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.

My axle spindes already have permanent stainless steel surface rings/ seal lips which are 1 3/8 or 1.375". This was the only way I could get a grease seal with an ID 1.375 and OD 1.980. Checked a 100 different places. Didn't need the other parts. Why doesn't any one carry that size seal???? ( ID 1.373 OD 1.980) Was Glad You had it . Thank you--OKB 96422

Ordering was easy, parts were shipped crazy fast now just need to reinstall bearings and seals in trailer axels thanks again 575599

by:

i ordered this part thinking all my troubles with grease leakage at inner seal would be cured. but when i received parts , there was a note on package that i may have to alter my retaining nut by shaving off the backside to make it thinner or by cutting the grooves where the cotter pin slips through a little deeper in order to get the hub on and secured. the stainless steel ring will not let my hub slide on deep enough to use original nut and pin. i wish this "NOTE" was listed on here and explained before i purchased....wasted money here! and still need a rear seal. 49220

by:

These things work great for rehabbing worn grease seal surfaces on older axles. I use them whenever I can, especially when worn, pitted, or damaged grease seal surfaces would otherwise prevent reusing an axle that is fine in every other way. It really helps to clean up where the new grease seal o-ring will seat on the spindle with emory cloth before installing. I've used them on some pretty rough axles and never had a leak since. 352937



- BB60005
by:

With these seals they have a bearing race which extends the bearings further to the outside. So you need to replace the nut with a thinner one so you can get the cotter pin inserted. 527618



- BB60005
by:

this did fix my spindle/leaking grease seal issue, however I had to modify the spindle a little to make it work. The directions tell you #1 and #5 model seal kits sometimes don't fit some axles as intended based on axle/spindle design. I have an old 87' axle and this was the only product I could find that would work. Took a test drive and so far no more leaking grease seal. This worked when a regular grease seal would not have worked for me as my seal surface was old and damaged and worn. 555470



- BB60005
by:

Bought this set for my boat trailer to use in conjunction with my SS Bearing buddies. They work as promised. As others have pointed you may have to file down the grove in your castle nut to get your cotter pin back in ...not a big deal. This is my second set in 2 years as I am in the habit of repacking my bearings on that schedule...so naturally its pretty hard to remove the seal without damaging it. Just remember to order the right set to fit your spindle..,they have a few different ones.. 717150

Nothing wrong with the product. it deserves 5 stars. I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't part of a spindle set, i.e. I bought two spindle sets with smaller seals because the bearing and race sizes were what i needed but the seal in the spindle kit was not the size I needed so I had to throw away the seals that came with the spindle set and buy these. I knew that when placing the order. I would like etrailer to have a spindle set that includes this size seal. 592210

I've an older small utility trailer with grease seals and seal wear rings that are not commonly available. I looked through trailer parts outlets in Seattle and on the web but ended up on-line with an etrailer customer rep. He knew exactly what I was after and had a kit to support it....for two hubs no less! I ordered on Monday with standard delivery which actually arrived the following Friday. With a Saturday parts installation, I was operational for Monday's yard waste haul. BTW: I had purchased the bearing/races locally but the shop only had 3 so I ordered the 4th from etrailer. Their price was $6.83 vs. $12.90 for the exact manufacture/make/model. If I had not already had the locally purchased races installed and the bearing greased, I wild have returned them and ordered 4 sets. Nuts. 573023

Being no handyman I had to enlist my son's help, who's a mechanic. But he was too busy to call and order these parts himself, so I had to do it--and I really had no idea what I was supposed to order other than they were grease seals for my 17-foot trailer wheel-hubs... Luckily, upon calling I got to speak to Kathy who, with immense patience, guided me through until I understood where and what to look for. Even then I pretty much flipped a coin... The parts arrived sooner than expected (less than the 3-day shipping mode chosen) and were a perfect match. Thank you etrailer.com! 453323

Always fast and expert service at ETrailer.com. I had a time looking for the right parts for my Yacht Club Trailer to replace wheel bearings and seals. Etrailer had everything I needed and more. I also added grease caps instead of bearing buddy's i have on there. ( Always have a hard time taking the grease gun off the fittings. ) Love the roller bunks i bought last year too. It's still January, but i will be set to go this spring. Etrailer is my go to place for all my boat and trailer needs. Thanks guyz n gallz at Etrailer. I'm one happy camper. 235840

Had grooves worn in spindles under rear seals. Thought, wonder if there's any way to put a bushing over worn grooves & use an oversize inner id seal? Was tired of grease slinging all over inner rim. This seal kit fixes problem just like new with its ss sleeves.Great product!!!! 204191

very happy every thing got here quickly,parts are all good and are the right fit. little disappointed the bearing buddy kit could not be used entirely, the seals fit my spindles fine and will do the job but could not use the sleeves, would not fit over existing seal surface. overall happy, service was excellent. 193184

