buddies are still working great with no leaks or any problems.

These grease seals are a great compliment to the Bearing Buddy lubricators. The spindle seals I had were shot and the grease pressure had pushed one of the seals completely out of the hub! The sleeve that came with the kit covered up a worn seal surface on the axle. This product saved me from having to replace the axle! I did have have to cut deeper grooves in the spindle nut to accomodate the cotter pin. I needed to remove about 2 MM and I was able to accomplish this with a Dremel tool and cut-off wheel.


Comments
The Bearing Buddy grease seals are still working great after a year in service. I have to pull my trailer in snow and slush conditions, as well as off-road. In addition, it has to be stored outside when not in use. The grease stays in the hub, where it belongs. I would not install Bearing Buddy lubricators without these seals.

Fit my 1 inch axle perfectly. Perfect repair for a worn seal surface. Seals fit my hubs as well. Allows the bearing buddies to work correctly and not cause over filling of hubs with grease.

I had ordered the Bearing Buddy seals before so this time I went to etrailer.com and had the specific ones I needed for my trailer in Just minutes. I highly recommend the Bearilng Buddy Seals if you have a trailer with graseable hubs. I could not find the seals in stock locally.

I HAVE BEEN USING THIS SEAL FOR A YEAR AND IT HAS WORKED PERFECTLY NO GREASE LEAKS. I HAVE 2 OTHER BOAT TRAILERS WITH LUB HUBS AND THE NEXT TIME I HAVE THE HUBS OFF THEY WILL GET THIS SEAL

The old set of seals were oozing a little so I installed a set of new bearings and stock seals purchased from my local trailer supply store. I took it for a test ride, huge hunks of grease all over the inside of my rims, a real disappointment. Got on the web with etrailer.com, they got the 1.980 Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set - BB60001 and the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 1980A in a few days. It took 45 minutes to read the instructions, install the grease seals and protectors and clean-up. What a great fix! I had to make a 200 mile run that day to pick-up a classic canoe for a customer, not a speck of grease anywhere, clean, clean, clean!!! Great product, great fix, great price and service from etraler.com. Thanks

The stainless axle seals and bearing seals were a breeze to install. I also as you know installed new bearings and races that I purchased from you. The entire process went very well with no problems whatsoever. I'm 75 years old and am experienced in working with cars so it may prove a little more difficult with someone that is a novice. I will, without a doubt use your services again should I need them. Great products!!!

When deciding to replace the bearings in my boat trailer, I was unaware that a better seal was provided when using my existing Bearing Buddies which tends to force some grease out the back side of the seal. They were very easy to install and use and so far see no signs of grease are coming out the seal after several trips to the bay.



- BB60001
by:

I have a Trailrite trailer for my boat. I used the new seals after removing the old ones to repack the inner bearings. The spindle already had the shinny insert, but the new ones wouldn't fit over the existing spindle and the existing ones looked good. I used the brass portion with rubber seal and the spring.

As others have said, I'm sure satisfied with the way the seals can save an axle that has damage to the seal surface. Now I will always have a fresh surface each time I change them. The purpose of finding this seal was solely for saving an axle that was old and a very odd, and expensive, size. So, for me, this was a very easy choice. Still in great service and pulled 2400 miles to northwest Ontario and doing great. My sincere thanks to the staff for telling me about this type of seal. Saved me hundreds.

Have put another 2,000 miles on still going great. Glad I found them glad theyre good. Would recommend at still after a Years use.

An easy to install product that keeps grease where it should be -- in the hub and not all over the inside of your trailer wheels. It allows proper use of Bearing Buddies, and includes an inner stainless seal that repairs a damaged spindle. Excellent!

Ask the Experts about this Bearing Buddy Trailer Bearings Races Seals Caps

  • Grease Seal Recommendation for a Spindle with Inner Bearing # L44643
    It sounds like you are looking for the correct grease seal for your spindle. If your inner bearing is part # L44643 and the grease seal journal, or mounting location, on the spindle is 1.25 inches, then you have two grease seal options. For a standard double lip grease seal, you can use part # 34823. This seal will sit on the grease seal journal of the spindle. Your second option is the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set, # BB60001. These seals mount on a stainless steel seal ring and sit...

  • Can Older Race in Trailer Hub Be Reused and Will Grease Seal Installed Past Flush be Okay
    Reusing your old race is totally fine and going just a little bit past flush with the grease seal is totally fine as well. Normally we recommend flush but if you are just a bit past that there won't be any problems.

  • Compatibility of the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set on Boat Trailer Axle
    The Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Kit, # BB60001, is compatible on spindles that use the L44646 inner wheel bearing. The seals ID is 1.375 inches, but the stainless steel rings that slide over the spindle fit the 1.275 inch seal surface on the spindle. When installed on the axle, the grease seal will seat to the steel ring and complete the seal between the hub and the axle. The linked video will show how the seal, steel ring, and O-ring will install on an axle.

