Troubleshooting Oil Leaking from 12,000 lb Axle


My equipment trailer axle is leaking oil. The axle is 12,000 pounds. The axle is not a grease axle. How do you fix a oil leaking trailer axle?


Expert Reply:

For your 12,000 lb axles with Oil, you either have an oil cap or oil seal leaking. For the oil cap I recommend the Oil Cap Kit for 9K, 10K and 12K Axles # RG04-300. For the replacement oil seal, you most likely need # 10-56 which has an inner diameter of 3.125 and outer diameter of 4.500 inches. Finally, for your oil I recommend the Kodiak Synthetic Bearing Oil for Oil Bath Hubs - 8 oz Bottle # XLPROLUBE.
