E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Hub for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube or etrailer Easy Grease axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

  • Correct Idler Hubs for 2013 Triton LT Single Jet Ski Trailer
    The 2013 Triton LT Single Jet Ski Trailer could use either L44643 (1") or L44649 (1.063") bearings so you'll need to pull the hubs apart to see which you need. If it's L44643 then go with the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-1K or if it's L44649 then go with the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-2K.

  • How to Pick Out Hub Replacement for EZ Loader Boat Trailer
    In order to pick out the correct hub assembly for a trailer you are going to need to 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. Next thing you will need to know is what spindle you have on your trailer. In order to do that you can either get the inner and outer bearing numbers from a...

  • Replacement 5 On 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern Boat Trailer Hub for 1 Inch Spindle
    Before proceeding, I'd take a moment to confirm the spindle diameter, because there are two different bearing sets that are very close in dimension, so you'll want to be absolutely sure of the measurement you get. We recommend using a digital caliper like part # PTW80157. When dealing with specifying spindle/bearing ID dimensions a ruler or measuring tape typically won't provide enough accuracy which is why using a caliper is preferred. If your spindle measures 1 inch, your hub uses...

  • Replacement Boat Trailer Hubs with Bearing Kit and Matching Wheels and Tires
    It sounds like you have a standard 1 inch straight spindle. Because it is for a boat trailer, I recommend replacing your hubs and bearings with a galvanized hub to reduce corrosion. My recommendation is the # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K for a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. The # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-1K is the fit for the 5 on 4-1/2 Inch bolt pattern. I've linked the pages to the wheel and tire combinations that will work well with this bolt pattern. You will want to find the closest size to what...

  • Replacement Hub and Tire/Wheel for a 2K Boat Trailer Axle
    I do have hub and tire/wheel options for your application but unfortunately the dimensions you're needing for your boat trailer axle aren't close to standard measurements so you're looking at a custom order through your local trailer shop. With that being said, I'll go ahead and make some recommendations for hubs and tire/wheel combos so you'll be set once you get your axle. I do recommend making sure that your trailer shop gets an axle that matches the bearing and seal specs that I'm...

  • Replacement 5 Lug Hub Needed for Jetski Trailer
    I'm guessing your spindle is a BT8 1" straight spindle as that's the most common. If this is the case then the correct replacement bearing is part # L44643 which has a 1" inner diameter. I wasn't able to find anything with the 2305 number you gave me but you can use these measurement to see if this matches your spindle If this does match your application then I recommend going with the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2K Axles # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-1K because it has a 5 on 4-1/2"...
