Video Transcript for Trailer Bearings Races Seals and Caps Rebuild

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take you through the rebuild process on a couple of hubs. We've got an idler hub, and here we've got a hub and drum assembly. Works with electric rigs, but this can also work for just standard discs, if you've got a disc brake style setup.Basically what we're going to show you is how to get all of the bearings out. How to remove the seal. How to remove the race's if they're damaged, then get them replaced in the proper manner. We'll show you how to use an easy loop hub, which we have here.The first thing we are going to need to do is, get the grease cap off the end.

It can have either a rubber plug in it like this one does, or it can be a solid metal cap.These are pressed fit in there, basically by tapping on them on the back side. To remove them, a deadbolt hammer is typically what we're going to use. We're just going to start tapping as we go around. You'll see a little separation start right here, and slowly it'll work it's way off.Now the next step's going to vary a little bit depending on your axle setup. Do you see this is going to have a keeper that goes around the nut.

And that prevents that from being backed off, or removed. A lot of times you'll have a castle nut, which will have just little tabs that stick off, and there will be a cotter pin that passes through it. Just depending on your application, you need to get the keeper for the nut off. This style we just kind of pry out. A cotter pin you would just remove of course.Once we have that off ...

We'll start to take off the nut here, and the washer that's in behind it. Now yours should look a whole lot more dirty than this. There should be a lot of grease packed in, and through the hub, this one's brand new. We thought it'd be nice to show you the components before the grease was on .. Of our washer that comes off.And then here we're going to have our outer bearing.

