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 and Easy Grease-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 or etrailer Easy Grease 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 Reivew

Today we're going to be taking a look at the etrailer trailer hub and drum assembly for 6,000 pound E-Z Lube axles. This is going to be for 12-inch brake assemblies, and it's going to have a 6 1/2-inch bolt pattern. So here's what our hub and drum assembly looks like once we have it installed. Now the drum is going to give us area for our brakes to contact so they can make that friction and slow our trailer down. Our drum assembly is going to have a galvanized finish to it, so it's going to be really nice for those marine applications or wherever your trailer may be close to a lot of water.Our hub and drum assembly is going to be a 12-inch diameter, and the bolt pattern is going to be 6 on 5 1/2. It's going to work with 6,000-pound axles, and it is made for the E-Z Lube axles.

You'll notice that in the end of the cap here we'll have a rubber plug. If we pull that plug out, it's going to make servicing the grease fitting right there really easy. We're not going to have to worry about taking the whole cap off. Just pull the plug out and grease up our axle.On our trailer we have electric brakes, but our hub and drum assembly is going to work whether the brakes are electric or hydraulic. As long as you have a 12-inch brake assembly, these will work.

The drum itself is going to be made out of iron, and the actual dimensions of our drum assembly is going to be 12 15/16-inch diameter, and it's going to be 2 3/8 inches deep. Our hub and drum assembly is going to come with everything we need to get it in place. The cap on the end, the seals, the bearings, and even the races, and they're even going to include new lug nuts.Now just keep in mind we are going to have to pack the bearings and put the seal in place, but the races are already going to be installed for us. Our hub and drum assembly does come in a quantity of one. So if you're replacing the entire axle, make sure to pick up another one.

But now that we've gone over the features and seen what it looks like, let's show you how to get everything set up.To begin our installation, you're going to want to lift your trailer up, using jack stands to support it so we can remove the tire. Once we have the tire removed, we're going to need to remove the grease cap on the end of the hub here. Now typically, we'll take a hammer, and we can just kind of tap it. We can take that cap off, but we don't want to damage it. So I'm going to take a flat blade screwdriver and try and get that edge to come up a little bit.

Then just work our screwdriver and pop the cap off.Behind the cap we'll have our castle nut, and we should have some kind of keeper, maybe a cap like this, or you may have a cotter pin. Either way we're going to need to remove that keeper and move it out of the way of our castle nut so we can loosen it up. Now once that tab is out of the way of the castle nut, then we can loosen it up and go ahead and remove the castle nut. Just pull the nut off, and we can start pulling either the ring or cotter pin or whatever is holding it in place. We'll pull that off. If you want, you can actually grab the whole hub and drum assembly and very carefully slide it out, and that'll bring all the bearings and washers and everything else out, and we can grab them before they hit the ground. The bearing may not come out that easily.Then we can pull the entire hub assembly off. So we can grab our hub and drum assembly now. We'll grab the bearings. We're going to have one large one and one small one. We're going to start out with the larger one. Since this is the inside of the hub and drum, we'll take the large bearing, and you'll notice it's tapered. You want the small section to go down, and it's going to fit right inside our hub just like that. But before we fully put it in there, we need to make sure that the bearing's packed with grease.So you want to make sure you have some quality grease, and if you have a bearing packer, it will make it easier. But if you don't, a trick is we can take our bearing. We can open up the can, and we're just going to kind of scoop it almost like you're grabbing some dip for some chips. It's always a good idea to wear gloves because we don't want to get it all over our hands. But we'll grab a bit of the grease, and we just want to push it into the side of the bearing and make sure it fills in that area. We'll just work the grease around, again pushing it in like this until we make sure we have all the cavities filled up.A lot of people have a tendency just to wipe the grease on the outside. It's not about getting the grease on the outside. It's about getting it in between the rollers here, so that's why it's better to start at the core and kind of just push it in there like that. Let's work our way around until we feel comfortable that there's enough grease in there. We'll take our bearing, and we'll drop it in. So it's going to sit nice and flat inside the hub.We can grab our seal. Now the seal is going to be closed on one end and open on the other side. You want to make sure that the open side is facing towards the bearing and that the a flat side is facing towards us. So we're just going to loosely place it inside of our drum here. Now if you have a seal driver, that's going to be an ideal tool to use. But a lot of us aren't going to have a seal driver that's this size, so a trick that you can do is you can take a block of wood. We're going to go right over the center of our seal, and we'll grab a hammer, and we're going to hit the wood until our seal is nice and flat sitting.If it does start to get on an angle like this, you just need to pay attention on where you're hitting the seal and how hard you're driving it in. We're going to go around, and we're going to feel the edge of the seal and make sure it's nice and flush. We can grab our smaller bearing, and we're going to go ahead and grease this up and make sure we have plenty of grease in there. But you want to grab a towel and go ahead and rest it on there when you're done because we're not going to be putting this in just yet.Now we can come back to our trailer. We want to make sure that our spindle is nice and clean before we put our hub and drum on. So let's wipe everything down. Make sure everything's nice and clean. We don't want to have any kind of debris stuck on there. But once that's nice and clean and we have everything wiped down, we'll grab our hub and drum. We'll slide it into place.Now once you initially get it on there, you are going to feel a little bit of tension. We want to make sure that it's fully seated on there and pushed all the way on. Now we can grab the smaller bearing and slide it into place. Slide our bearing in. It kind of helps if you lift it up a little bit. Make sure that bearing goes in there all the way.If it gets off angle, just grab your hub and drum, pull it out, and it'll help recenter that. Take our washer that came off earlier. Put that over the top and grab our keeper ring. Put that in place. Finally, we'll put our castle nut on. I like to tighten these up where they're nice and snug. Then I'll spin my drum a couple times. Back it off just a little bit until we can get that tab on our keeper to line up with the castle nut. I'm just taking a flat blade screwdriver. We're going to bend that tab up, and that'll prevent that castle nut from turning on there.You want to go back and make sure that the hub is full of grease. We'll know it's full because we'll see it start to seep out around that washer. This will also help out. If you didn't pack the bearing as full as you should, this'll make sure the grease gets in there. So depending on how full you packed it, it may be pretty quick that it fills up, but if you didn't, it may take a little bit of time.You can see the grease squirting out of the bearing right behind that washer. That way we know it's full. We'll grab our cap so we can put that in place. Now if we have any more that we're replacing, we'll go ahead and do that. Otherwise, we can put our wheel and tire assembly back on.That'll finish up your look at the etrailer trailer hub and drum assembly for 6,000-pound E-Z Lube axles.

