Recommended Replacement Brake Hub and Drum Assemblies for AL-KO 8490 Brake System


My rv has an AL-KO 8490 brake system that I want to replace as it is worn. I have two axles, do you have replacement brake and hub packages?


Expert Reply:

I can definitely help you replace your AL-KO 8490 hub and drums that are worn. These hub and drum assemblies are for 3500 lbs axles, and there are some great replacement options for you.

I recommend the Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-K. This hub and drum uses # L68149 inner bearing and # L44649 outer bearings. This assembly includes the bearings, races, grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts. This has a 10 inch diameter and a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.

For a 10 x 2-1/4 inch brake assembly, I recommend the 10 Inch Self Adjust Electric Brake Assembly, # AKEBRK-35R-SA for the right hand side and # AKEBRK-35L-SA for the left hand side. These brake assemblies are made to work with 3,500 lb axles. These brakes eliminate the need to make periodic manual brake pad adjustments as they automatically adjust to deliver optimum performance and braking power. The pads are fully bonded to shoes for long life and more braking torque.

I also recommend a bearing packer like the LubriMatic Deluxe # L70025 and LuriMatix LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390.