Continue to pull that. We're gonig to have our inner bearing here. That sits in the backside of the hub. And we didn't put it in yet, we will show you how to put it in. But a seal would typically be covering the backside here. We'll show you how to use a seal removal tool, or another tool. To get that pried up and out. To get an access to that inner bearing.Now for a drum style like this, that process for disassembly is going to be just the same. One thing to keep in mind if you're using a disc brake setup. You'll have to remove the caliper before the disc is going to come off.Now once we have the spindle exposed, as we said this is going to be really greasy. We want to get all the grease removed, and the first thing we'll do is inspect it. We want to make sure that it looks just like what we have here. Everything's nice and smooth. We don't see any kind of discoloration, or any marring on the metal. Indicating that our bearing's got hot.If you do have any of those symptoms, at this point it's time to replace those bearings. You don't want to repack them. Get new bearings, and put in there. You might have a bearing that's come apart in here. Another surface to ensure is in good condition, is where your seal is going to go. That helps seal all the grease inside of our hub. With a damaged or broken seal, that grease is going to seep out. Either out of the hub, or in this case into our brake assembly.Now if your axle has brakes, we're also going to check the disc. Make sure it doesn't have any issues, or your hub. And this is going to be a hub and drum assembly. The brakes are going to ride on this machine surface. You're going to check that for signs of excessive heat, discoloration, or cracking. And this is our magnet surface. We'll check that surface for the same issues.Now inside the hub regardless if it's a disc brake, it's a drum brake like this. Or just a standard idler style hub. You're going to have an outer race. Would be right here, it's a small tapered piece of metal your bearing sits in, and rotates on. That's basically the outer portion of the bearing.You have the same thing here on the backside. This is called the inner race. Now if those show any signs of wear, overheating, or cracking. Those are also something we'll need to replace, which we'll show you how to do in just a minute.Now, with your brake assembly exposed, if you do have electric brakes like we have here. It's a good idea to check all the components for wear, cracking, maybe missing pieces. Check your pad thickness to make sure those are in good shape. Basically if you have a non working brake assembly and you put everything back together, you're just going to have to take it apart and do it all over again to get back to the brake assembly. This gives you a really good option to be able to change them out.And most applications are going to use a four, or maybe a five bolt flange to hold them in place. And you'll just remove the lock nuts, or sometimes you'll have a hex nut with a lock washer. You want to remove those, and then simply slide your assembly off after you cut the wiring.The friction material itself should also be checked for any kinds of cracking, or overheating. If you have any grease inside the system at all, it's likely it's gotten on those pads. It's a good idea to get those changed. Now as far as the removal of the races go, it's going to be just the same whether we're using an idler style hub like we have here. A drum brake like we have here. You can basically see where the idler is, here in the middle of the hub. It's going to go all the way around there, and we just have this extra material here to provide our braking surface.Now if you're doing a disc brake style job again, it's going to be just the same here with the races living inside of the actual hub portion. You'll just have the discs there for the brakes to make contact. We're going to use this little bit smaller one, it's a little bit easier to manage to show you how to get these out. We've talked about where the races are. The outer here, the inner being closer to the inside, but on the backside of the race there's a little lip. That lip's meant to stick out just a little bit further than the hub, and provide us an area to put our tool on, and help to drive that out.If you look all the way through there on that inner race, you'll see that little lip that sticks out just from the hub slightly, and it gives us enough area to use our tool on. Now generally to remove these you're going to use a punch, similar to this. Some guys will use a screwdriver. Or a piece of pipe. If you have a piece of pipe that's small enough to fit inside of that diameter, you can take that down through and allow it to rest on that lip.Use our punch, and then just need a hammer. And we'll start working that out. We're going to tap all the way around. Kind of equally, and evenly apply the force to get it to come on out of the bottom for us.You can see now as it starts to come out there's going to be a little gap created between the hub and the race. And we can just keep going, bringing it on out. Then you can inspect the inside of the hub surface there. Make sure no damage or anything has occurred, and repeat that same process for the outer race if you plan on removing and replacing that one.Now in the outer flat edge, you can see we're going to have our tapered edge on this side. If we roll our race over to the flat side, typically there's going to be a manufacturers part number on there. That will help you identify which race it is, that you need to go back in your system. If those are rubbed off, worn off, if you can't read them. You can measure the outside, to outside diameter of the race here. It's a good idea to use a micrometer to get it exact.Now here's your basic micrometer. And again, the outside of the race is what we're going to need to measure. You want to go . I set the thickest point there. Looks like this one's going to be about 1.98. That's going to be the measurement you'll want to supply.Now while we've got this out, let's also look at the proper way to measure our bearing. Instead of the outside for the bearing, we need to measure the inside diameter. That's going to be pretty simple. Let's pull that out, find the largest measurement we can. Which here, looks like it's going to be 1.03. With that information, we'll be able to get the correct bearing, and the correct race, so they'll fit together properly and make a full bearing kit for us.Now here's the race, we're going to show you how to get this put back in. Basically just going to press fit inside of our hubs. We need to get it down on there. Kind of like that. And you'll have a couple options. A lot of times you're going to see do it yourself or at homer, just going to use a wooden block. Just place it on there. That's going to get you started, but at that point you'll struggle in getting it to go all the way down into it's seat.Now to take care of that problem, there are several seal drivers that are available. Seal and race drivers that are available out there on the market. It's designed to fit down inside of our race, inside of our hub and get it down there where it needs to go. This is part number ptw83020, has several different sizes, even if you have multiple trailers it's going to do the job.Now the side with the angle on it, is designed to fit down inside of our race. If we use the other side, that's going to be for driving your seal into place. Just want to hold it, and take it on in with your hammer. You'll see, you just want to insure that our race is all the way up against that line on the hub where it's supposed to mate to.Now when it comes time to