Can Dexter 8-222 Hub be Replaced with 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Hub on Tandem 4 Ton Trailer


Is it possible to replace the 8-222 hubs to a 6x5.5 hub on a Hudson tandem 4 ton trailer? What would I need to check to get the right parts?


Expert Reply:

I did some research on your Dexter 8-222 Hub and was able to find the inner and outer bearing numbers as well as the grease seal used. It looks like this particular hub was designed for mobile homes and these, for the most part, have more unique bearings and bolt patterns because they are technically manufactured for one time use only and not meant to be altered or replaced.

Because of this, there is unfortunately not a 6 on 5-1/2 inch hub available that will be compatible with your trailer's axle spindle.

If you simply need replacement bearings and seals, you will use # L68149 for the inner and # LM67048 for the outer. For the Grease Seal you will need # 10-40.
