Very good spindle for my kayak trailer. I needed something that would be easy to grease and these fit the bill perfectly- better than bearing buddies since the grease gets to the inner bearing.

  • How to Determine Replacement Hubs for a Trailer Based on Spindle Dimensions
    If you cannot find the bearing number, we can still recommend the correct hub if you supply us with some precise measurements of the bearing and seal surface of your spindle. Check out the picture I attached that shows what portion of the spindle needs to be measured. The other dimensions on the picture I attached would also be helpful to know to determine what bearings and seals you have.

  • Availability of Trailer Spindle With Bearing Surfaces that Measure 1-1/16 inch Diameter
    The BTR Spindle part # TRU44FR has bearing surface diameters that are both 1-1/16 inch in diameter. Where the grease seal would ride would measure 1.50 inches as well.

  • Spindle Recommendation for Hub that Uses Inner and Outer Bearing L44649
    Based on your hub having two of the L44649 bearings that would mean you need a BTR spindle like the part # TRU44FR. To replace a spindle, the old one would need to be cut off, and the new one welded into place. This is NOT a job for the do-it-yourselfer. The new spindle must be absolutely square with the axle in order to prevent premature tire wear and wheel tracking problems. I would recommend finding a welder who is experienced with trailer axles. Your local RV dealer or repair facility...

  • Availability of Straight Spindle with 2,000 lb Capacity
    The BTR style of spindle like the part # TRU44FR has bearing surfaces that are both 1.06 inch in diameter. That's probably the closest we have to a straight spindle in the capacity of 2,200 lbs like you want. 1.00 inch for the threaded portion 1.06 for the inner bearing surface 1.06 for the outer bearing surface 1.50 for the seal inner diameter surface

  • Is there Any Way to Determine the Trailer Bearing Measurements without Pulling the Hub
    The short answer is that you cannot. You will need to pull the hub and get the numbers stamped into the bearings to find the correct replacements. It is possible that if you know the spindle part number and/or dimensions that you will be able to determine the seals that way. I also may be able to figure it out if I had the bolt pattern of the wheel, see link, and the axle capacity. The best way is to pull the hub. I have included a link to a video that might help. If you are going to replace...

  • Solution for Finding Hub to Fit Shorter Spindle with Outer Diameter of 1.06 inches
    Sounds like you have BTR spindle but have the much shorter version which we don't have hubs for. Would time for a new spindle realistically like the part # TRU44FR. To replace a spindle, the old one would need to be cut off, and the new one welded into place. This is NOT a job for the do-it-yourselfer.

  • Availability of Bearings, Seals, and Cap For 2002 Trailstar Trailer
    The best way to determine the correct parts for your 2002 Trailstar trailer is to disassemble a hub on one side of the trailer and get the bearing part numbers that are stamped on the bearings. There is an inner and outer bearing. With these part numbers I will be able to determine the bearings, seals, and other parts you might need for your trailer. I looked up the Trailstar trailers and it looks like they use the EZ Lube hubs. The EZ Lube system will have a zerk fitting on the end of...

  • Which Grease Seal for Trailstar Boat Trailer
    I don't have reference that lists which grease seal the hub on your trailer uses. In order to recommend the correct grease seal, I'll need some information from you. I'll need the inner bearing reference number and the diameter of the spindle where the grease seal rides. When you measure the spindle diameter, you'll need to use a highly accurate measuring tool like a digital caliper. Once I have that information, I'd be happy to recommend a grease seal for you.

  • How Do Trailer Spindles Typically Install on Trailer Axle
    Removing a damaged spindle is the easy part - it can be cut off with a torch or saw. But welding on a new one is another matter and requires the new spindle be welded exactly straight. It is actually easier to replace the entire axle with a new one that has good spindles on both ends. This may even be less costly than having a new spindle welded on by a qualified welder. It will also ensure that both spindles will have the same working lifespan, which would not be the case if only one is...

  • Steel Type for Trailer Axle Spindle TRU44FR
    I checked with Trudyde, and I was able to find out that the bar stock material used to make the spindle is hot rolled SAE 1045 steel, which allows the spindle to harden to an extent. The spindle needs to retain a slight amount of flex to retain its durability when a trailer goes over a bump or through a hole in the road.

