Replacement Hubs Based on Tapered Spindle Measurements

Question:

I need two hubs for replacement on my trailer. I have the tapered spindle measurements but not sure what hubs to get. I have a picture of the hub and want to make sure I get the correct ones.

If you give me the tapered spindle measurements like in the attached photo, I can help you get the replacement hubs you need. I need the measurements at letter B where the seal sits, letter C where the inner bearing rides, and letter D where the outer bearing rides.

The only other thing I will need is bolt pattern and whether you want idler hubs, drum brakes, or disc rotors. I've attached an article to assist with bolt pattern to match your wheels.

Question:

I was able to get some numbers off the old bearings. I'm pretty sure I found the IDLER hub that I need on etrailers but just want to confirm. The outer bearing is LM67048. The inner bearing is 25580 and the grease seal is 203037X. The item number is: 8-213-5UC1. If this is correct, I'll get both ordered this week. Thanks!!

Based on your bearings, the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 # 8-213-5UC1 will fit your spindles. The seal I was not able to cross-reference, so I recommend making sure the inner diameter of your seal or the outer diameter of your spindle is 2.125 inches. This is the most common size for those bearings.

You will also want to get the grease # L11390 to pack your bearings prior to installing the new hubs.
