The high-quality seal in this unique kit is made of neoprene, a flexible, synthetic rubber that remains stable even at high temperatures.

By using this grease seal set along with your Bearing Buddy bearing protector, you can be sure that the seal and ring always have adequate grease for fluid operation.

Bearing Buddy Spindle Seal Set

Note: If your axle spindles already have permanent, stainless steel surface rings, you do not need this spindle seal system.

Works well. You must bottom out the seal in the hub not just flush with the top for the seal to seat correctly on the spindle surface. 875876

Bearing buddy spindle sleeve savers were easy to install and should work great. I should have purchased the seal removal tool to get the old seal out, but even without, I was able to replace the inner seals in less than an hour. We'll see how long they last. Extremely satisfied with etrailer customer service. One part was missing from the package and they sent me a replacement quickly. 798981

My galvanized boat trailer was made 34 years ago. Thru the years my stockpile of hub grease seals had become exhausted. I contacted the original manufacture's parts department, who were very helpful, but couldn't come up with my seal. They didn't recognize their old kit number from 34 years ago. I tied local stores for seals in my area to no avail. I then went online and found etrailer.com. They had the Buddy Bearing Seal Set #BB60002 which was exactly what I needed and like what I bought from the original manufacture 34 years ago. I will be going to etrailer.com for all my trailer needs. 548290

I looked locally for the bearing and seal sleeve I needed but nobody carried it. I called Etrailer and got Ian on the line. With only dimensions from the bearing and the seal from online research Ian was able to match up the parts I needed. Fast, intelligent and helpful service. I will go directly to etrailer next time and save me all the phone calls and running around. 544100

This Bearing Buddy seal kit is a great concept on paper. This kit may work well on highway only applications. I used this kit on a boat trailer application and it was a disaster. The first problem encountered is this kit eliminates the best feature of a E-Z Lube 3500# trailer axle. That feature is the ability to pump grease into the hub without any disassembly. The second shortcoming of this design is the entire inner seal assembly is centered and retained by a tiny single O-ring. The trailer this kit was installed on has disc brakes. After one road trip the O-rings shrunk /cracked causing the inner seal race to loose contact with the axle. This caused the grease to leak out all over the rotors and calipers. That is not worst part. It was later determined that the seal kit did not even last long enough on the first trip to function as described. Upon teardown of all four hubs it was clear the hubs flooded with water at the first launching of the boat. Between the mess made on the trailer brake hardware and the water soaked hubs I can not recommend this seal kit for boat trailer applications. 450726

  • How to Find the Correct Grease Seal for Trailer Hub Assembly
    Unless you can get the bearing numbers and seal information from the manufacturer, there isn't a way to really find that information without removing the hubs. You don't have to dismantle them if you want to measure the spindle in a couple locations with a digital caliper like # PTW80157. I've attached a video of how to do this. Sometimes there isn't too much wear on the seal and you may be able to read the number on the metal rim. If not, then measuring the spindle and getting...

  • Using Bearing Buddy # BB60002 Grease Seal Kit on Spindle With Damaged Grease Seal Journal Surface
    If the seal journal surface on your spindle is damaged to the point where the grease seal compatible with your hub won't contain the grease in the hub, the only acceptable way to proceed is to replace the spindle or the axle. Because welding replacement spindles into place is a delicate operation requiring lots of skill to get correct, in many cases its simpler to replace the axle. We have a limited selection of trailer axles available, in order to determine if anything we have on hand...

  • Need To Replace Old Grease Seal # 171255
    You will want to match up the old seal with the number stamped on the seal. Each seal number is an indication of a different size seal. The correct # 171255 seal that you will need is Grease Seal - Double Lip, part # 58846. This seal includes the spring that you referred to.

    We carry the a grease seal that matches what you have. For that you would want the # BB60002. For the bearings we have the part # 29749 and the race part # 29710. For the other bearing we do not have an exact number match, but based on the race # L44610 that you have the bearing you need is either the # L44643 or # L44649. If the inner diameter of the bearing you have is 1.00 inches measured with a digital or dial caliper you would need part # L44643, if instead it is 1.06 you...

  • Bearing Buddy Spindle Seal Kit For Hub Using L68149 Inner Bearing
    The Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Kit you referenced, part # BB60002 would be the appropriate replacement seal for your hub. It is compatible with your L68149 inner bearing and is the proper replacement for your existing 10-19 seal. The two most common causes of seal failure are 1) Using a single lip seal instead of a double lip and 2) Overfilling the hub (or a combination of the two.) A double-lip seal incorporates a spring into the seal, providing a tighter seal around the spindle. To...

  • What is Purpose of O-Ring that Comes with Spindle Grease Seal Set BB60002
    If you check out the diagram I attached you'll see how the O-ring of the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal set part # BB60002 installs. It's location is designed to compress between the seal ring and grease seal to help prevent the seal from leaking or failing. With Bearing Buddies people tend to put too much grease in the hubs with them so this acts as a way to help brace the seal and prevent failure.

  • Can Double-Lip Grease Seals Be Substituted for Standard Seals
    You can replace a standard grease seal with one of the Bearing Buddy seals like # BB60002, even if you do not care to use the Bearing Buddy protectors, so long as the seal inner and outer diameters match the dimensions required by your spindle and hub bore. These seals are the double-lip type that can withstand the higher grease pressure inside the hub bore when a Bearing Buddy grease cap is installed but they will provide durable service even if this is not the case. They will also...

  • Where Does O-Ring Install When Using Bearing Buddy Grease Seal BB60002
    If you use the O-ring of the Bearing Buddy grease seal kit you'll want to use the attached diagram to assemble everything. This came straight from Bearing Buddy so hopefully it clears up any confusion. Not every application uses these but if you are using a Bearing Buddy they are recommended since they end up with more pressure in the hub than applications without. Seals do tend to have issues randomly and sometimes its hard to have an exact reason. If you are using a Bearing Buddy typically...

  • How do Bearings and Hub Seals Install on a Boat Trailer Hub
    The inner bearing will not ride on the rubber o-ring. The bearing will ride on the spindle and the seal goes just to the outside of it and keeps the grease from leaking out of the hub. To see how it all goes together check out the video I attached.

The inner diameter of the steel ring for this set measures 1.377 inches. Your spindle will have to fall within this measurement for this seal kit to fit. I have attached a diagram of where you will need to measure on your spindle to find the correct measurement.

  • Cant Install Rotor All the Way on Trailer Spindle Using Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set
    It will be a very tight fit, especially if you have previously wiped all the grease from the spindles prior to installing the rotors. What I believe is happening is the tight fit is preventing you from easily pushing the rotor all the way onto the spindle. If you still have a free seal assembly not installed in a rotor yet you can do a dry test fit on a spindle to see if it seats in the proper position at all. If it doesn't then it is possible that for some reason the Bearing Buddy...

    Try measuring your old grease seal again as most likely the part # 10-9 would be the correct seal you would need. This seal has an inner diameter of 1.50 inches and an outer diameter of 1.987 which is pretty close to what you have but not quite the same. This would be the best option we could provide. The closest grease seal to match the second set of dimensions is the part # BB60002 that has inner diameter of 1.875 and outer diameter 2.560.

You should not add additional grease once the Bearing Buddy is full to prevent the seal from blowing out. I would also recommend using the Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set, # BB60002. These seals...
