Bearing and seals

Hi all..

I ask this one to Reace, but maybe they are very busy right now. Anybody know what is the parts number of the bearing inner and outter ( i think there two sizes ) and also seal number for the 17' 2010. I can't remember but i think the axle is a Dexter 3500 lbs?

Thanks a lot

Pat

I think you got the inner and outer reversed. I have attached the Bearing Replacement & Cross Reference Chart from the Dexter web site.

Wheel bearings are single row taper roller bearings and have 2 parts: the cone (which is the part with the cage and rollers that is cone shaped that you stuff with grease) and the cup (which is the surface that the rollers ride on). If the rollers are shot, the cup probably is too and they should be replaced as a set. Some people just replace the cones because that part is easy and then are surprised when they don't last very long. It is a bit more work to also drive the old cups out of the hub and then press the new ones in, but is the proper way to do the job.

Re: Bearing and seals

In anticipation of the rain stopping at some point this month I went down to the local Lordco Parts and picked up a couple of grease seals so that if the rain DOES stop I can repack my bearings. The computer there spat out the # 408004-5 that Escape gave to Patjul, it also didn't like the numbers of 58846 and 158800 that Tammy had mentioned on post #13 on this thread http://escapeforum.org/index.php?topic=1065.0 It seems that each manufacture has their own numbers and no cross references to others.

The sales clerk finally looked up the axle ( Dexter 3500 lb Torflex 10x 2 1/4 hub) which listed the bearings of L68149 and L44649 which Escape gave to Patjul and the clerk gave me the seals based on that listing. Manufacture SKF #17146. ....... hopefully when I have everything apart the seals fit!!

Re: Bearing and seals

I did my bearings today and the seals that I bought were wrong. So a quick trip down to Lordco and got them replaced with the right ones; Raybestos #761-5604 ....... they fit!

Re: Bearing and seals

Thanks a lot for the reference chart....good help. Yes the seal number is not very helpful. The mesure of the seal itself is suposed to be Double lip seal 1.72" ID- 2.565" OD Is someone could confirm that

Re: Bearing and seals

Some bearings have a separate inner race, called a cone. So you have three parts, the cup (outer race), the cage, the rollers and retainer, and the cone, the inner race.
Sometimes the inner race and cage come as one assembly. If you have a separate cone, be sure to replace that also.

Re: Bearing and seals

I have just been reading the posts on bearings and seals, and it got me wondering. I have done around 15,000 kilometers with my 17B and am wondering at what point is it recommended to repack the bearings? I mean, on a car, they don't repack the bearings that often. Maybe when they are doing the brakes. Would a trailer axle be that different? What are the recommended mileage / times for doing it?