  • Choosing Proper Set Angle for Replacement Dexter Torsion Axle.
    To allow for full articulation so you don't have to worry about the tires bottoming out int he wheel wells, I'd recommend going with a 15° down torsion axle. If the original axle was a 0°, this would raise the trailer up a bit. A 'down' axle places the spindle centerline below the frame member, while a 0° would place it even with the frame.

  • Recommendation for Failing EZ Lube Spindle and Vortex Hub
    We do not carry the Vortex hubs made by Tie Down Engineering. Unfortunately because of this, I don't really know how to assist with troubleshooting the hubs themselves as they are designed to seal out moisture and debris, yet are obviously failing. The threaded cab should have an o-ring to prevent moisture entry and the seal should prevent it on the other side. The zerk fitting on your EZ lub spindles is a part of the spindle so to replace that would require changing the entire spindle....

  • 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, #...

  • What Size Axle Does a #84 Spindle Fit
    A true 1 inch spindle is a BT8 spindle, like # TRU94FR. The next closest one would be the BTR spindle which is commonly referred to as a 1-1/16 inch spindle, like # TRU44FR and is more common than the BT8. 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. Common sizes for these are 2-3/8 inch round axle, 3 inch round axle, and 2 inch square axle. I have linked a helpful page that shows the different...

  • Parts for a Custom 2K Axle with 58 Inch Spring Centers and 62-1/2 Inch Hub Face Measurements
    The hub face to hub face measurement is all going to depend on how you put it all together but I am sure you could get it to that measurement with the parts you mentioned. We do have 2,000 pound axles ready to go, see link, but they have a 72 inch hub face measurement which is the standard for that particular capacity. The hub face measurement will depend on the length of the axle tube you will be using. You should know that welding on a brake mounting flange such as # 4-34 requires a...

  • Replacing Trailer Axle Spindle From Older Short Spindle To BTR E-Z Lube Spindle
    It sounds like you have an older style trailer axle with the short spindles. You will need a new Spindle # TRU44FR to mount on your axle as the short hubs are now obsolete. This will allow you to use the what is now standard length spindle dimensions. The CE Smith Trailer Idler Hub Assembly w/ Case # CE13315 is designed to fit the newer BTR spindles that are more commonly found on trailers.

  • Replacement Bearings for a Spindle that Measures 1.055 Inches
    A lot depends on where you are taking that measurement. If you look at the spindle main page I have linked for you, you will see the important spindle measurements I would need to determine what, if any, bearings we carry will fit. If you have access to the bearings still the best way to determine replacement parts is to get the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the metal of the bearings. If your 1.055 measurement is the C measurement from the spindle main page and the spindle...

  • Replacement Trailer Idler Hub With Inner Bearing 1.25" and Outer Bearing 0.75" Inner Diameters
    The only hub we carry that will fit your spindle size is the Agricultural Hub # AH15450ECOMP, as most have changed over to the more common BT8 # TRU59FR and BTR # TRU44FR. The agricultural hub is only rated for speeds up to 20mph and uses a 4 on 5" bolt pattern. You can have your spindles replaced to one of the more common sizes but this is best done at a trailer manufacturer so they can true up the ends of the spindle to ensure it is welded on straight. Otherwise if you can give me dimesnions...

  • How to Determine The Correct Replacement Trailer Hubs by Bearing Numbers or Spindle Size
    The best way to determine which replacement hubs you need for your trailer would be to remove one of the hubs and retrieve the bearings. Find the numbers stamped into the bearings and with those we will be able to get you the correct hubs. If you are unable to retrieve the bearing numbers, you can take measurements of the spindle. I have included a link to our spindle main page. At the top of the page is a diagram showing all of the measurements we would need to find the correct hubs...

  • Difference Between BTR and BT8 Spindles
    The difference between a BTR # TRU44FR and BT8 spindle # TRU94FR is that the BTR spindle uses a 1.063" diameter # L44649 bearing and the BT8 spindle uses a 0.99" diameter # L44643 bearing.
