E-Z Lube-Compatible Assembly for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub-and-drum assembly is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Installation

Today we're gonna take a look at the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assemblies.Now, there are several reasons why someone would want to change the hubs on their trailer. Either age, they're getting very old, the trailer's been sitting for a long time, moisture got inside, caused corrosion that way. Maybe the brake assembly itself locked up on you, it overheated that drum and we've got hot spots or cracking in it. Or you can have these machines where it can turn the drums, and you've just had it done so much that it's expanded too far, so where it's beyond the specification.Now, these drums are going work for 12-inch by two-inch brake assemblies. They're going be from the 52-hundred- up to the 7,000-pound axle, each one, and bearing kits rated for 35 hundred pounds. So a total of 7,000.Now, Dexter provides us with just about everything we're going to need.

We've got new lug nuts for our half-inch wheel studs. You got the new dust cap here and the easy-lube plug. Also, going to have two new bearings, inner and outer. And you're going to have your seal. So all in all, this is a way to completely replace all of these components, get it right back to factory fresh, and you'll have no problems with it heading down the road.Something else that I like, it's going to come with the eight lug nuts that we need, so we're not going to have to worry about our old ones if those we're cross threaded, if we had any kind of issues.

Everything's going to be fresh.Now, these offer heavy-duty iron construction. As you're putting them on, you can feel the weight and the density of them. And they're going to be designed to work with both the electric or hydraulic braking systems. And, as we can see right here, these are made right here in the United States.Now, to begin our replacement process, we're going to need to gather a few simple tools. Basically, we'll want a dead-blow hammer, a pair of channel locks, and needle-nose pliers.

These are really all we're going to need to get this replacement done.The first thing we need to do is get rid of our grease cap here on the end. Generally, we're going to tap outward. You can see that gap staring to increase. It'll pop off.Once that's out of the way, we've got a Cotter pin located right here. Get our Cotter pin out of there.Now, with our channel locks, we need to get ahold of this large nut here and get it removed.Now, as we take this apart, we want to salvage this washer right here.

This is our, kind of our thrust bearing there. And that's the only thing that doesn't come with our new drum assembly. We got new lug nuts, we've got a new cap, new bearings, new seals. This is that one component we want to be sure to hang on to when we put it back together.Now, we're just going to start working our hub assembly off. You see that old bearing. We're going to get rid of that.The brakes are kind of hanging up a little bit. We're going to be replacing those too, so I'm not too worried about them. So I'm just kind of using a pry bar just to get them worked off of here. And we'll slide it off.Now, as you can see, we've got all the grease off that spindle, got rid of all the old stuff. And this is our time to inspect it.We need to ensure, basically, that three main areas are in good shape. You got this ara here. This is going to be where the inner bearing rides. Nice and smooth, no issues there. Same thing out here, where our outer bearing goes.And then right in here on this wider area, you can see where it's real shiny there, that's where our seal is going to ride as it goes around. So we're just going to kind of rub our finger around there and make sure there's no nicks or dents or scratches or anything like that. What happens if we have that here is we fill this with grease, it's going to expand into our brakes, and that's not what we want.This one looks really good. If you have any discolored areas where it looks like it got hot, if you have any cracks that are running down through here, or if it looks like it's kind of been turned where the bearings have come apart and they're going to cause some issues, might be a candidate for replacement rather than just putting on hubs and drums.Now, the first step in getting our hub installed is going to be to pack our bearings. Now, you can do this by hand by just putting a big wad of grease in your hand there and then capturing it, forcing it in through here until it comes out of this upper portion. Or you can use a bearing packer, like what we've got here.Now, this we're going to put our cone down in the middle, and then we're going to force it down until grease comes through. You can see those red driplets all the way around here indicate we've got the grease all the way through.This is going to be our outer bearing. It's going to be closest to the outside. The larger bearing is going to be our inner bearing. Just get both of those full.Now, the larger inner bearing, we want to drop this in the back of our hub assembly. Now, we'll grab our seal and a dead-blow hammer. Now, if you don't have a dead-blow hammer, you can use a four-by-four block and a regular hammer. We just don't want to hit this with a metal hammer. It will probably deform it on us.We want to get that centered really well. We need to knock it down in. We want it to sit flush all the way around, just like that.Now, we're ready to grab our hub, and that's going to get slid right onto our spindle there. Just like that.Now, what I like to do is take our grease gun now, and we're going to pump that inside full. You can see these are not easy-lube spindles. These are standard spindles, but we wanted that double-lip grease seal back there. So now we'll just fill this interior cavity full.Now, we just going to slowly fill that up all the way around. It's going to get rid of any air pockets in there, make sure we don't have moisture that builds up, causes us corrosion issues.Now, I'll take our packed outer bearing. Let me get that slid up on there.We've got our washer. Remember we saved that from our removal process. And that's a new nut that comes with our axle kit.Now, we're going to use our channel locks. We're going to tighten this all the way up.Now, we're going to tighten this down. We're trying to compress everything, get everything seated properly. And we want to tighten that down to about 50 foot pounds.Once we get it there, without rotating our hub, we're going to loosen it back up and then just run it in finger tight.At that point, we've got our keeper. That's going to slide over. Just like that. And that'll keep that nut from backing off.Now, we've got our dust cap. We want to align that on the end of the hub, and with the dead-blow again, we're going . And we'll drive it in until it seats right down against the hub face. Like that.Then we've got our plug. That's going to go right on the end there. All right.And that's the same thing we're going to do for all four positions, depending on how many hubs you're changing.Now, to get these on properly, we want to tighten this in a star pattern. So we'll go from this on to the one opposite of it, come down to this one, and go to the one opposite of it. And you'll want to use a 21-millimeter socket. Once you get them down to the ground, torque them to specification.And that's going to complete our look at the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assemblies.

