Availability of Replacement Wheel Bearing Races Compatible w/ LM67048 Wheel Bearings


I need new hubs for a small boat trailer. I was repacking the bearings after several years of sitting, and the races were badly pitted. The inner and outer bearings are both LM67048 size and the spindle measures a straight 1.25 inches. The bolt pattern for the wheels is 5 on 4.5. The wheels are 8 inches. Im having difficulty finding anything for this spindle size. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks very much!

If the races are the only problem with the hubs, you can use a brass punch to pound out the races and install new ones. The proper race would be # LM67010.

None of the hubs we offer would use the LM67048 as the inner and outer bearing. The LM67048 is usually used as an outer bearing on a 5200, 6000 or 7000 lb capacity axle. The trailer you have could be very old, or sometimes folks will rebuild trailers using automotive axles. A hub that uses the bearing set-up you describe isn't common for trailer use.
