Expert Answers about Dexter

  • Can Taskmaster Modular Wheel LT589DMPWX be Mounted to a Dexter Hub with Flange Nuts
  • Yes, you could use flange nuts with wheel # LT589DMPWX but the hole size on this wheel is 5/8 and the hub and drum # 8-219-13UC3 has 9/16 inch studs. For a similar hub and drum with 5/8 inch studs you can use # 8-219-18UC3. It has the same bolt pattern and uses the same bearings and seal. It just has the 5/8 inch studs instead of 9/16.

  • What is the Correct Hub Replacement for Dexter 8-208?
  • The Trailer Hub Assembly for 3,500 lb Axles, # 84550BX, was confirmed by Dexter to be the assembly which replaced part 8-208, but please note that it does have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern, and you mentioned yours was a 5 on 4.5.

  • Pre-Greased Replacement 5-on-5 Hub for 3500-lb Dexter Axle
  • You can confirm the weight rating of your Dexter axle by removing one hub and pulling its bearings. The included photo shows how part numbers usually appear on bearings. The specific bearings used will tell you the axle's weight rating. Just refer to the linked article that lists the bearings commonly used for various axle weight ratings. A new hub must use the same bearings as the original hub in order to fit on your spindles. A 3500-lb axle commonly uses bearings # L68149 and #...

  • Correct Hub Assembly for Dexter 8-258 Hub and 13-Inch Wheels

You can locate the bearing numbers on the bearings themselves, or you can measure the diameter using the image I've attached. We offer two hub assembly kits with # L44643 bearings.

  • 3,500 lb Trailer Hub/Drum with 5 on 4-3/4 inch Bolt Pattern
  • For a hub/drum with a 3,500 lb capacity and the bolt pattern of 5 on 4-3/4 inch like you said you need you'd want the Dexter part # 845476UC3 which would fit and work well. The drum size is 10 inch and for assemblies you'd want the # 23-468-469 for self-adjusting assemblies for both sides of the trailer.

  • Recommendation For New Boat Trailer Hub W/Bearings LM67048
  • To determine the best size hub assembly for your needs, I need the inner and outer bearings size of the old assembly. Based on our fit guide, the bearings size you sent, Item # LM67048, appears to be the outer bearings which gives me a great starting point. If Item # LM67048 is the outer bearings size then we have a few options depending on the inner bearings size. If the old assembly has inner bearings, Item # L68149, you would use Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly Item # 8-407-5UC3-EZ....

  • Hub for E-Z Lube Spindle on Boat Trailer
  • In order to determine if hub assembly 8-258-50UC1-EZ will work for you, first know that this assembly is for EZ Lube spindles that require a grease seal with a 1-1/2" inner diameter such as # RG06-020. You are also going to want to remove the hub and take a look at the bearing numbers to make sure your inner and outer bearings are # L44649. Normally that would be enough, but since you sanded the spindle, I also recommend you use a digital caliper such as # PTW80157 and measure the spindle...

  • Recommendation For Hub And Drum With Outer Bearing LM67048
  • Based on your information, it sounds like you have either a 4,400-lb or 5,200-lb trailer axle. Both can have an outer bearing like Item # LM67048 but the inner bearing and hubs will be different. For a 4,400-lb axle, the inner bearing will be like Item # L68149 and for a 5,200-lb axle it will be like Item # 25580. I do not know the bolt pattern of your wheels but the most common pattern is 6 on 5-1/2. I have also attached an article on "how to measure bolt patterns" in case you need...

  • Replacement Brakes and Hub Assemblies for Lippert 5,200 Pound Axle
  • For your trailer the drums you need are # 8-201-5. They're designed to fit bearings # 25580 and # LM67048 with the 2-1/4 inch seal # GS-2250DL. For brakes I recommend # AKEBRK-7-SA. Both the left and right sides are included. They are side specific so you'll want to pay attention to the labels when installing. They're self-adjusting brakes so they'll need to be adjusted when you install them and then never again. The grease cap to fit the hubs is # RG04-080 if you have E-Z lube...

