I won't need new bearings, but I have to machine the brake drums so I might as well pop the bearings out and re-grease them and i will get numbers for future reference, Having a spare set in the tool box is not a bad idea.

I heard back from the factory, for the Escape 19'
Small inner bearing pt# L44649
Large outer bearing pt# L68149
Seal pt# 171255TB

These are the same as for the axle on the Escape 17, interesting except reversed from Glenn's numbers. Mine came from Reace, Glenn can you verify your numbers? I guess it doesn't make any difference, they will only go on one way. correct?

My numbers came from Tammy.
I will email for clarification. One issue is different numbers for different manufacturers.

Now, what is a "race" and where does it fit in the axles, are you referring to the seals or dust covers? Does anyone have a schematic?

Dexter 2K / 2.2K Axle Hub Parts example !
The race is pressed or driven into the hub. The bearing is slid on to the spindle and seats into the race. The spindle is on the left side of the picture.

OK, I understand now. Can anyone recommend a bearing/seal or race installation kit that one can install with use of a hammer? Will this work ? Bearing Race & Seal Driver Set Lisle #12600
What about this also Wheel, Bearing, packer

I think I'm going to order 4 sets of bearings, 4 inner grease seals, the driver set and the wheel bearing packer from Chuck here on the forum. What about grease?

I wonder if you are getting over paranoid.

Quite frankly, the thing that's going to kill bearings is dirt. If you repack them properly every couple of years with good grease and make sure the seal is good, to keep out dirt, then they should last for a long time.

I had a 72 Boler for 22 years and ran it on the same bearings with no problem ........ and I used to load it to the hilt when I went out camping.
