Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors Needed for a 1965 Shasta Trailer


I have a 1965 Shasta Trailer that is missing a grease cap. I can see that it is threaded. Would the Bearing Buddies work and what size would I need. Thanks so much in advance for your help.


Expert Reply:

The Bearing Buddies, # BB2047, are pressed into the hub for a tight fit. To determine the correct part for your trailer hub you will need to measure the diameter of the grease cap mating surface in the hub and match that as closely as possible to the measurements provided on the bearing buddy product pages, see link.

If your grease caps are threaded, the Bearing Buddies, # BB1980T-SS, # BB2441T-SS or # BB2080T-SS, may be the correct size for your hubs, measuring to determine the correct part is required. The most common size is the # BB1980T-SS.

Another possibility is that your hubs are oil bath hubs, if this is the case an oil cap will be needed, see link.

When measuring, a dial caliper is needed to get an accurate measurement. If none of the bearing protectors we carry match your trailer hubs, you will most likely need to contact Shasta for an OEM replacement part.
