E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Hub for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub 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"

One year later and all is fine. I use my trailer to haul motorcycles and all the parts from etrailer has held up great.



by:

I bought this assembly because the old ones were rusted out and frozen. After all of the hard work of taking off the old rusty hubs, these went on in no time and work perfectly. I'd buy them again if needed.



by:

Looks very well constructed installation and straightforward came packaged as promised only time will tell how it holds up but it does look well manufacturedExactly what I ordered and the delivery time was excellent. The delivery time was excellent almost unbelievable how quickly I received the package

  • How to Determine Correct Hub For Karavan PWC Trailer
    You'll have to find the inner and outer bearing numbers as I could not find any hub matching the one you mentioned, and we don't have any way of knowing what hub is on your trailer. To do so 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 are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper and measure your spindle where the bearings ride,...

  • Finding Correct Trailer Wheels to Match Hubs for a BT8 Spindle
    You're correct that all of the 8 inch rims we carry have a pilot hole that's in the range of 2.8 inches. Not nearly as large as the 3.275 inches you need. The best solution I recommend is replacing the hubs, unfortunately. I recommend part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K for standard spindles or part # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-1K for EZ Lube spindles. I don't recommend boring out the pilot hole of the rim or grinding down the hub. It will very likely compromise the integrity of either part.

  • Recommended 5.70-8 Tire and Wheel with Compatible Hub for Axle
    We do have some options for you to add a 5.7-8 size tire and a hub to your trailer. For a wheel/tire combination I recommend going with the Kenda 5.70-8 Bias Trailer Tire with Wheel # AM30155. This has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern and comes with a load range of D (1,075 lbs at 100 psi). Since 8" wheels are typically installed on 2,000 lb axles you would need the hub assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-1K if you have L44643 bearings or assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-EZ-2K for L44649 bearings. Both options...
