Review of etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums AKHD-655-35-EZ-K


Today we're going to take a look at the 10 inch trailer hub and drum assembly for 3500 pound easy lube axles. This has the 6 on 5 and 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now this hub and drum assembly does provide the surface area for your brake shoes to grip when drum brake's activated. It is compatible with both electric and hydraulic drum brakes. This trailer hub assembly does fit easy lube trailer axles and easy lube axles are the ones that have the grease Zerk fitting on the end of the spindle. That will allow you to grease the bearings without having to remove this complete hub and drum assembly to access the bearings.

This will come with this easy lube compatible grease cap, that's installed just like that once it's tapped in. This will make lubricating your bearings very fast and easy. All you have to do is pop out your rubber plug, that will give you access to that Zerk fitting on the end of the spindle. Put your grease gun in there, pump it with grease. Easy to do, there's no need to totally disassemble the hub and drum to access the bearings to grease them. Now this hub and drum assembly does include everything shown here on the table, and it even includes the bearing racers which are pre-installed in the hub.

There's your outer bearing race and if we spin it around here's your inner bearing race. Also includes the inner bearing, the outer bearing, the grease seal, the easy lube grease cap with that rubber plug and 6 of the 1/2 inch lug nuts. Now this hub and drum is a sturdy iron construction, has a nice sink enriched paint finish over the whole drum and the bolts are zinc finished. They all help resist corrosion. This is certified by USSAE 00:01:32 standards and CSA which are the Canadian standards. Application for this 00:01:36 is 3500 pound easy lube trailer axles with the number 84 spindles.

This is compatible with axles for most manufacturers including Dexter, Liprid 00:01:46 and Alko. This is designed to work with a 10 inch brake assembly, the diameter being 10 inches right here. The bolt pattern, again, is a 6 on 5 and 1/2 inch bolt pattern. The weight capacity is 1750 pounds per hub. On these parts right here, we'll start with the inner bearing which is the larger of the 2. That's part number L68149, has an inner diameter of 1.378.

If we spin this around to gain access to the inner bearing race, you can see it fits right in there. To hold it into place, you have your grease seal. Overall diameter is 2.565, that will go right there and you tap it into place the whole of that 00:02:25 there. Now the smaller bearing which is the outer bearing. It is a part number L44649, the inner diameter is 1.063. That would right into the outer bearing race and then you have your zinc plated easy lube grease cap with the rubber plug. Has a flange diameter of 1.99 inches, that would tap on just like that. As I mentioned that plug, which will be installed in there, you just pop it off to gain access to that Zerk fitting. Now for this video, I'm just showing you where the parts are located, how they assemble into your hub and drum. When you do install this for the first time, you do want to make sure both the bearings are greased correctly so when you do install it, you're ready to go. Then all you can do from then on is just use the grease gun on the Zerk fitting to keep grease in your bearings. Also it does include the 6 1/2 inch by 20 size lug nuts. Those are used to hold your wheel and tire assembly to the hub and drum. Once you put your wheel up on these studs, just go ahead and put your lug nuts on there. Go ahead and torque them down to the correct specs for your application. That should do it for the review of the 10 inch trailer hub and drum assembly for 3500 pound easy lube axles with the 6 on 5 1/2 inch bolt pattern.
