Are the TruRyde Spindle # TRU59FR and etrailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-2K Compatible

Question:

I need to purchase spindle, hub and bearings for a decorative windmill I am building. Would Spindle # TRU94FR be compatible with Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 8inch to 12inch Wheels - 5 on 4-1/2 - AKIHUB-545-2-2K ? Do you have another suggestion?

Helpful Expert Reply:

The TruRyde Spindle # TRU94FR and our Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-2K are not compatible, but you could use the TruRyde EZ Lube Spindle # TRU44FR instead as it has the correct spindle measurements.

For a hub that will work with the TruRyde Spindle # TRU94FR you can use part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K.

To determine if a hub is compatible with a specific spindle you will need to make sure that the inner diameters of the Inner Bearing, Outer Bearing, and Grease Seal of the hub matches up with the corresponding locations on the spindle. These locations are B, C, and D on the attached picture.

The etrailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-2-2K will not seat properly over the TruRyde Spindle # TRU59FR that you referenced.

The only available spindle that we carry at this time that is compatible with this hub is the TruRyde EZ Lube Spindle # TRU44FR that I mentioned before.

The hub has the same Inner and Outer Bearing number (part # L44649) which has a 1.063" inner diameter and a Grease Seal (part # 10-9) which has an inner diameter of 1.50". The TruRyde Spindle # TRU59FR that you referenced needs a hub with Inner and Outer Bearing locations that measure 0.99" and that uses a Grease Seal with an inner diameter of 1.24" but the TruRyde Spindle # TRU44FR that I referenced has those measurements exactly.

For a hub that is compatible with the TruRyde Spindle # TRU59FR you can use part # AKIHUB-545-2-1K
