Boat Trailer Hub Assembly Change
Short update video for the Jon Boat project. The bearings on both sides of the axle were in terrible shape. Not knowing how long they had been this way, instead of new bearing we went with an entire new hub assembly. For $80 and all new hardware, it was a no brainer! As always, any questions feel free to ask in the comments. Hope you guys learn a little something and enjoy!
You can get a hub with everything you need for about $40 bucks at Northern tool or Harbor Freight or Academy Sports and I got a few on Amazon for about $25 a few times.
FYI to people.
And u should have a spare as well. :-)
Get a set of Air Tight Bearing Protectors and have peace of mind. Here's the website www.airtighthubs.com
You need to pre-load your bearings (adjust) before putting cotter pin in and also oil/grease your lugs.
Yes it's that easy, I have a spare hub in my truck tool box as well.

Once a year we loosen grease and re tighten our lugs before going on our annual Keys trip. This year added new dust covers, after I cleaned and re-greased everything.
3rd year on these hubs and they still look pretty good.
