The 8-247 casting number refers to a Dexter 10 inch hub/drum with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

The hub/drum uses a # L68149 inner and a # L44649 outer bearing and 10-19 grease seals, part # RG06-050, sold in pairs. For grease caps, use # RG04-020 sold in pairs. If your trailer has EZ lube spindles, you'd use # RG04-040 which feature removable plugs so you can easily access the grease zerks in the end of the spindles.

We don't offer a synthetic grease. What we recommend and what our install crew uses is UltraLube LMX Biobased Red Grease, part # L11390. The red grease is formulated for high temperature, high pressure applications like wheel bearings. It's also non-toxic.