Overall pleased, arrived on time although boxes were pretty beat up in transit. Not pleased with the hub seal. Doesn't seem correct for the EZ lube Dexter and blew two of the 4 out trying to geese them as specified In the instruction. My old seals where way better and had a two piece look to them and had not failed after 5 yrs of use. Now I get to pull it all back apart and source better deals...... 280363

Was great that the trailer hub and drum included new pressed in races with bearings, grease seal, nut and keeper. The convenience of having everything in one package saves you the hassle trying to look up and order these components separately. Likewise, the trailer brake assemblies. take old assy off, put new one on w 5 bolts. Glad the instructions included proper torque spec. Else - how would you know? Had to lightly sand slight bevel (1/64 ") at outer edge of each brake shoe. Drum fit quite tight or wouldn't fit at all w/o slight edge bevel to allow you to get it started. 717775

You just can’t beat etrailer’s support. They have full knowledge of the products they sell and are great to work with. I put together my wish list to upgrade my fifth wheel wheels and hubs, Steve went through the list piece by piece to ensure the proper fit and compatibility of each item. I felt much better after the call knowing I had all the correct parts. I also called back with a question during the installation phase, I worked with a very knowledgable technician, very helpful. Thanks to all in etrailer. 646685

I ordered this as spare hub assembly for my 5th Wheel RV. We are leaving next month on a 5000+ mile, 3 month trip. I figure if I have a bearing go bad I can swap out the whole hub and be back on the road in no time. The hub is the same Dexter hub that I have on my rig now. Shipping was fast and free, Helen was great, helping me find the part numbers of some of the other accessories that I needed to have spares of. Speaking of shipping I had checked other places for the hub and while the price was similar the freight charges were half the price of the hub. I will definitely be giving trailer my business going forward. 605388

I purchased these to upgrade my Fifth wheel from Six lug to 8 Lug. It is a quality Dexter part and fit my alko hayes T52 axel perfectly. I got these parts in two day! My only complaint is that the bearings and seals are packager in plastic bag. This allows them to band around during shipment. I had a pretty good dent in one of the bearing cages. It was cosmetic, but bearings are a precision part and should be treated better! 495476

Thanks so much etrailer for making me feel so much better/safer about carrying heavier loads in my trailer. Katrina also went the extra mile when it came to customer service and patience with my order. I had 15" six lug hub and drum assembly which held all I could load on them, like I said I just did not feel safe so I went with this hub and drum assembly which came with all necessary items for the install, and it allowed me to put 16" tires with a heavier weight rating. Very pleased. 405862

Great product, I replace my all my hubs and brake assemblies on my 14k gooseneck trailer. I'm a 58 year old women and I didn't have any help with this job. I know if I can do this you can too.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hubs and Drum?


  • Dexter 7,000 lb Axle Hub and Brake Assembly Recommendation
  • Does the spindle look damaged at all? Sometimes bearings can be a pretty tight fit to the spindle but there should be enough clearance to allow the bearing to slip on without needing too much effort. For Dexter 7k axles the bearing surfaces should measure 1.74 and 1.25. You'd want to make sure your spindle matches those diameters. Chances are the spindle may have gotten deformed from overheating and now it's not perfectly round.

