Will a 2-1/8 Inch Grease Seal Fit in Place of a 2-1/4 Inch Grease Seal for Hub # 8-201-51UC3-EZ


I have a load rite trailer I would like to use these drums on is it possible to have a different grease seal than the one provided? The one I have on my trailer is a 2.125 inner diameter seal it seems like the bearings are the same. I believe the grease seal I would need is part number GS-2125DL.


Expert Reply:

The 2-1/4 and 2-1/8 grease seals are usually interchangeable but manufacturers have started going to the 2-1/8 model for a tighter fit. So what you would need is # GS-2125DL for one seal or # RG06-090 for a pair. We can't swap the seals out of a kit though so they would need to be purchased separately.

the other option is to use regular hub and drum # 8-201-9UC3-EZ. It isn't galvanized but does come with the 2-1/8 inch seal.