Check your axles before ordering to see if you need to replace the spindle collars . Well made but did not need extra parts Originally contacted etrailer for help with the correct seal size for a 2002 Zieman single axle PWC trailer. Seal dimensions measured were approximately 1.38 inner and 1.980 outer with L44649 inner and outer bearings. Thought that the collar was a grease deflector/shield. Did not realize that the collar insert was a separate part of the spindle. Just needed the seals, but theses came with a separate ss inner seal collars for the spindles. My old ones were OK with no grooves cut into them so I did not need to replace. New seals appear to be working fine. 102821

Easy to install, the stainless steel surface seals MUCH better than the original pitted surface on my spindles. Much less expensive than a new axle! Easy to install, but it will push the bearings out slightly (less than 1/8") so the spindle nut needed some modification. 80094

I ordered wheel bearings, grease seals, and Bearing Buddies for my trailer. Delivery was fast, the items were all high-quality, and the videos on etrailer.com helped me install them. I'm especially happy with the grease seals, which include a stainless steel ring to cover the old dinged-up seal surface on my axle and prevent the new seals from wearing out quickly: "Spindle Grease Seal Set for L44649 Inner Bearing and 1.980 Bearing Buddy - BB60005". 75958

Do you have a question about this Trailer Bearings Races Seals Cap?


  • Replacement Hub, Bearing, and Grease Seal Kit for a UFP H-1062-3 Axle
  • To find the correct hub for your axle you typically need to find the part numbers for your bearings and grease seal, or the diameter of the different spots that they sit on your spindle. We actually have had a customer who sent this information in to us so I am able to help you find exactly what you are needing. According to the customer, your UFP H-1062-3 axle has a spindle that has # L44649 inner and outer bearings, and a grease seal that has a 1.979" OD and a 1.372" ID, like part...

  • 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...

  • Bearing Kit for a 2016 Shorelandr Boat Trailer
  • I don't have the ability to cross-reference the bearings in your Shorelandr trailer. However, based on the parts list you gave from their site that I can't repost, the 1-3/8 inch bearing is the Replacement Trailer Hub Bearing # LM48548 the 1-1/16 inch bearing is the Replacement Trailer Hub Bearing # L44649 and then the Bearing Buddy grease seal set # BB60005. I've attached a diagram to help with the specific measuring of a spindle to ensure fit. I recommend using a digital caliper...

  • Replacement Grease SEal for 2011 Zieman S-1 Trailer Hub
  • If the existing grease seal on your trailer is in fact the NOK part # AB1990E that you referenced in your question, then I recommend using the Redline Grease Seal # 13194 as a replacement. This is a confirmed replacement for the NOK model and the difference in thickness you are noticing is simply due to the different manufacturers. This will not have an affect on the fit for the grease seal. The grease seals that are included in the Bearing Buddy Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005 are...

  • Replacement Spindle Seal # BB60005 Recommendation for a Trailstar Boat Trailer
  • Based on the measurements you gave me the Spindle Grease Seal Set, part # BB60005, would be the correct seal for your spindle. Since your previous seal had an o-ring and this # BB60005 has an o-ring also then this would be the correct part for you.

  • How to Find the Correct Idler Hub Replacement for Boat Trailer
  • In order to find the correct wheel bearings, you can take apart your hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you would need to use a digital caliper such as # PTW80157 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see exactly where you need to measure. I've also added a link to a...

  • Can Bearing Buddy Grease Seal be Used On EZ Lube Axles
  • Yes, the Bearing Buddy Spindle Grease Seal # BB60005 can be used without a Bearing Buddy bearing protector. However, it depends what's causing the issue as to whether or not this will solve your problem. I would inspect your spindle and make sure it's smooth and not damaged at all. It's possible the seal failure you're getting is from the seals not being on a good surface to start out with.

  • How to Determine the Correct Grease Seals to Order for a 2002 EZ Loader 21 Foot Boat Trailer
  • To determine the correct grease seal for your trailer spindle and hub, we need to know the inner bearing number installed on the trailer or the dimensions of the seal surface on the spindle and the seal surface in the back of the hub. This will require removing one of the hubs and the grease seal in that hub. If you cannot find the inner bearing part number, you will need a precise measuring tool like a dial caliper to get measurements accurate enough to select the correct grease seals. Boat...

  • Need Grease Seals with 1.375-Inch Inner Diameter and 1.980-Inch Outer Diameter for Bearing L44649
  • Thank you for providing the measurements of the grease seals you need. We do offer seals that match your measurements, and which also correspond to the bearing number you provided, L44649. Part # BB60005 consists of two seals and seal rings, enough for 2 hubs. If you have a tandem axle trailer you will need two kits. For your reference I have linked a product video for this part.

