Video Transcript for TryRyde Tang Type Replacement Spindle Washer Review

Today, we're going to show you a replacement tang type spindle washer from True Ride, part number 5-101. This is our tang washer, right here. You can see it's flat. It's got thickness of a 1/32 of an inch and here's our 2 tabs right here, for tangs. What happens is, when you install this, you bend 1 of these tangs up into a slot for your casting nuts, that's what holds your cast nut in place and keeps it from backing off.

It's pretty simple to install, let's go ahead and do it right now. A couple stipulations . Your spindle will have to be a D type spindle, also this is only going to work with a 1 inch spindle. To install it, the flat spot on the spindle, goes where the tangs are, you slide it in place. I'll install the casting nut and we'll go ahead and tighten it down. We'll run our casting nut on until it stops, then you can back it off just a little bit. Then we'll select 1 of the tangs to bend down. We'll use a flatblade screwdriver to bend down the tab over the tangs that fits in the notch, here, on the casting nut.

Get it started, then push down on it and you see, our casting nut is locked into place. It still has movement, like it should, and you're good to go. And that will finish it for the tang type replacement spindle washer from True Ride, part number 5-101.

Please see the attached picture of the broken parts I found when inspecting the wheel bearing on my boat trailer. I was unaware of the tang wheel bearing washer assembly until I visited your website and watched the installation video. I had never seen any other method than the cotter pin assembly to retain the bearing on the axle. I was glad to see the the actual way the washer was manufactured. It didn't seem right that the small tab alone cold retain the bearing. Thank you for the video and the prompt delivery of the needed parts.

Before ordering these Replacement parts on etrailer for my 2002 boat trailer I made attempt searches on other sites and much to my surprise nobody could match the price or the complete inventory of my needs that etrailer offered. These folks are the real deal



- 5-101
by:

Exactly what I ordered. Came in a decent amount of time. I would gladly pay more for bearings, races and seals from USA, Canada, EU, etc from etrailer if and when they can find producers. This is the place to go when you’re not sure precisely what you need. They’ll walk you through it, no sweat.



- 5-101
by:

Exact replacement. Fit perfect on my EZ-Lube spindle to do the critical job of locking bearing nut in place.



- 5-101
by:

Fit as advertised. Made changing / servicing bearings easy.

Easy fix. Good stuff. Might order a spare in case of an unexpected roadside repair

When repacking the bearings on my trailer, the lock rings were damaged. Unable to find them locally, I checked etrailer and there they were! I submitted my order, which was received in record time, and with the correct item. I do a fair amount of ordering online, and etrailer sets the standard in my opinion. Communication and follow-up from etrailer is excellent. Have recommended etrailer to my friends, and will continue to do so. A+++++!!!!!


Comments
Very happy. My parts requirement was very small, but not available around here. Although this part doesnt generally wear in normal use, it has done the exact job so far, and the service/shipping were extraordinary. Next time I need trailer parts, etrailer.com will be where I go!

I will keep these with my trailer supplies for when I have to pull my hub/drum for brake inspection and reassembly.

by:

EXACTLY what I NEEDED for my trailer! First I went to the local Auto parts store, the first question they asked 'What is the make and model of your car". I should of know better. First question from etrailer... how many do you want! THANKS etrailer you are the best source for my trailer parts. ALSO It was delivered on time!



- 5-101
by:

Everything I buy for you guys is always been quality & Correct keep up the good work thank you



- 5-101
by:

Perfect fit. My trailer was borrowed and came back with a replaced hub - while servicing the hubs I noticed that the replaced hub did not have one of these installed. Scary. Ordered one from Etrailer and had it a few days later, shipping was cheaper than running all over town trying to run this part down.


Comments
Thanks for taking the time to follow up with me. Ive only put a few hundred miles of use on the trailer but everything is working great. Ive actually recommended etrailer to my father, a friend of mine and anyone at work who would listen made easier by the fact that I had everything I ordered shipped to my job instead of home. Barring an emergency situation that requires an immediate solution you have my business in the future.

helped me find what I needed and shipped it faster than I ever expected. I will do business here again.



- 5-101
by:

I was very pleased with the delivery speed and price from etrailer. In addition to that the new locking washers appeared to be manufactured from thicker material. I believe the thicker material makes a quality and long lasting part. The last observation I want to tell you is the part was not available from local auto parts store where I reside. The part appeared immediately on your website. You get a five star rating.



- 5-101
by:

This boat trailer came with Tie-Down brake components, and I believe they were bought out by Dexter. Trying to find these specific part numbers on-line was virtually impossible. Thanks to bits and pieces I could glean from this website I made a calculated guess for proper replacement components -- including these clips and grease seals. Most of my applications used cotter pins, so this configuration is a little more involved if you suddenly find the old part no longer is functional. Best I can tell everything seems to be working correctly.