pack your bearings you're going to have several different ways of doing this. You can just use your hand, is the traditional method. That's going to be the method probably reserved for the very occasional trailer work kind of situation. If you do it once or twice a year, probably get away with it that way.Next you would go to a, kind of a sandwich funnel style almost. If you look inside of there, you can see the bearing. It's located between the two pieces. Just use a grease gun. Start filling that with grease, and that's going to fill our bearing for us. And the third, with this one you're just going to place your bearing down and in. It should be pretty close to center. And then we've got our cone her that's going to go down and secure that.Now I think this style, wastes a little bit more grease than what this style will. This has a dust cap. You can see, you can keep your grease in there, put your dust cap on there and save it for later use. This will be if your going to do it every couple years. And this particular style would be if you're a more regular user.Let's start by showing you how to use a bearing packer. Similar to this. Again, we've just got our grease inaudible 00:11:07 here on the top. And then just slowly start to fill it. Now I like this style quite a bit. I think even regular users might enjoy it, because you can get a really quick visual look at that bearing. You're not going to have to overdo it, or have to much grease.You can kind of see in there now, we're starting to get grease to come out of it. Couple more pumps, we'll be good. You can see we've got grease coming out all the way around. Where all of our bearings are. Got a little bit of excess there. Just take that around the outside of it. And then we should be able to lift it off. And now you can see what we we're talking about. Just a little bit of excess there, that you're just going to wind up wasting.Now we'll take our bearing, we're going to place it right down in our race. And then we'll cap off the back with our seal. Right now our seal's going to fit in just like our race did. It's going to have a little bit of a pressure fit to it. Now very often in this situation, I see people using the four by four method. Kind of here, just placing that on and tapping it. As an option though, if you do have one of these. You can see that's designed to fit right on the top of the seal. And help drive it in.The biggest thing here is, just going to be getting it driven in squarely. You can see, this side's in a little bit further than this side. I'm going to start this side first. Now since we didn't have the opportunity to show you before, we're going to take a look at pulling a seal. Now this is a seal puller, we carry this on our website part number ptw1219. This is meant to hook underneath the seal. And then you kind of pull up on it, and just like our race you'll have to work all the way around that edge. Just bringing it out a little at a time.If you don't have that available. Another option would be a screwdriver. You just kind of get that under the seal, and turn it. And see, that'll allow you to also pop that out. We've taken care of our race. Our inner bearing. Our seal. The last component, before we put our hub back in place is going to be our outer bearing. Now with this bearing, I'll show you the hand packing method.This is definitely . Slightly dirtier method than the bearing packer. When we get grease on our hand we want to look at the larger side of the bearing. This is the smaller side. We have a larger side In between the inside and outside there's a gap. We can see our rollers in there. We want to grab that, and use that gap and shove grease inside of it. Now this is going to take a little bit, you want to work in the same spot until you get the grease pushed all the way through. We can see on the top there we've got a little bit starting to come through.And once we push it in the bottom, and you see it start coming out the of the top in those little drips, it's going to indicate that, that section's fully packed. Just need to work all the way around their outside edge now and do the same thing. Alright, once that's all the way around . The bearing will be ready for use.Now one more thing I like to do. We can see our inner bearing there, and our outer bearing. Well between the two, got a pretty big gap in there. If you'll take a . Pretty good amount of grease. We're just going to go all the way around. See how we can go all the way around the inside and just line that really well. The more grease we have in here, the less chance we have of any moisture getting in there, which can cause corrosion, rust, pitting. Pretty much things we do not like when it comes to bearings, races, and hubs.Put plenty of grease in there. And then this one does have the easy lube spindle, that'll even fill it in more. Now we can get our assembly slid on. I like to keep my thumbs on that outer bearing, just to prevent it from . inaudible 00:15:28 pushed off there. Now we can put on the original hardware that we removed, in taking off our hub the first time. In our case, we had our washer and our nut.Now most commonly you'll see pliers similar to this being used. We basically want to get that tightened down. Once it's fully tightened down you'll feel some resistance in the hub. We back it off just slightly. That'll give us a little bit more freedom of motion there. Something you don't want however . Is any movement in, or out on your hub. You want to be sure that everything is compressed, and you don't have what's called end play. Which would be the play in and out.Once we've got that set, then you'll put on whatever tight keeper yours came with. Get that put back in place. Now with an easy lube style hub, you're going to place your grease gun on the end, and then you can just fill the remainder of that hub up.Now for your typical applications, you're either going to have a solid cap, or a cap that'll have a rubber plug in it. A solid cap's going to be for an axle without the grease inaudible 00:16:51 here on the end. Goes on there. Just knock it on with your rubber mallet. Same with the one with the plug. Just gives you a removable area there, be able to cap that off.We'll show you how to put that on. Now as alternatives as well, a lot of times on boat trailers and marine kind of situations. You'll see a bearing buddy. This is going to apply a little bit of pressure on the grease, you'll fill it up. This kind of comes out just a little bit. That applies constant pressure on the grease to make sure we don't have any air, or anything like that. Then there is also an oil bath hub available. Now this is going to be for use with seals that are going to be designed specifically for oil bath use. You'll have to change that seal.We're using a double lip seal. There are also single lip seals available. Of course a double lip seal is going to give you just a little additional security. Keep that in mind when you order. But let's get this knocked on there now so you can see how that works. We just want to take the cap, we're going to center it. This is going to be very similar to what we did with the seal. And then just gently start tapping it around the outside. And it'll seep down on there for you.It's really going to be the same thing that you'll do with any of the end caps. Now with this side done, it's a good idea to take care of all the other hubs. Get them all on the same maintenance schedule. And as long as you'll periodically check the grease, take your trailer out for a trip occasionally. Just to keep everything lubricated. It should extend the life of these parts, and give us years of good service.

