Hub Needed That is Compatible with L44649 Inner and Outer Bearings and a Grease Seal with 1.25 ID


Hello, Im building a small trailer and realize I purchased the wrong hubs not from you. I already have an axel Id like to use, along with some wheels and lug adaptors. Is there any way to get a set of hubs that would fit an axel with a 1 1/16 inner AND outer bearing with a 1.25 inch seal? I was looking at the AKIHUB-655-35K and it suites all my needs except for the Inner Bearing diameter appears too large 1.378. Can this work with a similar bearing, just with a smaller Inner Diameter? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Based off of the information that you gave me I do have some options for you but the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-655-35-K that you referenced not only has an Inner Bearing with the incorrect inner diameter, but the Grease Seal does as well and there are no options to replace it with one that has a 2.565" outer diameter and a 1.25" inner diameter.

I have linked our selection of idler hubs for you to filter through that use the 1.063" Inner and Outer Bearing # L44649. You will simply need to replace the included Grease Seal with part # 34823 which has an inner diameter of 1.249".

By clicking on the appropriate filters you can choose a hub that has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern or a 4 on 4" bolt pattern as well as what size wheels it will fit. For example; the Dexter Axle Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-258-5UC1-EZ is an idler hub with a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern and is compatible with 13" - 15" diameter wheels.

If you haven't already purchased tires and wheels for your trailer the Kenda Karrier # AM31985 fits perfectly with this hub and is very popular with our customers.
