E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Assembly 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"

Rebuilt my trailer axles and ordered all the parts from etrailer after talking with them to make certain everything would fit - it did. The previously noisy bearing was now silent and smooth. Perfect transaction and result. Highly recommended!

Hub and axle arrived on the promised date. Everything was there, even had an extra lug nut. This is good, because for my application I needed to knock out the lugs and used the extra lug nut for this. This hub and axle will be used to build a replica of a turn of the 19th century grist mill.

  • Trailer Hub for Boat Trailer with 3-1/2 Inch Deep Hub
    The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K is 4-1/2" deep. The issue you are running into is pretty common on older boat trailers because they use a much shorter spindle than most trailers today and unfortunately, theses hubs are very hard to find. If you can get me your spring center and hub face measurements (see photo) then I can go about getting you a new axle but that is pretty much your only option.

  • Replacement Hubs that Can Fit 2,000 lb Axle with 5 Lug Bolt Pattern
    The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K that you referenced is designed to fit the industry standard 2,000 lb capacity trailer axles with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern like you have so most likely this will fit but you still should probably check. Take the hub off of your current axle and measure the diameter of the spindle where the bearings ride. If this dimension is 1 inch then this is the correct fit. If for some reason you get a different dimension let me know and I'll...

  • Trailer Idler Hub for 2,000 Pound Axle and 13 Inch Tires
    There isn't enough surface area on hub # AKIHUB-545-2-1K to safely mount and use a 13 inch wheel. The hub would have to be larger to properly support a 13 inch wheel. For a hub that uses the same bearings, can take a 13 inch wheel, and also has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern we have # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K for EZ Lube axles or # AKIHUB-545-2-LF-1K for regular axles.

  • Replacement Hub Assembly Needed for 4,800 lb 1992 Ranger Trail Tandem Axle Trailer
    I have a way to help you find out what replacement hub assembly you need, but you'll need to verify some things on your end as I don't have a list of replacement parts for your trailer available. Since your 1992 Ranger Trail is a tandem axle trailer rated for 4,800 lbs this indicates that you have 2 axles rated at 2,000 lbs. For a replacement hub we have a few different options and it all depends on what bearings your trailer uses as well as what bolt pattern you have: 4 on 4" Bolt Pattern L44643...

  • Finding Correct Hub Bearings
    While you've already pulled the hubs and got your bearing numbers, that is not a common bearing size unless you meant L44649. I recommend using a digital caliper like part # PTW80157 and measure the axle spindle where the bearings ride and then measure the inside dimension of the hub. We can't confirm that hub will fit however until you have those measurements. Included is a helpful diagram as well. After you have gotten the measurements let me know and I will be glad to make some...

    The Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 # 34822545BX which is a fit for 8 inch to 12 inch wheels. The Trailer Idler Hub Assembly - 2K E-Z Lube Axle - 13" to 15" Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - PreGreased # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K is very similar using the same bearings but is a fit for 13 to 15 inch wheels which is a better fit for your 14 inch wheels with the larger flange diameter.

  • Will the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly 34822545BX Work with a 14 Inch Diameter Wheel
    If you have 14" wheels on your trailer then you will want to use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K instead of the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # 34822545BX. The Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly is only rated for use with 8" to 12" wheels whereas the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly is rated for use with 13" to 15" wheels because it has more of a surface area on the hub face. Unfortunately, we don't have any pre-greased hubs that will work for you but greasing...

  • Replacing Hubs On a 4' X 6' Carry On Trailer From 4 on 4" Lugs to 5 on 4-1/2" Lug Pattern 15" Wheels
    Your current axle on your 4' X 6' Carry on Trailer will likely have either a BT8 Spindle # TRU59FR or BTR Spindle # TRU44FR. You can determine the spindle by removing your current hub and inspecting the bearings or by measuring the spindle itself. I have included a image that shows the locations of the bearing numbers and grease seals on your current hub as well as the measurement points for spindle as well. The BT8 Spindle # TRU59FR uses Bearings # L44643 which have an inner diameter...

  • Recommended Spindles, Hubs, Wheels and tires for 1200 lb Piece of Agricultural Equipment
    If a 2000 lb capacity per pair of spindles would work for you, I'd go with the # TRU94FR spindle along with the # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K complete hub which includes bearings, races, the grease seal, the dust cap and lug nuts. The hubs are even pre-greased. The hubs are sold individually. For a compatible wheel/tire combo, use # AM3S625. This is a 205/75-15 bias-ply tire mounted on a white spoke 15 inch wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. If you're looking for something with a higher...
