Replacement Axle Kit for Homemade Trailer


I bought a used homemade trailer and need to either rebuild my hubs or replace them because they have been run with out dust caps and the seals are torn. The inner bearings are timken 7100 and the outer bearings are marked timken 3062. The axle is tapered.

My research indicates Timken bearing 3062 has an inner bore diameter of 0.6250-inches, which is very small compared to the bearing and hub products we offer. The smallest bearing we offer has an inner diameter of 0.750-inches and is part # LM11949. This is rated for hubs used on 3000-lb axles. We have no hubs that use smaller bearings like yours.

You may find it easier to replace your entire axle with a kit that includes hubs, bearings, races, seals, etc. I linked our page for axles which includes standard beam axles like 3500-lb-rated # 35545I-EZ-89 and 2000-lb-rated # 20545I-EZ-60-15 as well as axle-less trailer suspensions from Timbren that can bolt (or weld) on to the trailer frame.

The linked axle page has filters you can click on for selecting the weight capacity you need, wheel bolt pattern and axle dimensions.
