Can Hub AKIHUB-655-6-K be Used in Place of Hub 8-213-5UC1


Recently I had asked if the 8-213-5UC1 would fit my axle spindle looks like a #42 to me. It currently uses LM67048 outer and 25580 inner with a 2.25 x 3.376 grease seal. You had indicated it would work. My question now is would the AKIHUB-655-6-K hub fit this as well. The only differences I can see is the 15123 outer bearing and the grease ring size which seems closer to mine. The 15123 and LM67048 have the same inner diameter so I am wondering if I could use that setup instead of 8-213-5UC1. Thanks

You can use hub # AKIHUB-655-6-K provided that the larger seal is a proper fit for your spindle. The smaller one included with hub # 8-213-5UC1 would provide a tighter fit but if your current seal inner diameter is 2-1/4 inches then hub # AKIHUB-655-6-K will be fine. If it is smaller then the larger seal would cause grease to leak out.