  • Bearings and Seal Recommendation for Dexter 3,000 lb Axle
  • Thanks for the picture of the tag on your Dexter trailer axle. From that I can tell you have a 3,000 lb Dexter axle. There isn't a kit available, but I was able to find each of the components you need, which are available individually. You will need bearing # LM67048 and matching race # LM67010, along with bearing # L44649 and matching race # L44610. For a grease seal you need # 58846, along with grease cap # 21-41-1 and cotter pin # 165649. For replacement brake assemblies you'd...

  • Trailer Hubs Based on Spindle Measurements (3,500 Pound Axles)
  • It looks and sounds like your spindles take inner bearing L69149 and outer bearing L44649. These bearings indicate that the most likely size hubs you will need are for a 3,500 pound axle. For an idler hub you could use # AKIHUB-545-35-K. This one has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. If you are looking for a brake drum then you could use # AKHD-545-35-K which also has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. I have linked videos of both of these assemblies for you.

  • Replacement Bearing Kit and Bearing Buddy Grease Caps for 2012 Triton LT Trailer with Reliable Axle
  • The owner's manual for the Reliable axle on your Triton PWC trailer indicates that the bearing used on the axle of your weight rating is # L44643. This part serves as both inner and outer bearing according to the manual, which I linked for you. We sell this bearing as an individual part and also as part of a complete bearing kit # BK1-100 which includes 2 of bearing # L44643, 2 of race # L44610, 1 grease seal # 34823 and a cotter pin. You'll need two kits per axle. The hub that uses...

  • Trailer Hub and Drum Recommendation for Replacing Hub with Bearings 25580, LM67048
  • Actually the bearing info you listed indicates you have a very standard number 42 spindle which we have plenty of fits for. Only issue is that you'd need to go with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. So for that you'd want the part # 8-201-5 with the bearing kit # BK3-300 and grease cap # RG04-060. Then for brake assemblies part # AKEBRK-7-SA which is a kit for both sides of the axle.

  • How to Choose a Replacement Dexter Hub/Drum Assembly
  • Dexter hub drum assembly # 8-219-13UC3 is a replacement for your hub drum according to my contact at Redneck Trailer Supply. This is rated for 7K, has a 8-on-6-1/2 bolt pattern and 9/16-inch studs. You can also identify compatible replacement hub/drums for your trailer by matching up a few characteristics from your existing set up. You'll need to match up the bearings used, the hub's bolt pattern and your axle weight rating. The linked photo shows the usual appearance of bearing part...

  • Idler Hub to Fit Trailer with 25580 and LM67048 Bearings
  • Hub and drum assembly # 8-201-5 will fit your spindles but like you said the bolt pattern is 6 on 5-1/2. We don't carry a hub that fits # 25580 inner bearing and # LM67048 outer bearing wth a 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. With that pattern I'm guessing you have a mobile home axle. I recommend upgrading to the 6 lug hubs and replacing your wheels as well. Part # 8-201-5 is a hub and drum assembly and you mentioned you're looking for idler hubs. If you only need the idler with no brake...

  • Troubleshooting Different Spindles on 1994 StarCraft Tent Trailer
  • I honestly can't tell you. It sounds like the manufacturer just put two separate parts together. It is not normal to find this on the same axle but if you have a tandem axle that is more common. If it is on the same axle, as long as it is functional with the same hubs, you will just need to get the correct bearings for each spindle to make things continue to function properly. The Dexter Hubs like # 8-258BTUC1 can have different bearings and races on the inside. With one straight spindle...

  • Trailer Hub that Fits 1 inch or 1-1/6 inch Diameter Spindle
  • We have hubs that are designed to fit spindle diameters that you mentioned of 1 inch and 1-1/6 inch. If you have a straight spindle with a 1 inch diameter you'd have a BT8 spindle and the hub part # 8-258BTUC1 that you referenced would fit. If you have a spindle with a straight diameter of 1-1/6 inch then you'd have a BTR spindle and would want a # 8-258-50UC1. The diameter of the spindle where the seal would ride on either would be 1.25 inch. If you can verify your spindle dimensions...

