Review of Dexter Trailer Hubs and Drums 8-173-16UC3

Today were going to review part number 8-173-16UC3. This is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for electric brakes on a 2200 lb axle. This Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum is designed for 2000 lb trailer axles with electric brakes. The drum size is a 7-inch by 1-3/4. This will work with the part number 23-47 and part number 23-48 electric brake assemblies. This hub will only fit with the 1-1/4 inch brake shoes and will not fit with the 1-3/4 inch brake shoes.

It does have a bolt pattern of 4 on 4 inches and this hub and drum does come with the bearings which in this case would use the same inner and outer bearing which is part number L44649. It will come with the part number 10-6 degree seal. It will come with the grease cap that will go on the outer edge of your hub. And it does come with the 1/2-inch cone seat lug nuts to attach the wheel to your hub. The races are also included but they will come pressed into the hub and drum assembly.

Heres the outer race here and right there is the inner race. All of our hub and drum assemblies will come with the races preinstalled into the hubs. This hub and drum assembly has a capacity of 1100 lbs so when used with one on the other side of an axle you would have a weight capacity of 2200 lbs. I just want to give you a couple measurements. This is a 7-inch drum size so if you measure across on the inside it would be 7 inches.

And it does have a bolt pattern of 4 on 4 inches. And basically, when you have a bolt pattern thats usually an even number of bolt lugs you can just measure from the center of one stud to the center of the other to get you the 4-inch bolt pattern. In this case because the hub center stands higher than the lugs its very hard to get an actual reading. So if the other way would be just go to measure from center of this lug to the center of the lug right next to it either way and that would measure 2-3/4 inches and that will determine that this a 4 on 4-inch bolt pattern. And that should do it for our review on part number 8-173-16UC3..
