E-Z Lube-Compatible Assembly for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub 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 Hubs and Drums - Hub - AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-1K Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000 pound easy lube axles. This has the 5 and 1/4 inch bowl pattern. This trailer hub assembly is designed to fit easy lube idler axles, and the east lube axles are the ones that will have the grease zirc fittings on the end of the spindle. That allows you to grease the bearings without having to remove the complete hub assembly. It comes with the easy lube compatible grease cap, right here. When it's installed on you hub, just like that, it make lubricating your bearings very fast and easy. All you have to do is remove the rubber plug on the end.

That will give you access to the zirc fitting that's on the easy lube spindle. Put your grease gun in there, attach it to the spindle, and then just pump the grease in. There's no need to have disassemble the whole hub to get to the bearings. It's a very nice feature. This part does include everything here, shown on the table. It includes the idler hub assembly, itself.

The bearing braces are included. They're actually pre-installed in the hub. Here's your outer bearing brace. There's your inner bearing brace. Both the inner and outer bearings are included.

The grease seal, the zinc plated easy lube grease cap with the rubber plug, and then 5 half inch lug nuts. Now the the hub itself is a sturdy iron construction, has a nice zinc enriched paint finish over it. It is certified by USSA standards and CSA, which are the Canadian standards. A few specs on this hub: it is designed the application is for a 2,000 pound easy lube trailer axles with the BTA spindles. Now it is compatible with axles from most manufactures including Dexter, Leopard, and ALCO. Now the hub flange diameter, which would be measured from this end to this end, that is going to be 6 and a half inches.

So, with the hub flange it is 6 and a half inches. It'll usually use, accept wheel size of 13 inches up to 15 inches. Again the bowl pattern on this is 5 and 1/4 inch bowl pattern. The wheel stud size is a half inch by 20, and the weight capacity on the hub is 1,000 pounds per hub. When this is matched with one on the other side, it will get you you 2,000 pound capacity on the 2,000 pound axle. All these parts are included. I'm going to show you where they go in the hub. Now this part number happens to use the same part number for the inner and the outer bearing. We'll start with the inner bearing. The inner bearing part number L44643 has an inner diameter of one inch. That would go on to the inner bearing brace just like that. Then the grease seal would hold it in. The grease seal has an over all diameter of 1.983. That would go in there. Tap it in to place to hold it all in the hub there. Then the outer bearing, again, the same part number L44643, has the inner diameter of 1 inch. Goes on the outer bearing brace just like that. Then your zinc plated easy lube grease cap with the rubber plug all installed would tap right on there just like that. Again, it would give you access by removing that plug to the zirc fitting. For this video, I'm just showing you where the parts go on the hub, but actually when you do go to install this, you will need to remember that these bearing do have to be fully packed with grease before installing them on you axle. Then the last thing are the five half inch by 20 lug nuts, those will be used to hold your wheel and tire to the hub. Once you get your wheel up on the studs, just go ahead and put your lug on and go ahead and tighten it down. Then you'll torque to the correct specs for your application. You're all ready to go. That should do it for the review on the Trailer Idler Hub Assemble for 2,000 pound easy lube axles with the 5 1/4 inch bowl pattern.

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! 585047

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hubs and Drum?


  • 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.
