Review of Redline Trailer Hubs and Drums 8-407-5UC3-EZ


Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Dexter 10 inch trailer hub and drum assembly for 4,400 pound easy lube access with the six on five and a half inch bolt pattern.Now, this trailer hub and drum assembly will provide the surface area for your brake shoes to grip when your brake is activated. This is compatible with electric and hydraulic drum brakes. This one happens to be designed for the easy lube axles. Easy lube axles are the ones that will have the grease zerk fitting on the end of the spindle. Allows you to lubricate your bearings without having to remove the hub and drum assembly.This part will include everything shown here on the table. The hub and drum assembly, both the inner and outer bearings.

The bearing races is included, they are pre-installed already in the hub. The greased seals, the doubled up greased seal is included. The easy lube grease cap and the six lug nuts to hold your wheel to the hub and drum.Now, the easy lube compatible grease cap is nice 'cause that makes lubricating your bearings very fast and easy. As we mentioned the easy axles have that zerk fitting on the end of the spindle. So when this is installed in there and your caps on there like this, it allows you to remove this rubber plug right in the middle.

Gains access to that zerk fitting on the spindle, allows you to hook your grease can up and pump the grease in there without having to disassemble the hub and drum.Now, this is a sturdy iron construction. They do use a zinc enriched paint on the drum, they add durability. They have zinc finishing on the bolts to help resist corrosion. This is designed to work with 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch electric or hydraulic brake assemblies.Again, the specs of this the application is for 4,400 pound easy lube axles. The capacity on just this one assembly is 2,200 pounds.

So, when this is matched with one on the other side it'll meet your 4,400 pound maximum rating. Bolt pattern on this is six on five and a half inches. The wheel stud size is a 1/2 inch by 20. The actual drum dimension we're gonna measure. Inside is 10 inches, and the width is actually 2-1/2 inches.Now, the bearing, the races and the seal they are all included.

We're gonna go through them here. The outer bearing, which is part number LM67048, has a 1.25 inch inner diameter. That'll go right into the outer bearing race that's already installed in the hub just like that. The inner bearing, it's part number L68149, has a 1.378 inner diameter. That'll go into the inner bearing race just like that. The race as we mentioned are all installed in there. The grease seal, it's part number 10-19, has an inner diameter of 1.719 outer diameter of 2.565. After your bearings put in there then your grease seal would go right over that. The grease cap we mention is an easy lube grease cap, has a center rubber plug. When your outer bearing is installed the cap would just go on right over that. Again, has the plug that you can remove to gain access to the zerk fitting. Then the lug nuts, it includes six of the 1/2 inch by 20 size lug nuts, part number X1023R.But that should do it for the review on the Dexter 10 inch trailer hub and drum assembly for 4,400 pound easy lube axles with the six on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern.
