While I certainly appreciate the effort with the photos, they are unfortunately not going to be relevant in terms of finding the correct wheel bearings, though I can tell you what you need to know in order to do this, sas you have an uncommon 2,750 lb axle.

The only way to find out the correct bearings for your AL-KO 2,750 lb axle is to take apart your hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them.

If you are unable to find them, you need to use Digital Caliper # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see exactly where you need to measure. I've also added a link to a help article on common bearing sizes, as well as a link to our available bearing kits.

What I can tell you for sure is that you'll need a good grease, and I recommend the LubriMatic Disc/Drum Brake and Wheel Bearing Grease # L11382; for a bearing packer I recommend the Bearing Packer # PTW1218 or # ALL647646.
