  • The Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3.5K E-Z Lube Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K is sold individually, so you would need to order a quantity of two to get a pair.

  • Do Hubs/Drums Comes with the 7" Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit
  • The Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # 23-47-48 does not come with hubs/drums. If you would like to add these as well you'd need the Easy Grease Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2K Axles part # AKHD-545-2-EZ-2K for L44649 (1.063") or part # AKHD-545-2-EZ-1K for L44643 (1") bearings. These are a great cost effective pairing which will work well with these brakes.

  • How To Determine What Replacement Hub And Drum Will Work On Trailer
  • When changing the hub and drum on your trailer you will need to know a few things. Most important, you will need to know what bearings you need. The easiest way is to take the hub and drum off your trailer and get the part number of the bearings on the trailer. If you cannot find the part number you will need to measure the spindle with a digital caliper like part # PTW80157 at the locations shown in the attached photo. After you get the measurements you can let me know what you come...

  • Can a Hub/Drum Be Installed on Axle Without Electric Brake Assembly
  • If your trailer axle is not equipped with electric drum brake assemblies like # 23-27 from Dexter you could still have a hub/drum assembly like # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K in place, however the inside surface of the drum would likely develop some corrosion from exposure to moisture. If your intention is to install the hub now and later add the electric brake assemblies this would be okay provided that the lack of braking does not bring the trailer into violation of your local laws or present an...

  • The brakes you mentioned are for 7,000 lb axles and are 12-inch assemblies, similar to the Dexter Electric Trailer Brake Kit # 23-180-181, but that is just one part of the equation in regard to determining the correct hub and drum. In order to determine the correct hub and drum for your 7k axle(s) you will need to know what bearings and grease seal you have.

  • Does AKHD-655-6-EZ-K Pre-Lubed 3500 lb Hub Drum Need Additional Grease Before Installation
  • The # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K hub would arrive with the grease seal, the races and the inner and outer bearings installed. The bearings are already packed with grease, so the hub is ready to install. I'd recommend using some additional all-purpose marine wheel bearing grease like # L11465, and smearing a good coating on the spindles as some extra added insurance. I've linked to a product description video featuring this hub/drum. All this being said, since this is for a boat trailer I'd instead...

  • Do Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2,000 lb Axles Fit Same Wheel Sizes
  • You are correct that these two hub and drums are exactly the same but one has a standard grease cap and the other has an E-Z Lube grease cap for E-Z Lube spindles, so both will fit 12" to 15" wheels. The correct one for you will simply depend on if you have an E-Z Lube axle or not: - Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2,000 lb E-Z Lube Axles # 8-257-5UC3-EZ - Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2,000 lb Axles # 8-257-5UC3

  • Can You Install an EZ Lube Hub and Drum on a Non EZ Lube Axle
  • Even though you do not have EZ lube axles you will be able to add EZ lube hubs and drums, however, you will not have the EZ lube feature on his axles by installing the EZ lube hub and drums. For you to be able to easily pack grease into your hubs and drums without an EZ lube axle, you will need Bearing Buddies. These replace the grease cap in the axle hub and will protect your bearings by keeping out water and ensuring enough grease is in the hub. I attached a diagram showing where the...

  • Lug Nuts Shearing off Hub and Drum of 7,000 lb Dexter Axle
  • I can only make a guess and can't know for certain, but generally speaking, the two main reasons that lug nuts shear off is that they are overtightened - though you can rule that out if you are sure they were torqued to the manufacturer's specs - or that your wheels have elongated, wider holes. This would make the wheel have excessive movement on the lug nut and cause enough vibration for it to shear off. If you need to replace the hub and drum on your 7,000 lb Dexter axle you can use...

  • Will Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-K Work On EZ Loader Trailer
  • The bolt pattern of the # AKHD-545-35-K is a 5 on 4-1/2, but you will need to know what size your spindle is on your trailer to make sure the drums will work. The easiest way to see what you need is to pull the hub and drum and get the numbers off of the bearings. It will be stamped or etched on the side of the bearing as shown in the attached photo. If you cannot find the numbers you will need to use a digital caliper like part # PTW80157 and measure the spindle where the bearings ride...

  • New Hydraulic Brakes, Actuator & Measuring for Replacement 10 Inch Hub and Drum on Boat Trailer
  • While we can get you the correct hydraulic brakes as well as an actuator, the measurements you gave for your bearings only coincide with one idler hub. The issue with bearings is that the measurements do need to be very exact, so I strongly recommend using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 and measuring your spindle where the bearings ride to get the exact measurement. Since you mentioned a 10 inch brake drum, and you got the (fantastic looking) Aluminum Viking Series Valhalla Trailer...

  • Does it Matter if You Have Brakes or Idler Hubs When Measuring Hub Face on Trailer Axle
  • The hub face measurement on an axle would be the same if you have idler hubs or hubs/drums. The Dexter Trailer Axle part # 35545I-EZ-89 for example which has idler hubs uses the same axle as the Dexter Trailer Axle part # 35545E-ST-89 which has hubs/drums and they both have an 89" hub face measurement. I have attached for you below steps for picking out the correct axle replacement as well. In order to choose the correct replacement axle for a trailer you'll first want to start with the...

  • Switching from Oil Bath Drum Brakes to Disc Brakes
  • When it comes to swapping your drum brakes for disc brakes, we offer standard grease filled hub/rotors with the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. At this time we do not offer oil bath style hub/rotors with the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. I recommend using the grease filled over the oil bath anyway. Oil bath hubs must be closely watched if they are submerged in water because oil will breakdown much faster than grease. The other problem is that when a seal goes out in a grease hub you can make it home...

  • I can tell you how to determine the correct hub and drum for your trailer, though we don't have any way of knowing specifically what you need for a 1995 Trailswest horse trailer. To find the correct hubs for your trailer, you need to know the weight rating of your axle, and also what bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly...
