Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This hub-and-drum assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This assembly has also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.

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 etrailer Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Installation

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how install the trailer hub and drum assembly for 5,200-pound and 6,000-pound E-Z Lube axles. That's going to be a 12-inch assembly with a 6 on 5 1/2-inch bolt pattern. That's going to be part number AKHD-655-6-EZ-K. Here's what our hub and drum assembly is going to look like once we have it installed. These are going to work with hydraulic or electric brakes and it's going to fit 5,200 and 6,000-pound E-Z Lube axles. Now, the E-Z Lube axles are going to be the axles that right here, if I take this cover off, we'll see there's going to be a grease fitting right at the end of the axle.

Now, the E-Z Lube cap as well as the dust cover is going to make lubing up the bearings a lot easier and simpler since we're not going to have to disassemble the whole hub to get some grease in there.Now, the drum is going to provide a surface area for our shoes on our brakes to grip onto whenever our brakes are activated. Our drums have an iron construction with a zinc enriched paint coating on it, so it's going to add to the durability. As well as zinc-coated bolts are going to help resist corrosion. Here's a look at the inside of our hub and drum assembly. Around the edge here, this is going to be where our pads are going to contact and create our friction to stop our trailer.

As you can see, is going to have a nice smooth surface. There's not going to be any gouges. It's going to be a lot of nice machining in there, and then if you are using an electric brake assembly, this smooth machine surface here is where that magnet's going to ride and that's what's going to activate the brakes.Now the seal, the inner and outer bearings are included and the races are pre installed on there, so we're not going to have to worry about that. Our hub and drum is going to work with a 12-inch brake assembly and the bolt pattern is going to be 6 on 5 1/2. Now, another nice feature is that it is going to include all new lug nuts, so if you're looking for hub and drum assembly for your trailer, these are going to be a great option.

Now, we do carry a full line of different sizes and different brands of hub and drum assemblies, but the biggest differences with this hub and drum assembly, is inaudible 00:02:14 give you a lot of the same features that some of those higher end ones have, for a very economical price point. To start out, we're going to go ahead and remove our drums so we can pull off this cap. Let's take a rubber mallet or we're going to tap it until it can come off.Put the cap aside for now. Now, on the top of the nut here, we're going to clean some of the grease off because there's going to be a retaining clip that's holding it in place. Just take a shop towel and wipe off some of the excess grease so we can find that retaining clip.

You want to grab a flathead screwdriver. There's going to be a tab that's going to be in between the two channels here on the nut itself. We're going to bend that tab down so that we can actually turn the nut and take it off. You want to be careful because our brake assembly is not going to come with a nut . retaining nut or washer, so you want to keep this hardware so we can reinstall it. Next, I'm going to grab a pair of channel locks and we're . grab the nut and just loosely turn it so it will unlock it. Then we can take it off by hand the rest of the way.Then we can pull off that retaining plate. We're going to pull this off and set it aside. And then if you need to, again, grab a flathead screwdriver and we're going to pull that washer off that's right behind it. We're going to grab the back of the hub, slowly pull back, and we'll set the hub aside as well. We got our new hub and drum assembly, and it does come with the races pre-installed as well as the race for the inner bearing right here. All we're going to need to do is pack the bearings and put the seal in place. We're going to be using a bearing packer. Let's put our bearing in place. We can take the top, just want to gently work it back and forth while pushing down. It's going to work that grease from the bottom up into the bearing.So you can see the grease is actually coming through the bearing so we know it's full of grease and it never hurts just to take a little bit of the excess and go around, make sure it got all the way in there. If we flip our drum over, we're going to take our inner bearing, which is going to be the larger of the two. You want to make sure that that cone shape is going towards the outside. We're going to drop it in place, and it's going to sit right inside that race right there. Then we can take our seal, that's going to go right over the bearing we just put in. Now, normally you would use a seal driver to put it in place. If you don't have a seal driver and you don't want to pick one up, you can use a block of wood to drive that seal in place.You're just going to want to run your finger around the edge to make sure it's all nice and even. Now, just for good measure, I'm going to clean the end of the axle off nice and good. Just get all that old grease off, in case there's any kind of contaminants inside of it. We'll just take some fresh, clean grease. I'm going to apply it right to the axle shaft, making it slide a little bit easier when I put my hub and drum assembly back in place, and also I don't have to use so much grease when I go to fill it up on the E-Z Lube . on the end there. Then we can take our drum assembly, we're going to slide it over, going to slide it on, make sure that it's seated all the way back on the axle. Then we can take our outer bearing and slide it into place, make sure that's pushed in all the way.We're going to take our large flat washer, going to line up the notch on the end of the axle with the washer, then we can take our keeper ring, put that back in place, and then thread the nut back on as well. WE can come back with those channel locks. We're going to tighten up the nut on the end, until it's nice and snug. Once we get that nice and tight, we're going to back it off just a little bit so we can see that that little keeper pin in there . that little notch . is right before this notch in our nut. Again, we're just going to back it off just a little bit, until inaudible 00:07:12 get that keeper in line in one of the notches. Then we can take our flathead screwdriver, and we're going to bend it back up, preventing that nut from turning. It's always a good idea to go ahead and come to the fitting here at the end. We're going to fill it up with grease.When you're filling it up, you're just looking for a little bit of grease to start coming out around the edge of the bearing there. That's when you know that you're going to have enough grease and it's completely full. Now our hub and drum assembly is going to come with the new grease cap. We can just put it over the end of our axle here. I'm going to take a rubber mallet and loosely just going around the cap, tap it into place. Our kit's going to even come with a new rubber cover for the cap so that whenever we do need to grease it, we can just pop it out and our grease fitting will be right there. With this hub and drum assembly in place, we're going to go ahead and repeat that for the other remaining positions. That'll finish up your look at the trailer hub and drum assembly for 5,200 and 6,000-pound E-Z Lube axles. .That's going to be part number AKHD-655-6-EZ-K.