  • Grease Seal Recommendation for a Trailer Spindle with 1.5 in Inner Diameter
  • If your customers are blowing out their grease seals most likely that is due to too much grease being pushed into the hub. Using a Bearing Buddy Seal like the part # BB60005 would give you a grease seal that is more reinforced than a standard one, but a regular seal would also work just fine. The # BB60005 has an inner diameter of 1.375 inches and an outer diameter of 1.980. Since you are looking for a seal that has an inner diameter of 1.5 in you would want the part # 10-9 if the outer...

  • How Tight Is Seal Ring Supposed To Fit On Trailer Spindle
  • I called my contact at Bearing Buddy and they told me that the seal ring included with the Spindle Grease Seal Set, part # BB60005 will work fine on your spindle that measures 1.25 inches diameter. This set includes the steel seal ring, O-ring, and neoprene, double-lip grease seal. The kit includes all parts needed for 2 hubs. The seal is compressed when the hub is tightened down and keeps grease from escaping on the inner side of the spindle.

  • Inner Diameter of Steel Ring in Bearing Buddy Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005
  • The stainless steel seal ring that is included in the Bearing Buddy Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005 referenced in your question has an inner diameter of 1.065 inches and outer diameter of 1.375 inches. This kit is designed to work on spindles with the # L44649 inner bearing and Bearing Buddy models with 1.980 inch hub bores. I have also attached a short video demonstration on this kit so you can see exactly how it installs.

  • Replacement Bearing Buddy and Seals for 1994 Yacht Club Trailer
  • I don't have the specific information on the bearings and seals of your trailer. Since you asked from the bearing # L44649, I can tell you the Spindle Grease Seal Set for L44649 Inner Bearing and 1.980 Bearing Buddy # BB60005 are the seals for that size and have a 1.375 inch inner diameter and 1.98 inch outer diameter. These work well with Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB1980A-SS. To confirm the sizes you need, you will use a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to measure your...

  • Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Recommendation for L44649
  • The inner diameter of the steel ring of the # BB60008 is 1.25 inches as it is designed to be used with hubs that have an inner bearing number of # LM67048. Since your inner bearing seems to have a 1.5 inch inner diameter most likely you have the L44649 bearing (you need to verify this), and the correct kit for you would be part # BB60005.

  • How to Select the Correct Grease Seals for a 2008 Interstate LoadRunner 5x10 Cargo trailer
  • It is difficult to determine the correct grease seal for your trailer without either information from the trailer manufacturer or removing the trailer hub and getting part numbers or measuring. The actual seal part number form the rubber portion of the seal would be the best way to determine the correct seal, and the next best way would be to use the bearing part numbers to select the correct seal for the hub and spindle. For the 3500 lb axle with 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern hubs, there...

  • Will the Spindle Grease Seal Set part # BB60005 Fit a Spindle that Has L44649 Bearings
  • The part # BB60005 should work for you since you have an inner bearing of L44649 and your seal inner diameter is 1.375 inches. You will want to verify that the inner diameter of where your current grease seal is on your hub measures 1.980 inches though. Another way to say this would be the outer diameter of your current grease seal.

  • Installing Bearing Buddy Grease Seal Set # BB60005
  • The inner stainless steel ring included with the Spindle Grease Seal Set # BB60005 has an inside diameter of 1.0645 inches (and an outside diameter of 1.375 inches). This ring is designed to install on the spindle for the grease seal to ride on once the hub is in place. I have attached a great installation video that shows exactly how each piece from the kit is installed. This setup allows for free movement and reduced leakage for a longer-lasting seal. It is not however meant to repair...

  • Seal Recommendation for 2,000 lb Capacity Axle with 1 inch Diameter Spindle
  • Based on the dimensions you listed it sounds like you have a 2,000 lb capacity axle with hubs that use bearings # L44643. That would mean that the correct seal kit should be part # BB60005 but you'll want to also verify that your current seals have an outer diameter of 1.98 inches.

  • Replacement Bearings and Seals for 1976 EZ Loader Trailer
  • It sounds like your trailer uses bearings # L44649 for both the inner and outer. The inner diameter is 1.063 inches like you said. If this is the case then the bearing kit you need is # BK1-150. The seals with the kit are # RG06-020 that have an inner diameter of 1.500 inches and an outer of 1.987 inches. You also may have seals that have an inner diameter of 1.375 inches and an outer diameter of 1.980 inches. If this is the case you'll use the same bearings but seals # BB60005. You...

The axle capacity of your trailer would help also. Once you have those numbers, then we can get you the correct bearings and seal. If there are no numbers on the bearings, you will need to take measurements on the spindle. I am including a link to our spindle main page. At the top of the page is a diagram...
