Recommended 3,500 lb Axle Replacement for 2000 MacGregor Trailer


In reading the thread for the question asked below: “Recommendation For Replacement Brakes For 1997 MacGregor 26X Sailboat Trailer“ The recommended kits looks great but the MacGregor that I have used the same Inner and outer bearings: L68149 Hence render all rotors and idle hubs useless. The inner bearing and seal fit nicely but the outer bearing doesn’t. Is there a unique rotor that uses the same size bearing. Thanks


Expert Reply:

For your # L68149 bearings as both inner and outer hub bearings we don't have a direct replacement option for any hub or rotor assembly. That spindle is not a standard size, so I recommend replacing the axle itself.

You will need to determine what your existing axle's hub face (HF) and spring center (SC) measurements are to determine if one of our standard 3,500 lb Dexter axles linked below will work as a replacement.

For example, Dexter Trailer Axle Beam part # 7359765 has a 95" HF and 80" SC measurement. While the hub face must match up exactly, the spring center may be re positioned (within a specific range).

Any of the axles on the linked page will be compatible with the standard rotors for 3,500 lb axles.
