Review of Dexter Trailer Hubs and Drums 8-174-5UC3


Today were going to review part number 8-174-5UC3. This is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for a 5-spoke utility application. This Hub and Drum Assembly will be used on Dexter 6000-lb and 7000-lb axles or on spindles requiring a 2-1/8-inch or 2-1/4 inch inside diameter grease seal. The capacity on this assembly is 3500 lbs each which means when used with another one on the other side of the axle would give you your maximum of 7000 lbs. The drum size is a 12-inch diameter by 2-inch wide. Included with this assembly are the bearing for the inner, part number 25580, for the outer bearing would be 15123, the seal included would be part number 10-1 which is the 2-1/8 inch inside diameter seal and the grease cap that goes on the end of the hub.

Now the bearing races will be also included but they will already be preinstalled into the hub. The outer race would be located right here. The inner race is located right there. All of our Hub and Drum Assemblies will come with the bearing races preinstalled, pressed in. Now this Hub and Drum Assembly is different from most because it is designed with a 5-spoke utility bolt pattern.

As you can see, its a very large bolt pattern. Basically, it attaches by using a wheel that will have actually no center, it will just have the rim on it and it sets down on here and that rim will sit right on this lip right here. And then use the included clamps and nuts and basically what you would do is the clamp is stamped rim on one side wheel on the other so that means you would put this towards the rim side and that to the wheel side and then you put your nut down and that would clamp the wheel thats sitting on there down to the Hub and Drum Assembly. I do want to give you measurement on that. Thats a 12-inch diameter by 2-inch wide drum.

So the 12-inch would be the inside of the drum which is 12 inches. The width would be 2 inches. And that should do it for the review on part number 8-174-5UC3.
