Replacement Pre-Greased Hubs that Use L44649 Inner and Outer Bearings


I have a single axle boat trailer I use in salt water and would like to replace the bearings and hubs. The front and rear bearings are 44649 bearings. Can you recommend a prelubricated hub kit and replacement grease tubes compatible with that in the hub. Also would like a new set of bearing buddys.


Expert Reply:

For a pre-grased hub assembly that will fit the spindles on your trailer perfectly I recommend the CE Smith # CE13315. This assembly is designed for 2,700 pound axles and it includes the # L44649 inner and outer bearings along with the races and grease seal. The hub's galvanized finish will also offer excellent corrosion resistance that's ideal for applications like yours where you will be in and out of salt water.

For the correct Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors you will use # BB1980A-SS for the Stainless Steel model with superior corrosion resistance or # BB1980A for the Chrome Plated model.
