Replacement Bearings for Dexter 8-222 Hub  


Hi I have a trailer with Dexter 8-222 axles with welded on backing plates, the trailer has been sitting for awhile so I need to replace everything that is replaceable on these


Expert Reply:

I looked up your Dexter 8-222 Hub and was able to find the inner and outer bearing numbers as well as the grease seal used. It looks like this particular hub was designed for mobile homes and these, for the most part, have more unique bearings and bolt patterns because they are technically manufactured for one time use only and not meant to be altered or replaced.

Because of this, there is unfortunately not a 6 on 5-1/2 inch hub available that will be compatible with your trailer's axle spindle.

If you simply need replacement bearings and seals, you will use # L68149 for the inner and # LM67048 for the outer. For the Grease Seal you will need # 10-40.

If you need your assemblies functioning as well then it would be best to get a new axle since what you have is welded on and rusted to the point of near failure.