  • Flexible Hydraulic Brake Line Hose for Trailer Brakes
  • We have brake line # T0776500 that is fitted with 3/8"-24 thread UNF male and female fittings on the ends. This is pretty much the standard size for brake lines used on trailers; 3/8-24 with 3/16 fittings. An auto parts store is sure to have any adapter fittings. I have also included a link to all of the flexible brake lines we currently offer.

  • How to Select Replacement Trailer Hubs for Old Boat Trailer
  • The key to using alternate hubs on an existing axle's spindles is matching up the set of bearings in the two hubs. A new hub must use the same inner and outer bearing and grease seal as the old hub in order for it to fit properly on the spindles. If you can find a hub that uses the same bearings then you can take advantage of newer and more readily available parts. The photo I linked for you shows the typical appearance of bearing and seal part numbers. If you remove one of your hubs,...

  • Tandem Axle Equalizer Kit for a Trailer with 10,000 Pound Axles
  • Tandem axle trailer equalizer kit # HAP-258-01 isn't a 2-piece equalizer set. It has 2 equalizers and 2 hangers. The equalizers are 14-1/4 inches long though. If the recommended spring is longer than the old springs then the equalizer kit still may work for you. Otherwise we have kits with longer equalizers including # HAP-158-258-02 which has 18-3/8 inches long equalizers.

  • Recommended Replacement for a Dexter Hub with a 5 Bolt Pattern and A 2-3/4 Inch Bolt Distance
  • If the 2-3/4 measurement is from center of bolt to center of bolt, then your current hub has a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-3/4. Hub # 845475UC1 does have a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-3/4, but you will want to make sure that your current bearings will match the ones included with the hub. Hub # 845475UC1 uses inner bearing # L68149 and outer bearing # L44649. These industry standard numbers should be lasered onto the back side of your bearings, or if the numbers are not visible, you can always...

  • Changing Trailer from Hub-Centric Rims with Bolts to Lug-Centric Rims with Studs and Nuts
  • Your original rims are the hub-centric type, meaning that the pilot hole in the center of the rim provides the centering for the rim on the hub. In the lug-centric type that you are switching to the centering of the rim on the hub is provided by the alignment of the lugs. As long as your new rims have a pilot hole that is larger than the center of the hub (to fit over it) and your wheel studs line up and thread on properly then you are all set.

  • Replacement Hub and Drum Assembly for a Dexter 10K General Duty Axle 387A Inner and 25580 Outer
  • We have exactly what you are looking for. If your axles were made before 07-01-2009, then you have the old style 2-piece hub and drums, so you will want the Complete Hub Assembly, # 8-288-3UC1. Keep in mind, this does not include the drum. If you also need the drum, then you will want part # 9-44-1 for a non-ABS drum or part # 9-44-3 for a drum with the ABS exciter ring installed and 8 drum mounting bolts, # 7-245. The hub assembly comes with the races already installed and it includes...

  • Difference Between Trailer Hubs that are Lug Centric and Hub Centric
  • It is easy to tell which type of wheel you have on your boat trailer. Lug centric wheels slide onto studs on the hub and are secured with lug nuts, like a car tire. If a wheel is hub centric, the wheel centers on the hub and bolts are threaded into the hub to secure the wheel. Every one of the hubs we offer with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern is lug-centric. See attached link to see them all.

  • Replacement Trailer Hub for Dexter 8-259 Idler Hub

  • How to Select Hubs That Are Compatible with Trailer Spindle

These points on the spindle are noted on the diagram I linked for you. Once you know the bearings this will tell you which hubs will fit properly. You also need to select hubs based on the weight load that will be put on them. It appears you have a fabricated...

  • The Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 # 8-258-5UC1-EZ does not come assembled. It does come with the bearings, seal, and grease cap but the only installed part is the bearing races. You would simply need to pack the bearings with grease like # L30132 and then top off the system with your grease zerk once installed.
