Replacement Trailer Idler Hub That Uses L68149 Inner and Outer Bearings and 5-on-4-1/2 Bolt Pattern


I am looking for a hard to find trailer hub. UFP 1-3/8inch x 1-3/8inch bearing, 5 on 4.5inch Stud Hub #33667. Both bearings are the same size. The bearings are L68149 with Race L68110. Do you have it or can you get it?


Expert Reply:

We do offer a range of replacement trailer hub assemblies that use the L68149 bearing as their inner bearing and that have the 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. All can be seen on the link at right.
However, none of these 16 hubs uses that same bearing as its outer bearing - all use an L44649 outer bearing.

You may find it easier to replace the entire axle and hubs with new and readily available items.

We do offer axles alone, axles with complete hub/bearings kits and axle-less suspension systems that simply bolt on to your trailer frame; these come from Timbren.

For example, we offer Dexter's kit # 35545I-EZ-89 which is a 3500-lb 89-inch axle with idler hubs that have a 5-on-4-1/2 bolt pattern. The kit includes hubs, seals, bearings, lug nuts and grease caps - even bearing grease. You'll want to be sure to choose an axle with the same spring center spacing as yours.

If you prefer you can dispense with the axle entirely an install a Timbren axle-less system like their # ASR1200S04 which is rated for 1200-lbs.
