Spindles and Hubs To Update 1972 Sanger Boat Trailer To Currently Used Sized Bearings


I’m looking to purchase 4 wheel bearing kits for a 1972 Sanger Boat trailer: Inside Bearing: I.D: 1.33" O.D. 2.12" Depth .65" Seal : 2.35 O.D 1.72 I.D. Outer Bearing: I.D. .82" O.D 1.59" Depth .65" These are the old Timken numbers I have: Inner: 168149 PT2814 Outer: LM12749097 or LM1Z749097 , the numbers are really faded. Thank you

You are going to want to update the spindles on your 1972 Sanger boat trailer to the more common Spindle # TRU74FR. This will give you the current common bearing sizes for a typical 3,500lb axle as we do not carry either of your bearing sizes. You will need to pair the new spindles with new hubs. We have either an Idler Hub # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K or Hub/Drum # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K which comes complete with bearings. These both have the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. If your trailer has a different bolt pattern please let me know and I can help you find the best hubs for your application.