  • Availability of a Replacement Grease Seal with 1.5 Inch Inner Diameter and 1.980 Outer Diameter
    The closest grease seals that we carry to the dimensions you have specified are Grease Seals, # RG06-020, for a double lip seal pair, or # 10-9 for 1 seal. These have an inner diameter of 1.5 inches and an outer diameter of 1.987 inches. That is only .007 inches larger than the 1.980 you have indicated. To find the exact replacement, I would need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings. I have included a video below showing how to remove, inspect,...

  • How To Determine Which Bearing Kit Will Work For Trailer
    Many times when adding grease with the Bearing Buddy, a customer will add too much grease and blow out the rear grease seal which causes just what you say is happening to your wheel. I am sorry but to really be able to tell you what bearing kit you need for your Escort trailer is to disassemble a hub on one side of the trailer and get the bearing part numbers that are stamped on the bearings.There is an inner and outer bearing. With these part numbers I will be able to determine the bearings,...

  • Recommended Seal for a 1 1/16th Inch Straight Spindle
    With the spindle having a diameter of 1 1/16, you would want the bearing kit # BK1-150. This does include the larger 1.5 inch diameter seal # 10-9. The 1.25 inch diameter seal would be for a 1 inch diameter straight spindle. The seal should have a fairly snug fit, but not excessively. It should also not be loose. This would cause it to leak and let water in, which would be bad. I have included an install video the shows how to replace bearings, seals, and caps on hubs that should...

  • What Order do the Parts Get Installed for Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60001 for Bearing Buddies
    The video is correct. The diagram is more for identifying the parts and their basic placement. The o-ring actually is supposed to ride on the spindle but can actually fit through that stainless steel ring when not on the spindle. So basically, you will slide on the stainless steel ring first then slip the o-ring on. The grease seal will install in the back of the hub just like you would normally do with a seal. You would then install the hub. So the diagram is basically an exploded...

  • Recommendation For Correct Grease Seal When Using Bearing Buddy Protectors on Motorcycle Trailer
    The Bearing Buddy Seals, part # BB60001, will not fit your application. I would recommend to use the TruRyde Double Lip Grease Seals, part # RG06-010. These are the correct size and are a double lip grease seal. These seals will work better than the normal single lip seal, when using the Bearing Buddy protectors on your trailer. The double lip seal will help maintain the slight pressure that is in the hub when using the Bearing Buddy protectors.

  • Replacement Trailer Hub Grease Seal with Outer Diameter 2 inch and Inner Diameter 1-3/8 inch
    Based on the dimensions listed we have the bearing kit part # BB60001 which has an outer diameter of 1.980 inches and an internal diameter of 1.375 inch. You'd want to use a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to verify that your dimensions are the same since the dimensions have to be exact.

  • Determining Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set
    Based on your spindle measurement where the bearings ride it sounds like you have # L44649 for the bearings which means the correct Bearing Buddy seal set is part # BB60005. Although, with those bearings you should have a BTR spindle and the location where the seal rides should be 1.50 inches not 1.25 inches. If the seal location is 1.25 inches then it sounds like you have a BT8 spindle in which case you have # L44643 for the bearings which measure 0.99 inches and you need part # BB60001...

  • New Grease Seal Leaked After Installation of Bearing Buddies with Hub Kit # 8-248-50UC1
    Thank you for your recent purchase from etrailer. The grease seal included with this hub kit has an inner diameter of 1.500-inches and an outer diameter of 1.987-inches. This seal should be fully seated into the rear bore of the hub so that it is flush with the back hub surface. The grease seal leak you experienced could come from the seal not being fully seated into the hub, or it could, as you noted, be a result of the over-filling of your Bearing Buddies. If this hub does not have...

  • Which Bearing Buddies Fit Trailer Hub # 34822545BX
    You will need Bearing Buddies that fit a 1.98 diameter hub bore. We have several models. For stainless steel use # BB1980A-SS. For chrome plated use # BB1980A. And, if the hub is threaded, use # BB1980T-SS. I also recommend special seals for use with Bearing Buddies, # BB60001, to prevent having a blow out with a regular seal.

  • Grease Seal Installation When Using Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors
    When installing the double-lip grease seals like # BB60001 that are needed when using Bearing Buddy bearing protectors like # BB1980A-SS you want to install the rear grease seals as gently as you can, to avoid any deformation of their shape, and only until they are flush with the rear hub bore.

  • Are Other Parts Needed to Install Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A-SS
    The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors you referenced, part # BB1980A-SS, do not require other parts for installation on your trailer hubs. What is important is that your current trailer hubs have the correct bore for these parts, 1.980-inches as measured with a digital caliper, and that your outer bearing number matches one of the three that are compatible with this Bearing Buddy kit: L-44643, L-44649 or L-44640. Also please note that Bearing Buddies cannot be used on EZ-Lube spindles...

  • Recommended Bearing Buddy Grease Cap & Seal for Boat Trailer Using Dexter Hub 34822BX
    For a hub like the Dexter # 34822BX that has a hub bore diameter of 1.98-inches, you'll want to use stainless steel Bearing Buddy # BB1980A-SS. These will provide the best resistance to corrosion and will allow the boat trailer's wheels to be completely submerged. The blue indicator makes it easy to see when you need to add grease. If this will be your first time using Bearing Buddies use caution when filling them initially. There can be a tendency to over-fill which can cause your inner...