Etrailer best place ever for those hard to find trailer parts. Best prices and fast delivery. Thanks etrailer! 442443

Our Flat bed trailer can do some pretty heavy work however we do not use this trailer all the time. When the brakes failed we ordered from etrailer and the parts came in and we installed them without much ado. Thank you for having all the parts we needed. After a year of seldom but heavy usage the self adjusting brakes are still working splendidly. 409004

I needed to replace wheel studs on ALKO hub. The etrailer prices for a complete new hub, nuts, bearings and free shipping promotion made it an easy choice to buy (2) new hubs and (2) electric brake assemblies rather that trying to repair my brakes and resurface my drums. Madison P. helped me to remember the backing plate mounting screws so I wasn't dealing with rusty, stripped fasteners. This will be a nice easy project using all new components rather than trying to find compatible components for ALKO axle. The order was shipped the same day even though I ordered late in the afternoon. The graphical tracking was fun to watch as the shipment progressed. I'll be curious to watch the how-to videos. I'm sure they give many people the knowledge to complete the installation with confidence. I'll look forward to my next purchase from etrailer.com 575228

Just finished installing these drums with magnets I purchased elsewhere (etrailer was out of stock). The fit and finish of the brakes drums is very good. The boss design around the studs should allow more airflow and provide better cooling. The longer studs will most likely accommodate alloy wheels if you have them or are thinking about an upgrade. One of the inner bearings had a small deformity in the cage but I was able to fix it with no problem. Also, the spring came out of one of the inner seals which took a bit of work to get repaired but, all is well now. As has been reported, the caps just don't go on like they should. For me, it was a simple matter of reinstalling the OEM caps and all is well. 438262

I was glad to see that the bearing races were already in the hub. This made installation a lot quicker. I read some of the reviews before I ordered mine. Some people were having trouble with the cap being hard to get on because it was too tight. I had the same problem. I did get mine on but it doesn’t look like a new cap anymore. Other than the cap I was very pleased. 549519

I purchased this hub assy to replace a bad hub on a Lippert 5200# axle (race was spinning). Also replaced brake shoes on both sides of axle using shoes ordered at same time hub was ordered from e trailer. Hub & brake shoes have been installed and tested. All works fine. The replacement hub and shoes were an exact match to old parts except for some minor casting differences in replacement hub exterior. Hub and brake shoes were shipped in the same carton and although hub movement squashed a brake shoe box in transit all parts were there and none had damage. Parts arrived 1 day ahead of schedule. Hub assy is very complete, I only needed to supply grease and cotter pin. I was unable to install new hub dust cover supplied for some reason, seemed oversize, but old one fit fine. I will use e trailer again because of my positive experience with my order, Thanks. 281384

No problems at all, 700 miles, no noise. I would buy again.

The hubs bearings and seals are outstanding products and pretty simple to install. I had a small issue with the dust caps as they were to tight to just tap into the hub. I like the fact that the wheel studs in these hubs are a little longer than factory parts! Great Product. 382234

I just finished replacing a brake drum on my fifth wheel travel trailer . This new one purchased from e trailer, fits great! Easy to install! I am most impressed with the service and ease of ordering and being able to track my order daily. This order was even sent to me quicker than what I originally thought it would arrive. This is my second order from e trailer, and I will be ordering from them again when I need parts for my fifth wheel travel trailer. Great service! 690735

Hub and drum assembly fell apart in the center within one year! Bearings look fine! 634577

This was way easier than expected, the hardest part was the mess inside, but installing the kit per the online video instructions was a snap and I encourage anyone to do theirs. Here's a couple after pictures. 542919

Working great!