Putting complete brakes on a dual axle enclosed trailer today. Everything looks good except someone sent us the WRONG grease seals the 5200 pound axle I have calls for a TCM21334TC or 10-10 seal with an inside of 2.12 and outside 3.37 what I was sent was a GS225ODL inside seems to be 2.25 outside 3.37 way to big. Stopped us dead in the water no local stores even had them in stock. Not happy today. I know things willbe made right, but now I've lost the use of my shop and trailer until the right parts get here.

In the product description, it is stated that the drum includes a # GS2250DL grease seal, which has an Inner diameter of 2.25 and an outer diameter of 3.376 inches.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums

  • Does AKHD-655-6-EZ-K Pre-Lubed 3500 lb Hub Drum Need Additional Grease Before Installation
    The # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K hub would arrive with the grease seal, the races and the inner and outer bearings installed. The bearings are already packed with grease, so the hub is ready to install. I'd recommend using some additional all-purpose marine wheel bearing grease like # L11465, and smearing a good coating on the spindles as some extra added insurance. I've linked to a product description video featuring this hub/drum. All this being said, since this is for a boat trailer I'd instead...

  • Will the Trailer Hub/Drum Part # AKHD-655-6-G-EZ-K Work with Trailer Brake Kit Part # AKEBRK-7-SA
    Yes, the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-655-6-G-EZ-K will work with the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-7-SA. The braking assembly uses a 5 bolt brake flange mounting pattern and is compatible with 14-1/2" to 16-1/2" diameter wheels. The hub assembly has a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern and uses an 25580 inner and 15123 outer bearing. As long as all of the above information is inline with your axle/wheels then this setup will work nicely for you.

  • Can I Use the Timbren Axle Less Suspension System on a Boat Trailer
    Yes. The Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 2" Lift Spindle - Standard Tires - 3,500 lbs # TASR35HDS07 has a nice powder coated finish on it, so it can be used on a boat trailer. Because this is a boat trailer I do recommend that your trailer has a cross-beam where the axle is being installed that can be used for structural support since you'll be removing the axle with this installation. This system does not come with hubs or brakes, so if you also need a hub with a #...

    Based on the bearing numbers you provided, the etrailer Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-655-6-G-EZ-K could technically work for you.