I needed these bearings for my boat trailer. Easy purchase, super fast delivery, and the right product. Installed them the same day and took the trailer along on vacation to the Florida Keys. Launched the boat in salt water several times, then towed it home again. Back home I just did a good lube with marine grease through the nipple on the bearing saver. Since then I have towed and launched many times in salt water and the bearings are still as good as the day I installed them. Good quality product that lasts well if you take care of it.

The bearings fit perfect but I wish they would’ve informed me that I needed A seal to go with it to complete the job. Fortunately I was able to buy one at the local parts store, somewhat frustrating because I could’ve completed the job A couple of days earlier.

Want to help out the next customer looking for the bearing, cups, and seals for 2000-01 tracker trailstar trailer. 1st you have to dismantle one of the hubs and see what trailstar decided to put in there the day they built it. You will find the rear cups and seals are considered "Special for some reason". Not a problem for etrailer, they have them in stock and the quality is excellent and are exact replacements. The parts I had to order were cup L68110, cup L44610, seal 168233, bearing L68149 and bearing L44649. Oh yeah, customer service should get a 10 star review. I had an issue with shipping co. because of new driver in my area. Etrailer got all up in their business for me and I didn't have to do anything. Customer service also called me the next day to see if everything was delivered and satisfactory. We need more companys like etrailer.com . Excellent!!

I could not be happier, What a diiference to have not just good brakes, but great brakes. Plus, the install was so easy, all the hardware was a perfect fit, instructions were right on the money (btw, I'm a retired engineer from a nuclear plant and I wrote procedures, so I'm picky) Anyway, towed the boat 1,000 miles and what a reassuring feeling to know that the equipment is in good working order and does the job when called upon. I'm attaching a couple of pictures so you can see what I did. Thanks again, I will be using etrailer in the future anytime I need something, feel free to pass on my comments

The only reason I do not give you 5 stars is because your web site. When internet ordering, it should instantly state when a part is out of stock. Even nicer would be expected restocking dates. The parts received were exactly what I ordered for my electric brake conversion from surge brakes at far less expense than reparing the internally rusted surge brake system. There was a plethora of information on your web site to assist me in ordering the correct parts for the conversion. Plus there were videos to see how to complete the conversion and how parts were installed and adjusted. Customer service was excellent.

Unacceptable. Please read this review carefully before considering purchase. Pros: quick response to questions (1 star). Cons: See Attached photo, packaging was minimal with all bearing, races and seals loose in box. Anyone That knows anything about bearings, races and seals know they should not be handles or shipped this way. Probable damage has occurred to these parts making them unusable. These can not be installed and used with any confidence. (0 stars, negative if possible)



- L44649
by:

Bearings and seal are spare incase of emergency, they seem to work smoothly but come without any kind of protective cover or box. Bearings should be wrapped in a wax type paper and in a box. If the need come about I'm sure these will get me back on the road. I will buy from ETrailer again but will look for bearings made in the USA

    In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of information. The first thing you will need to know is the bolt pattern of your hubs. This is so you get a hub that is compatible with your wheels. I attached an FAQ article on determining bolt pattern for you to check out.

  • Trailer Wheel Bearings Burning Out Repeatedly After Little Mileage
    Thank you for providing the photo and the detailed history of the wheel bearing issues with your Fleetwood trailer. A potential cause for bearing failure is the castle nuts being over tightened. Castle nuts should be just slightly more than hand tight. If too tight this will put excessive pressure on the bearings and could lead to premature failure. I suggest an inspection of the tires on the affected wheels. If you notice uneven tread wear this could potentially indicate a source for...

    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 to the next notch where the tang washer will fit into the castle nut. Over tightening the nut can lead to the spindles and bearings overheating, which can damage them.

  • How to Determine Needed Replacement Wheel Bearing If Bearing Reference Number Isn't Readable
    If you can't obtain the bearing reference number, you can use an accurate measuring tool such as a digital caliper to measure the inside diameter of the bearing (a ruler or measuring tape wouldn't be accurate enough.) You can also measure the diameter of the spindle where the bearing would ride. Another option would be to knock out one of the bearing races and get the reference number off the race. With the race number, we can usually find its matching bearing.

    We have a bearing # 501349 that would work as a replacement for the one bearing that you pulled from your hub. You will need to pull the other bearing out as well to get the number off of it or use a dial caliper to get exact measurements of the spindle. The measurements needed are the parts of the spindle where the bearings ride.

  • What Causes Surge Brakes to Drag and Lock Up When Backing The Trailer
    When you back a surge brake trailer up a small incline, the weight of the trailer compresses the surge actuator which applies the trailer brakes. To prevent this from happening you can use free-backing brake assemblies that will provide a bit of initial resistance, but will then let loose and allow you to back the trailer. Depending on the make and model of your coupler, you might be able to install an electric brake lock-out solenoid that would tie into the reverse lamp circuit of the...