Received 4 total brake sets, backing plates with shoes, drums, lugnuts, bearings and seals. All very good quality. Only gave a 4 star as I was amazed the 5 backing plate bolts "were not" included. Everything else was so complete. I have spent fair amount of time rounding up 20 3/8"X1"-24 grade 5 bolts and nuts. Seems that today no one stocks many of these causing me to run around trying to round up a total of 20 each. I live 15 miles from town so I spent some valuable time for something I thought would surely be included in an otherwise complete package. That being said, I am very pleased with etrailer.com in every other aspect. They are very helpful on the phone information also. 303799

- AKHD-655-6-EZ-K

Everything fit fine but the assembly didn’t come with the spindle nut, d washer or spindle nut retainer,.. it’s taken me 3 days to find them locally because I don’t have time for shipping and not willing to pay 65.00 for overnight on 16.00 parts.. it doesn’t work without them so I thought they were part of the assembly. 505558

In many cases folks will reuse their existing spindle nut and D-washer. All the included parts are shown in the product description photos.

The hubs were well greased and had bearings/races pre-installed. It could not have been easier to install the new assembly. Inclusion of castle nuts/cotter pins would have made the kit complete. 800027

I finished the install no problems. Looks good. What really impressed me is that I had a question about the product and if it would work for my application. The lady that answered my question over the phone knew the answer and all the caveats associated with the question off the top of her head. I was surprised. It's unusual these days to talk to a customer support specialist and actually knows the product and the issues associated with it. 734383

  • Replacement for Lippert 5200-lb Axle on 2006 Holiday Rambler 5th Wheel
    Thank you for the information on your Lippert axle. My contact at Lippert advised that they need more information to identify your axle. The number 123322 does not correspond to their serial numbers and might be a general part number. What you want to find is a number starting with '045' or '019', or 'V000' plus more digits, or 'NV' plus six more digits.

The weight capacity of the hub itself (for a single hub) is 3,000 pounds.

  • Want To Convert Hub And Drum Assembly From 5 On 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern To 6 On 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    Yes, it is possible. You will need to use a hub and drum assembly that works with the 3,500-lb axle on your 2015 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 195RB Travel Trailer. To get the right fit, you need to match up everything to your bearings sizes which are stamped on them. If you can not find your sizes, you can measure your bearings with a digital caliper like Item # PTW80157 ("how to" video attached if you need it).

  • Converting from 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Trailer Hubs to 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Hubs
    We have a large selection of trailer hubs with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. In order to determine if any of these will fit onto the spindle for your trailer, you will need to remove one of the hubs and check for the bearing numbers on the existing unit. The numbers should be stamped onto the bearings themselves. If you cannot locate them, you can also take a few measurements along the trailer spindle where the bearings sit. I have attached an image that shows where these measurements...

  • Can Self-Adjusting Brakes Be Added As Replacements For Regular Brake Assemblies?
    If your 5th wheel trailer doesn't have self adjusting brakes, that is a very easy upgrade. You can just swap them out as you mentioned. Based on the hubs you were looking at, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA. These assemblies will need the initial adjustment at installation and then will self-adjust from that point. These assemblies will be labeled so you install them on the correct side of...

  • Replacement Hub/Drum and Self-Adjusting Brake Assembly Recommendation for a Lippert 5,200 lb Axle
    For a hub/drum that will fit your Lippert 5,200 lb axles you would want the hub part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K that have the same 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern you said you have.

  • Determining Axle Capacity on 1978 Enclosed Gooseneck Trailer
    Based on the information you provided in your question, the axles on your gooseneck trailer most likely have either a 5,200 pound or 6,000 pound capacity. As you mentioned, based on your measurements, at minimum these are 5,200 pound axles. And with a 6 lug hub, most likely they are not 7,000 pound (or greater) axles. It will be difficult to determine if they are 5,200 or 6,000 pound axles, as both axles typically use the same inner and outer bearing combinations. For example, the etrailer.com...

  • Will etrailer EZ Lube Hub AKHD-655-6-EZ-K Fit an AL/KO Axle Rated for 4400 Pounds
    We have a hub and drum for 4400 pound axles but it uses bearings that are not compatible with the spindles on your trailer axle. You would need to go with a hub and drum that has bearings that are compatible even if that assembly is rated higher than the axle (you would still be limited to the axle capacity). The 15245 is a race number. The bearing associated with that race is 15123. So you can use hub and drum assembly # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K. This assembly is compatible with 15 to 18-1/2...

  • Recommended Replacement Axles for Old Dexter Axle #11 5,200 lb Torsion Axles
    I reached out to my contact at Dexter Axle who said that based off of the numbers you sent in it sounds like you have a #11 Torsion axle rated for 5,200 lbs that is on a Haulmark Trailer manufactured back in 2001 (at least the axle was). Your axle should use 6 lug hubs with EZ-Lube spindles and that it has a 95" hub-face measurement with a 75-3/4" outside bracket measurement (which would be equivalent to spring-center). The closest thing that we have to this is the Dexter Trailer Axle...

  • How to Raise a 2005 Jayco Jay Feather 18F
    I do have an option for you but there would be no way to lift your trailer using your existing half torsion axle system as they just don't make anything to allow for this. The only option you have to raise the trailer would be to install a new system with built-in lift like the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # ASR3500S06 which will retain the same torsion axle design and install in a very similar fashion which you can see in the attached install video. This will be the...
