Replacement Wheel Bearing Kit for 2001 Escort Single-Axle Boat Trailer


I need a wheel bearing kit for a 2001 Escort single axle boat trailer. The existing bearings dont have a part # on them.


Expert Reply:

Replacement bearings, races, seals, etc. can best be identified using the original part numbers, but in cases where those part numbers are not available it is possible to measure the trailer spindles with a precision caliper (to the nearest thousandth of an inch - like 1.378-inches) to find bearings and related parts that will work.

The linked diagram shows you where to measure the spindles for the correct grease seal (B), the inner bearing (C) and outer bearing (D). It also shows you the typical location of parts numbers. If you can find the part numbers you can search for those items directly using our search box feature.

If you need to choose bearings by taking the spindle dimensions you can use the link provided to see our main page for bearings. You can narrow the results by using the filters on the page. Choose your axle capacity (it should be noted on the axle itself) then choose the inner bearing's inner diameter that you measured at point C and the original bearing's outer diameter.

If we do not happen to have a complete bearing kit, like # BK2-100, with your particular required combination of parts we can still help you with the individual parts.
