Is Washer Needed When Installing BT8 Bearing Kit on Trailer Axle  


Your BT8 kit doesnt show a washer that goes between the bearing and the castle nut. Is it necessary to have the washer on because Im having trouble when I tighten the nut I done have remove to set my cotter pin on.


Helpful Expert Reply:

While the BT8 Bearing Kit part # BK1-100 does not come with a washer you would still need to use a washer like the part # 5-23. If you are having a hard time getting the nut to thread on with the washer installed you'd need make sure the inner bearing is all the way seated on the spindle and doesn't need to be installed further onto it. For more info on this I attached video that covers this as well.
