The # BK2-100 Bearing Kit for #84 Spindle L44649/L68149 Bearings 10-19 Double Lip Seal will work. You have EZ Lube spindles which do not use a cotter pin. The spindle has a tube in it for the grease to be pumped in. Instead it uses a tang washer, which is the bendable tab on spacer you were referring to. Even the manufacturer said the # BK2-100 kit was designed for hubs that use the number 84 spindle.

This Kit comes with both a cotter pin for standard spindles and a tang washer for EZ-Lube spindles.

The lube caps you need # RG04-040 has a 1.99" outer diameter. I would encourage you to measure to make sure this is the size you need. I have attached the dimensions to this product.
