Replacing roller on boat trailer

5 posts in this topic

I think it's a '93 Spartan but I need to replace the middle roller that keeps the boat straight.

It looks like it has a shaft going through the roller and some caps on the end.

Should I just replace the roller or replace everything?

Any trick to it?

Thanks!

Just replaced mine. Go under your boat and measure the length of the roller. Then measure the best you can the shaft size. Go to Fleet Farm and pick one up.

You will need to get the boat off the trailer more than likely. Go to the lake....go fishing. When you return, get a pair of pliers and pull on the keeper on one side the roller shaft. The shaft will pull out and then remove the roller. Assembly is the exact opposite.

Good luck.

To make life easier for yourself, go to Cabela's and buy a new self centering roller. They run about $20.00. The design is such that your boat automatically center's itself everytime. I put one on my trailer and I love it! 1DIRTBALL

So I replaced the front small roller and put on the self-centering roller but I am still having a hard time getting the boat off the trailer when launching. It's hard to do by myself.

Can you guys think of anything else for me to do?

Maybe lower those 2 new rollers to try and relieve a bit of pressure?

I can post pics if it would help everyone.

Thanks!