  • Lug Nuts for 7K Dexter Axle
  • We have many styles and sizes of trailer wheel lug nuts shown on the linked page. These are offered in either 60-degree or 90-degree coned profile, in zinc, chrome or stainless and for four different wheel stud diameters. Just click on the feature to see the products with that attribute. Most 7K hubs like Dexter # 42866UC3-EZ do use 1/2-inch wheel studs but we have lug nuts for 9/16-inch studs too, like # 6-53.

  • Replacement Hub/Drums and Brake Assemblies for Dexter P-29 SLR D52 Trailer Axle
  • For a 5,200 lb D52 Dexter trailer hub/drum we have the part # 8-201-9UC3-EZ which fits your spindle and comes with the bearings and seals. For a set of self adjusting brake assemblies then you'd want the part # AKEBRK-7-SA and you'd be set.

  • Recommended Parts Compatible with Dexter P12 7,000 lb Axle
  • We do not carry the replacement axle for your P12 7K Axle. We do however have the brake assemblies and bearing kit or hub/drum assemblies to assist based on what I can find online for a 7K Dexter axle. You will most likely want the Bearing Kit, 14125A/ 25580 Bearings, 10-36 Seal # BK3-200 to work with your axle and hub/drum assembly. To get the entire replacement assembly, you want the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 12" - 8 on 6-1/2 # 42866UC3-EZ....

  • Can Dexter 7K Axle Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies be Used on 6K Axles
  • You could use Dexter brakes # 23-464-465 for 7K axles but they will be a little more aggressive than ones specifically for 6K axles. What I recommend is etrailer brake set # AKEBRK-7-SA because they will work on Dexter axles, they are also self-adjusting, the cost less, and the shoe pad material is actually physically cut to the proper size rather than snapped off of a long sheet like other brakes (which leads to cracks and chips at the edges of the pad material).

  • How to Find Correct Replacement Hub for 7,000 lb Axle
  • In order to find the correct replacement hubs for your 2016 Keystone Raptor, since you already know the weight rating of your axle, you need to know what bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your current 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 get back to me with that information I'd be happy to try and find the correct hub for you. If you are unable to...

  • Recommended Trailer Axles for 83 Inch Wide Car Trailer
  • With an 83 inch frame, the spring locations could be at multiple points. If you are replacing axles, you will need to know your dimensions for the hub face to hub face length, the spring locations center on center, and the weight capacity you need. We do not carry any through axles that will fit your application, but we do have an Axle-less system that will work for you and you don't need the dimensions listed above. If 7,000 lb axles work for your application, I recommend the Timbren...

  • Lug Nut Size Recommendation for 5,200 lb Trailer Axle
  • 5,200 lb trailer hubs like the # 42866UC3-EZ have 1/2 inch diameter wheel studs. For open ended lug nuts we have the # CE11051 or for an enclosed one you'd want the part # 12CLN.

  • Can I Upgrade from 6 Lug to 8 Lug Wheels to Help Increase Weight Rating of my Trailer?
  • Because the total weight capacity of your trailer is limited by the lowest rated component, your axle capacity won't be increased by adding hubs with more lug nuts to the equation-even if they are rated higher than the axle. Moving to 8-lug hubs sounds like you want to move from 5,200-lb axles up to 7000-lb axles. If this is the case, then we have a few options for you listed below; I've also linked below all of the 7000-lb axles we currently have available. Best Upgrade: Timbren Axle-Less...

  • Recommended 7,000 lb Axle System For Gooseneck Trailer
  • The only 7,000 lb axle we carry is the Timbren Axle-Less System. This is not your traditional through axle, but will work just as well. It is available in 2 options: a regular suspension and spindle # TASR7KS01 and a 4 inch drop spindle # TASR7KS02. Either of these will work well on a gooseneck trailer application and will replace leaf spring suspension components as well. It will require a cross frame member at the axle location or a 2 inch square tube (not included) to be added to...

  • Recommended Dexter Axle and Hubs with Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies
  • The brake assemblies on the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern # 8327864-EB are not the automatic self-adjusting assemblies. You can instead use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA to swap them out. Another option is to use the following parts to give you the self-adjusting brake assemblies and save you some money: Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles...