    When you back a surge brake trailer up a small incline, the weight of the trailer compresses the surge actuator which applies the trailer brakes. To prevent this from happening you can use free-backing brake assemblies that will provide a bit of initial resistance, but will then let loose and allow you to back the trailer. Depending on the make and model of your coupler, you might be able to install an electric brake lock-out solenoid that would tie into the reverse lamp circuit of the...

  • Recommended Wheel Bearings for Trailer with Oil Bath Hubs
    Here at etrailer we offer the tapered roller wheel bearings which are used in trailer applications whether the hubs take grease or oil. The biggest difference between the two styles of hubs is going to be the seals and dust caps. The easiest way to determine the correct replacement bearings for your trailer is to remove the hub and find the part numbers that will be stamped on the inner and outer bearings. I have attached an article that goes over, from start to finish, the step by step...

  • How to Determine What Bearings are Needed for Friends Fishing Boat
    I recommend taking a few measurements on the spindle of your friend's boat trailer to make sure that you have the correct bearings installed. We'll first need to know the inner diameters of the inner and outer bearing and the grease seal. These measurements will need to be very precise, down to a thousandth of an inch so I recommend using a digital caliper. I have included a photo that shows where to measure on the spindle. You can then choose the correct bearings, based on the inner diameters,...

  • How to Determine Which Replacement Wheel Bearings and Grease Seals are Needed for Trailer Hubs
    If you're planning on repacking the bearings, you'll need to take everything apart anyhow. Might as well do it now, since it'll be necessary to determine which bearings you need. The easiest way to find replacement bearings and seals would be to get the reference numbers off the inner and outer wheel bearings and the diameter of the spindle where the grease seal rides. If you can't find the reference numbers, measure the spindle diameter where both the inner and outer bearings ride. To...

  • Difference Between a Single and Double Lip Seal
    It sounds like the remains of a double lip seal. Was it like a rubber o-ring with a metal spring around it? You are going to have to replace the seal so I would just disregard the sleeve. It would go on the outside of the rubber lip though. I attached a picture that shows the differences between a single and double lip seal for you to check out. The difference between the single lip and double lip seals is that the double lip grease seal will have two rubber lips that are in contact with...

  • Looking for Hub to Replace Dico # 45263
    You are going to need to track down a dial caliper or micrometer. I did some online research and wasn't able to find any results for a Dico 45263 hub, but I might be able to get you an equivalent. I'll need some more information to find you a replacement, including the number of lugs and bolt circle of the existing hub, the inner and outer bearing reference numbers, the grease seal reference number and whether it's a idler hub or a hub/drum. Since the numbers are unavailable, I'll need...

  • Do Inner Trailer Hub Bearings fit Tight To Spindles
    The inner bearings on a hub can fit pretty tight. Light tapping is within reason, but if you really had to hit on them to get them to move then you might have the wrong bearing or the spindle is damaged. It sounds like you didn't have to hit them too hard though so you should be fine. I attached a bearing removal and inspection video for you to check out as well.

  • How to Determine Axle Capacity on an Unknown Trailer with No Markings
    Most trailer axles will have an ID tag or sticker located on the axle that will have information like manufacturer and weight capacity. However, over time the numbers on these IDs will wear off or even fall off the axle completely. If the axle is missing its ID tag or sticker, then it is possible to identify weight capacity by the measuring the diameter of the axle tube. I have listed the typical axle weight capacities based on axle tube diameter: - 1,000-lb - 2,000-lb Axles: 1-1/2 inch...

  • How to Find Out the Weight Capacity of an Axle and What to Know to Replace Bearings
    Usually there is a sticker somewhere on the axle, it tends to be in the middle, which shows what the weight capacity is of the axle. It usually isn't hard to find, but if you have an older trailer it might be a little more difficult. Once you find out what the weight capacity is of your axles just let me know and I can recommend the appropriate parts for you to upgrade. To replace your bearings you will need to either take the bearings out of your hub to find the part numbers on them,...

  • How Much Should I Tighten The Castle Nut Onto The Hub
    As there is not an exact torque specification rating for the castle nut on a hub assembly, you will want to tighten the nut down all the way by hand until you can no longer turn it, then back the nut off a quarter turn. Over tightening the hub nut can cause the bearing to overheat and damage your entire hub assembly therefore, I have attached a video that will further emphasize this process.

  • How to Determine Replacement Bearings for a Trailer When Numbers Can't be Read
    Without standard bearing numbers you can still determine what would most likely work based on dimensions of the spindle. You will need to get exact dimensions where the bearings and grease seal ride and we can from there determine what spindle you have. You will want to use a digital or dial caliper. I attached a picture that shows where to measure.
