Trailer bearing hub kit

8 posts in this topic

I am going to purchase a new bearing hub kit for my trailer.  First, I need to figure out the spindle diameter size.  The current one on the trailer looks to be 1 1/16 with both bearings being the same size as my trailer is only rated for  max 1,250 lbs.   

However, since my boat trailer is only rated for 1,250 lbs, can 1 1/16 be correct for the bearing size instead of 1 inch?  From what I have been looking at the stores 1 inch is for 1,250 lbs and 1 1/16 is for 1, 350 max lbs. 

If  I bought the  bearing hub kit for 1 inch, would it fit if the trailer is for 1 1/16?

You need to measure and get the right size. If it doesn't fit snug on the spindle you will damage the spindle or have other problems.

check the number on the bearing or measure the shaft.

 

The only way I'd even consider doing it...match the bearing # or cross-ref it. Don't even try to go by trailer weight; means nothing. Bearing must be exact size or you needn't worry about getting very far with it.

I just changed bearings in both my boat and snowmobile trailer. I took a bearing of each trailer and brought it to the auto parts store. they can measure it with a caliper!

the one thing I got educated on is most these bearing kits are a generic version. if you have an older trailer like mine you may need to get a different size grease seal on the back side. in both my older trailers my spindles had a rise in the shaft and I needed to go to a larger inside diameter seal then what came with the kit.

I have a trailer that uses 1 1/16" and 1" will not work.  It looks like it would fit, but nope.  I get the hub/bearing kit at Northern Tool and it comes with a couple of sizes for the rear seal in the kit. It's been working for me. My trailer is old like smurfy was talking about and my rear seal is larger too.

Another suggestion......get a good USA made bearing like a Timken, etc. Those Chinese ones are REALLY junk. Not worth wasting your time installing. Let's face it, nothing ruins your day faster than a seized bearing!

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
