Spindle grease seals for Shorelandr boat trailer SLR30BL



I'm having trouble with a rear seal leaking. These trailers come with a Speedi sleeve and the spindles are 1/38 - 1/16 with disc brakes. The manual calls for a seal that is 1.750 id - 2.565 od and I can't seem to find them (especially the 1.750 id part) .

I've been using seals from fleet that are "1-23/32" id, and from Northern which are marked "1-22/32" id but those seem too small with that sleeve and the sleeve just spins.

I am running bearing buddies and I know not to pump them too full.

1. Should I grease the area between the spindle and the sleeve and just let it turn?

2. Should I use some loc tite or something to keep that sleeve from turning?

3. Do I have the right seal or where do I find the right one?

4. Do I even need that sleeve if the spindles look good?

The speedi sleeve should not be turning. If it is, then the leak is likely coming from between the sleeve and the stub. Normally the speedi sleeve is installed with an installing tool and tapped in place with a hammer and is a "light" press fit. They are replaceable so you dont have to replace the whole stub if the surface gets worn. I'd replace that for sure before trying more seals. Are the seals not available through Shorelander?

A quick search shows a seal with the sizes you list is available in an SKF seal part #17413 and a speedi sleeve #99174

Napa carries them both.

Thanks for the info. I will give Napa a try. For some reason those sleeves have been loose and able to turn ever since the trailer was new in 2009. I think I remember using one on an old trailer years ago and I had to press it on. So, I'll give that a try. Your response is much appreciated.

Follow up on earlier post...Couldn't get anyone to talk to me at Shorelandr about the speedi seal situation. Went to Napa, got the .1750 speedi's recommended by Shorelandr manual. The new ones are bigger than the ones that are on there already. Decided to take off the speedi on the one side that seems to be turning and just go with "seal on spindle" like all my other trailers. Spindles are in great shape and I repack every fall so I guess I'll just run with that.
