Hubs for 2,500 Pound Axle with Straight 1 Inch Spindle


the # TA88545-2 is fit the straight spindle with a diameter of 1?


Expert Reply:

The Timbren Idler Hub Assembly # TA88545-2 referenced in your question is designed for 2,500 pound axles and it uses the # L44649 inner and outer bearing. This particular bearing features an inner diameter of 1.063 inches, so I highly recommend verifying the measurements you took on your spindle with a digital caliper like # 301-17068.

If you do have 2,500 pound axles and the spindle is in fact 1 inch exactly, then the correct idler hub assembly will actually be the CE Smith # CE13210. This hub uses the # L44643 inner and outer bearing, which features an inner diameter of 1 inch to correspond to a straight 1 inch spindle. This particular hub also includes the needed bearings and seal and they are all pre-packed in marine-grade grease. It has a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 inches.

I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.