  • Recommended Suspension to Replace 5,200 lb Axles
  • Before potentially upgrading, you'll need to use your trailer's VIN and contact the manufacturer to ensure it can handle the extra capacity you're looking to add. If so, you can upgrade by using the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # TASR7KS01 which has a capacity of 7,000 lbs and will replace your traditional axle. These suspension units can be bolted or welded to your trailer, though if you do not have a crossmember above the area you are going to install the Timbren, you might...

  • Interchangeability of # LM67048 and # 14125A Wheel Bearings
  • Although both the # LM67048 and the # 14125A bearings might have the same inner diameter of 1.25 inches, they aren't interchangeable. Both bearings are compatible with a different race or bearing cone. The races have a different outside diameter, so you wouldn't be able to simply swap out the race to change to the other bearing. Both bearings are also rated for a different weight capacity. The # 14125A bearing is rated for a 7000 lb axle, while the # LM67048 is rated for a 5200 or 6000...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Trailer for Shoreland'r Trailer
  • In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of information. The first thing you will need to know is the bolt pattern of your hubs. This is so you get a hub that is compatible with your wheels. It sounds like you have the common 8 lug trailer wheel bolt pattern of 8 on 6-1/2 inch. I attached an FAQ article on determining bolt pattern for you to check out. Next thing you will need to know is what spindle you have on your trailer....

  • Difference Between Hub/Drum # 8-219-4UC3-EZ and # 42866UC3-EZ
  • The only difference between the two hubs is the inside dimension of the grease seal included with the hub drum. The # 42866UC3-EZ uses a 10-36 grease seal with a 2.25 inch inside diameter and the # 8-219-4UC3-EZ uses a 10-10 grease seal that has a 2.125 inside diameter. To determine which is compatible with your existing spindle, you will need to use a digital or dial caliper to measure the surface of the spindle that the grease seal rides against (see diagram).

  • Does Trailer Wheel Hub/Brake Drum Need to Be Replaced if Inside Surface is Grooved
  • Because the face of the magnet rides against the armature (inside) surface of the brake drum, any grooves that had previously been worn into the armature surface will cause the magnet to wear unevenly. For optimal braking performance, you want maximum contact between the face of the magnet and the armature surface of the brake drum. If the drum itself got too hot, you might see some blue discoloration on the armature surface. In extreme cases, the armature surface can warp. It might...

  • Replacement Hub Recommendation for Lippert 6,000 lb Axle
  • Yes, the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-219-4UC3-EZ that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your Lippert 6k axle that you mentioned but you'll need to verify the grease seal dimension on your spindle. You'll need yours to measure 2.125 inches for this hub to fit. If instead you measure 2.25 you'll need the hub # 42866UC3-EZ instead as it comes with the correct seal for that dimension.

  • Can Brakes be Added to Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System
  • Standard brake assemblies can be added to the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Systems as long as the system on your trailer has the brake flange mounted. For example, the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System w/ Brake Flange # TASR7KS01 are compatible with electric trailer brake assemblies like the Dexter # 23-105 for Left Hand and # 23-106 for Right Hand.

  • Replacement for Older Dexter 7,000 Pound Torsion Axle
  • I spoke with my contact at Dexter regarding the axle on your trailer. He stated that the serial number you found is a pretty old number and unfortunately they don't have much information on this particular axle. He was not able to confirm its rating or length. If you are looking to replace the axle, we do not have any torsion axles available but I do have a great option. I recommend taking a look at an Axle-Less System like the Timbren # TASR7KS01. This 7.000 pound system will provide...

  • Replacement Hub and Brake Assemblies for Lippert 7k Axle

This fits 5200 lb to 7000 lb axles that require a 2-1/4 inch ID grease seal. The drum dimensions for this measure 12 inches diameter by 2 inches wide.

  • Locating Replacement Hubs for 5,200 Pound Axle
  • We actually have quite a few trailer hub assemblies for a 5,200 pound axle. In addition to brand and construction, the difference between the available options have to do with the bearing sizes they use, their bolt pattern, and whether they are standard grease or oil bath units. In order to determine the correct replacement hub for your trailer, you will want to pull an existing hub and check for the bearing and grease seal numbers. These numbers should be stamped right inside the bearings...

  • Replacement Studs for a Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 42866UC3-EZ
  • The replacement wheel stud you would need for your Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly # 42866UC3-EZ would be a Wheel Stud # 165995. Also, when you install the wheels onto your hubs you will want to torque them down to spec and then after 50-100 miles you will want to re-tighten them to the specified torque rating to prevent having the studs break in the future.
