  • Compatibility of TRU67FR Spindle and Dexter 42655UC1 Idler Hub
  • We carry the # AS6000F spindle as part # TRU67FR. The spindle and the # 42655UC1 hub you mentioned aren't compatible. If you wanted to use the # TRU67FR (AS6000F) spindle, you'd need to use the compatible hub which is part # AH60880FCOMP. This is an agricultural hub which isn't meant for higher speed road use, and has an 8 on 8 bolt pattern which is pretty much relegated to farm equipment. If you need a spindle that's compatible with the # 42655UC1 hub, which has a more commonly...

  • Recommended Replacement Disc Brakes For A 2008 Trail-Rite With UFP DB-42 Brakes
  • From the pictures you provided, you have a UFP DB-42 disc brake set up on your 2008 Trail-Rite. This isn't something we carry, but it looks like these systems use the # L68149 inner bearing and the # L44649 bearing, so you do have a common spindle for a 3,500 pound axle. With that said, we do have the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR35DS that looks like it would be a perfect replacement. This is rated for 3,500 pound axles and will use these same bearings, though not included so you will...

If you've got a different axle and/or different bearings, let me know and we can find the appropriate replacement spindles for you.

  • Recommended Spindle, Idler Hub, Wheels and Tires For Homemade Cart Trailer Off Road Use Only
  • We have the #42 Spindle # TRU57FR that you can weld to your trailer. It is a 2-1/4" round stub as we do not have any square stub spindles that are rated for over 2,500lbs per spindle. With these spindles you can use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-6-K since you do not need a braking hub. The hub is 6 on 5-1/2" as the 5 lug wheels are not strong enough for the 10,000lb capacity that you are needing. The Taskmaster ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire with 15" White Mod Wheel...

For a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, use # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K.

  • How To Determine If ST205/75R15 Tires Can Replace ST205/75R14 Tires On 1995 Travel Trailer
  • It is possible that the ST205/75R15 will be able to replace the 205/75R14 tires currently on your 1995 travel trailer but you will need to take a few measurements to determine this. The ST205/75R15 like the Contender ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" Vesper Silver Mod Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - LR D # MX84FR measures in at 7.99" wide and 27.13" tall where your ST205/75R14 tires measure in at 8.13" wide and 26.3" tall.

  • Will the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Flange Work On Any Axle Between 5,200 and 7,000 Lbs
  • The axle tube dimensions should be the same from anything between 5,200 - 7,000 lbs. I know for sure the outer diameter will be 3" as this is a standard but it would not hurt to measure the inner diameter when fittings the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Flange part # TRU37FR which has a stub diameter of 2-1/4". It's possible different manufactures use different axle beam thicknesses for an axle within the range above but it should be fairly standard.

  • Recommended Replacement Spindle Or Axle For Older Spindle That Uses Short Hubs W/ L44643 Bearings
  • I have a few different options for you, but the older short hubs that your trailers spindles use are not made any longer so I do not have a hub only option for you. Instead you will either need to replace the spindle with a newer one such as the # TRU97FR which works with idler hubs # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K which have the 4 on 4" bolt pattern you are needing, or replace the entire axle.

The best option is going to be replacing the axle with one that uses standard bearings to make finding replacement parts now and in the future easier.

  • How to Determine if Trailer has 84 Spindle to Pick Out Replacement
  • In order to verify the spindle dimensions so that you can pick out the correct hub/drum you have to get exact dimensions. For that you need to use a digital caliper like part # PTW80157. For how old your trailer is this is especially important as the standard spindles sizes have changed since 1969. An 84 spindle would measure 1.06 where the outer bearing rides, 1.38 where the inner bearing rides, and 1.73 where the seal rides. For a hub with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern that would...

Both of these are typically used with 2,000 lb axles. A #84 spindle, like # TRU24FR or # TRU47FR is bigger and is used for 3,500 lb axles.

  • Replacement Axle Recommendation for Yachtclub Snowmobile Trailer Rated for 1,880 Pounds
  • For your snowmobile trailer I recommend going with a Timbren Axle-Less system such as # ASR2000S01. I have included a link to all the options rated for 2,000 pounds. The benefit is that you won't have an axle beam to rust and you still get the rubber, torsion-style suspension. To determine if the hubs you have now will fit I just need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings.

  • You will need to measure the diameter of the spindles where the seal and bearings ride. Check out the picture I attached that shows where this is.

  • How to Identify Compatible Hubs for Vintage Utility Trailer
  • Thank you for the photo of your vintage utility trailer's spindle. The simplest and surest way to identify a compatible trailer hub is to identify the inner and outer bearings and the grease seal it uses. Matching up those components along with the axle weight rating and the hub bolt pattern is pretty much it. However, in your case I can tell you up front that we have only one hub that uses a bearing whose inner diameter is as small as 0.75-inches, hub # AH15450ECOMP. It uses outer...

  • Recommended Trailer Idler Hub for a Trailer with 84 Spindles
  • The threaded portion of the spindle isn't that important when picking out a replacement hub. That portion of the spindle is only for the castle nut, and since you have that already you would be fine. As long as the rest of the dimensions of your spindle match the # TRU64FR then the hub part # 84545BX would fit.

You did not mention why you need to replace the hub, but assuming there is no excessive damage then your best bet is going to be replacing the bearings with # LM11949, and # L44649, and the races with # L44610 and # LM11910 to refurbish the hub.

  • Should a Spindle That is Chipping be Replaced
  • Anytime that a spindle is starting to take damage you will want to replace it as that will affect the performance of your bearings and seal. In this case since that chipping is right where the seal sits (as you mentioned) that will eat at the rubber seal which will likely cause it to fail. A failed seal will leak grease and cause further damage to your spindle/hub area. From the picture you sent in it looks like you have a round BT8 spindle. For replacements we have parts # TRU94FR,...

  • Will Spindle # TRU37FR for Trailer Allow Use of Standard Hubs and Brake Assemblies
  • Mobile home axle components are considered one time use and are mainly all non-standard parts which means that if you attempt to replace anything on them you find that nothing fits or matches. If you went with a new spindle like the part # TRU37FR you'd be able to install standard spindles and brake assemblies no-problem but they wouldn't bolt up to what you have now. The hub/drum part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K would match this spindle and then for brake assemblies # 23-458-459.

  • Could Zerk Fitting be Added to Trailer Spindle to Make it an EZ Lube Spindle
  • EZ lube spindles are more than just a zerk fitting attached to the end of the spindle. There would need to be a hole in the spindle between where the bearings ride for the grease would then fill the hub by. To be perfectly honest using EZ lube spindles or Bearing Buddies typically causes people to over fill their hubs and blow out the grease seal so you're better off packing the hubs by hand. I attached a link to a bearing packing video for you to check out as well.

  • 84 Spindle with Brake Mounting Flange Recommendation
  • Adding brake mounting flanges to a spindle is something that only a qualified welder with experience welding them on should do. A much easier solution would be to go with a spindle that has a flange mounted to it already like the part # TRU74FR that would fit the same hubs as the # TRU47FR that you referenced. Also, the # TRU47FR is a square spindle and we only offer flanges for round spindles.

  • How to Use an 18 Inch Diameter Wheel on a Trailer

Trailer tires are going to experience much more flex than a passenger tire so the sidewalls need to be much stronger. I can't...
