In 23 years in the automotive business, and living/working a farm with tons of machinery and trailers, I have never seen a seal system like that, and hopefully never do.
Typical arrogant yank!

WHEN YOUR IN A HOLE & CANT GET OUT JUST STOP DIGGING!!!!!!!

Guys, as soon as you brought nationality into it and start throwing about insults you lost the argument.

Just an update. I received new hubs (4"PCD) and taper bearings and they fit fine! I also fitted a new jockey wheel as well.

Let's call the whole thing off........




Well done MrHeadsocket, glad you got sorted. where did you get the bits from? I need to source some running gear. I like that jockey wheel clamp, it saves drilling holes.

I reckon if you keep putting new bits on your trailer now and again....... clicky






p.s. I'm not taking the piss I'm genuinely chuffed you're sorted (in case anyone picks me up for going a bit OTT on my new trailer build thread on here and thinks I'm having a pop at people who "make do and mend")

I'll stop digging my own hole now and post this with just one more point, Peter_C might have got it a bit wrong on this thread but he's been invaluable on mine and I've appreciated his input, thanks Peter.




All the best,

Jim

I got everything from eBay (or is it Fleabay on here?) Just waiting for the grease to arrive and then I will fit the new bearings! I only went with normal wheel bearing grease as the trailer won't be getting dipped I'll post a few links tonight

Slight problem with regards to those bearings, they fit fine but the spindle is about 0.7mm too long!!!! (See picture) what should I do? Is there a spacer I could use?
