Idler Hubs to Replace Hub/Drums on 5200 lb Capacity Axle  


I have a 1999 Escort Esco trailer with drum brakes. I would like to replace the drums with idler hubs as I only tow between the boat ramp and my house a few blocks. the trailer is a 20foot model WT20GFB-X. the axle is a 4650 lb. WT21. The bolt pattern is a 6 on 5-1/2. The inner bearing is listed as a 25580 1.75 and the outer bearing is listed as a LM67048 1.25. Please let me know what idler hubs to get. Thanks


Helpful Expert Reply:

From what you describe, you have a 5200 lb axle.

We do offer idler hubs compatible with a 25580 inner/LM67048 outer bearing which have a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern. If you have EZ lube spindles, use # 8-213-5UC1-EZ or # 8-213-5UC1 for standard spindles.

Both idler hubs assemblies include the inner and outer bearings and races, the 10-10 grease seal which has a 2.125 ID and 3.376 inch OD, the grease caps and lug nuts.

I've linked to an install video showing the installation process in case you need a refresher course.
