Oh not so good, there should be a large washer between the bearing and the castle nut but not 1cm! If you pack it out with washers will the dust cap fit anyway or is the end of the axle sticking out too far as it is?

There washer is there as is the castle nut but I only have one washer and nut for each axle. I worked out that if the hub is pushed as far back as it will go, the dust cap will not fit on :/

Looks like the shaft is a bit longer than standard easiest solution would be to fit a spacer ring or washer behind the inner bearing to bring the hub forward


just a thought you could possibly use the old inner race out of the damaged bearings as a spacer behind the new bearings.You could cut it to width with a grinder

the new bearing should be slightly forward of the end of the shaft about 1-2mm so that the washer is pressing on the inner race so you can adjust the bearings

This is what I did with mine, the inner race made a perfect spacer with no machining required

+1 for using the old bearing to make up a washer!

I would do this but the old hubs were sealed and so didn't have races! I will get some washers and use them as spacers instead

This is a sealed for life bearing split apart, recon you could do the same and use it to space it out!

Unless you have machining capabilities I wouldn't recommend cutting a washer as any variance could show up in your new bearings. Too risky. Plus does the seal not ride there? A good trailer shop should have some washers for purchase.

that's exactly what I meant too
if there too long just grind to length to suit & if your worried fit the cut side towards the inside of the stub so the outer side the bearings are resting against is square

Accept at only a mm or two wide, any deviation could torque the bearing wrong causing uneven wear. A 1" washer or even two is a better solution.

There is a reason loose bearings tear themselves up since they are running at an angle.
