What Is The Correct Oil To Use In My Dexter Axles With Oil Lube Bath Hubs?  


What is the right lube weight for dexter axle hubs ? 80w 90 was used to replace the lube that leaked from the broken cap.


Expert Reply:

Dexter recommends a SAE 90, SAE 80W-90 or SAE 75W-90 oil to be used.

I recommend the Kodiak Synthetic Bearing Oil for Oil Bath Hubs # XLPROLUBE as it is a synthetic 90 weight oil that helps reduce friction and to keep bearings cool.

Since your cap was damaged and oil leaked out some dirt may have gotten into the hub. I recommend pulling the hub and cleaning up the bearings and surfaces to reduce the chance of damaging the hub. This will give you a chance to inspect the bearings as well to determine if they need replaced.

If you can send me a picture of the axle information tag or serial number I can get you the numbers for the replacement oil seal and all bearings and races inside your hub.