  • Method for removing and Installing Tang-Style Spindles Washers
    A replacement tang-style spindle washer like part # 5-101 is intended to be installed behind the castle nut and have its prongs bent down so that they prevent the castle nut from rotating on an E-Z Lube type spindle. The castle nut holds the washer in place, of course, and the washer's prongs fold down into the gaps in the nut to prevent it from loosening on the spindle. The removal and re-installation processes are shown for you in the linked video.

  • Tang Washer Recommendation for Use on Trailer Spindle with L44649 Bearings
    We currently offer several different spindle washers and I have included a link to them for you. However, none of then have an inner diameter of 1-1/16 inches. I recommend using a set of digital calipers to take the measurement because it needs to be as accurate as possible and traditional measuring devices are not quite accurate enough. You mentioned that the trailer takes L44649 bearings. If both the bearings are the same size then the washer associated with the size spindle that takes...

  • Tang Washer for E-Z Lube
    From my research it looks like the Dexter 005-101-00 are tang washers for E-Z lube spindles before 2002. While that's not the specific application of Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type for E-Z Lube # 5-101, this part may still work for you. The # 5-101 washer has a 1" inner diameter and will fit on 1" diameter spindles. I've added a link to a video review of this part for you to check out as well.

  • Installing TruRyde Replacement Tang Type Spindle Washer
    The Replacement Spindle Washer # 5-101 referenced in your question is designed for 1 inch, D type spindles. The washer will install right between the castle nut and outer bearing, and the tang on the washer is bent up to prevent the nut from turning. There is not an additional washer between this and the outer bearing on the hub. I have attached an installation video that you can also check out.

All such items that we offer share this same 1-inch inner diameter, such as parts # 5-23 and # 5-57. The points on your spindles where the bearings ride can have a larger diameter than the exterior point where you will apply the D-washer. Please refer to the linked photo.

  • Wheel Bearings for Old Moore Sled Trailer
    I don't have any information available that would tell me which bearings your trailer used, but I can certainly help you figure it our for yourself. Closely examine the old bearings, looking for a part number engraved on the bearing cage. Get the numbers off both the inner and outer bearing. If you can't read the reference number, you can use an accurate measuring device like a digital caliper to measure the diameter of the spindle where the inner and outer bearings ride, as well as the...

  • Replacement Spindle Washer Recommendation for a Trailer Spindle
    Sounds like you have a 1 inch diameter spindle and would need the part # SW1000 as this washer has an inner diameter of 1 inch. There is no specific torque rating for the castle nut that holds your hub in place. We recommend tightening the castle nut down until it stops, and then backing it off slightly. Having it too tight would prevent the hub from spinning.

  • Tang Washer for 1-1/6 Inch Spindle
    We do not have tang washers for 1-1/6" spindles, however, it is possible you might need a washer for a 1" diameter spindle, because 1-1/6" is the same diameter as bearing # L44649, which goes to 1" spindles. I recommend double checking with a digital caliper just to make sure you don't need a 1" washer such as Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type # 5-101. I've added a link to our page with each of our spindle washers for you as well.

  • Tang Style Washer for Trailer Spindle with Castle Nut
    It sounds like you are looking for the Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type for E-Z Lube # 5-101 if you have the D shaped spindle. If you don't then you will want the Tang Replacement Spindle Washer # 5-71 which has a 1-1/2 inch inner diameter or the Dexter Tang Washer - Type B # 5-59 which has a 1-3/4 inch inner diameter.

  • Availability of 1 Inch Keyed Spindle Washer
    We have a few washers that would work for you. If you want the tang style that can be bent over the notch in the castle nut, go with # 5-101. If you're looking for the D washer used on EZ lube spindles, use part # 5-23. For a spindle with the grooved keyway in it, use part # 165863.

  • Washers Compatible With 7/8 Inch Castle Nut
    For castle nut # 165931, for a D washer use part # 5-23 or round washer use part # SW1000. These are both for 1 inch spindles but are compatible with the 7/8 inch castle nut assemblies. You can also use the Replacement Spindle Washer - Tang Type for E-Z Lube # 5-101.

  • Causes for Hub Castle Nut to Come Loose After Installing and Using Hubs
    A tang washer like # 5-101 or # 5-71 has a tab to secure the castle nut on the spindle so that it cannot rotate or back off on the threads. If the tang washer tab (or a cotter pin) is still in place in the notch on the castle nut (as in the linked photo) the nut should not be able to move. The only other place where slack in the hub's fit could develop is at the back side where the grease seal installs. This is the portion of the spindle noted by the arrow in the linked diagram.

If your axle is rated for 6000-lbs (heavy duty), 7000-lbs or 8000-lbs or is a pre-1989 9000-lb axle) you can use part # 5-57. If you have E-Z Lube spindles you can use tang washer # 5-101.
