Replacement Bearings/Seals/Races for Dexter P-29 7K Axle


Im trying to figure out which bearings, races, seals, etc. I need for my Dexter axles. They are Dexter P-29 Model SLR 7000 lbs axles. Serial Number D4055532,33. They have 8 lugs on 9/16 18 studs. I seem to find conflicting info as apparently most 7000 lb axles have 1/2inch studs. Please help!

After quite a bit of searching, I wasn't able to determine which bearings, races and seals were included with the hubs used on your Dexter Axles. You did a great job of providing me with lots of information, which makes my life easier but in this case I couldn't find anything.

You'll need to pull one of your hubs, and get the reference numbers from the inner and outer bearing, from which we can determine which races and seals are needed. If you can't make out the reference numbers, you'd need to use digital caliper to get the diameter of the spindle where the inner and outer bearings ride. Also get a measurement of the seal journal surface and the inside diameter of the inner hub bore to determine which seal is needed.

If you'd care to reply with the measurements you took, I'd be happy to look for the correct bearings for you.
