E-Z Lube Design

The E-Z Lube design of this assembly not only makes lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly. 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.


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"

sirs/mams Good afternoon from Seabeck Washington! Your customer service is awesome, this was all due in to Darren and I will be back! I have attached some pics of my application. the spindle was used for an old military trailer, the steering axel is different, as it is not a typical steer axle and is able to rotate 360 degrees. it pivots on a axel spindle and it was sheared off at the base just above the seal area. so i had to cut it out and do a re-install with your replacement and it was a perfect match. Thank you guys again! 672362

  • Which Hubs Do I Need For Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System With Off Road Tires
    Yes the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1THDS01 will work with Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # 84545UC1-EZ. They both use the same bearings and seals, and is confirmed to work together. The idler hub can mount a 13" wheel up to a 17 1/2" wheel, and has a 5 on 4 1/2" bolt pattern for the lugs which are 1/2" in diameter. So if your wheels are 15", have the same bolt pattern and diameter lug nuts it will definitely work. As far as the height of the tire, it will only...

    I reached out to my contact at Dexter but they are having a hard time pinpointing the exact hubs your trailer is equipped with using the information you provided. The 8-286 number you mentioned actually refers to a 9,000 pound hub, which would certainly be out of place on and likely wouldn't fit your 2,500 pound axle. Are there any other markings on the hub at all that you can give me? If not your only option will be to pull one of the hubs and check for the inner and outer bearing...

    You can install different hubs with your preferred 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern on your existing Dexter axles so long as the new hubs use the same bearing set as the originals. This will ensure that the new hubs, such as Dexter # 84545UC1-EZ that you referenced, will fit your axle's spindles. The easiest way to confirm compatibility is to remove the hub and check the part numbers on the existing bearings and seals. The linked photo shows the typical appearance of these part numbers....

    The Dexter 8-283 is an obsolete 2800lb 10 x 1-1/2 inch hub that used a LM67048 inner and a L44649 outer bearing. Unfortunately, we don't have any hubs that would be compatible with the spindles on your axle. Your best bet at this point would be to order a new axle that has spindles that are compatible with modern hubs. We offer a few off-the-shelf axles in standard sizes. In order to see if what we have would work for you, I'd need to know the hub face to hub face dimension and the spring...

These hubs use a # L68149 as an inner bearing and a # L44649 as an outer bearing. They also include the double lip seal, bearings, races, seal, grease cap, and lug nuts.

    The torque specs are dependent on the lug nut size. If the lug nut is 7/16 inch the torque should be between 55 and 65 ft-lbs. For 1/2 inch it is 75-85 ft lbs. For 9/16 inch lug nuts the torque is 95-115 ft lbs and for 12 mm the torque should be between 70-80 ft-lbs. Finally, for 14 mm lug nuts the torque is 85-95 ft-lbs. These specs are all based on a steel wheel and for wheels between 8 and 14 inches diameter.

    Removing a damaged spindle is the easy part - it can be cut off with a torch or saw. But welding on a new one is another matter and requires the new spindle be welded exactly straight. It is actually easier to replace the entire axle with a new one that has good spindles on both ends. This may even be less costly than having a new spindle welded on by a qualified welder. It will also ensure that both spindles will have the same working lifespan, which would not be the case if only one is...

    The three parts you mentioned are compatible with each other. The spare tire carrier part # 413200 can have 5 lug wheels attached to it like the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20537 which will fit the trailer hub part # 84545UC1-EZ. The hub does come with a double lip seal but it does not come with a cotter pin or spindle nut. Since it sounds like you have an EZ lube spindle you would want the part # RG05-100 for a spindle nut kit that includes a tang washer.
