Lizard trailers

Help - not a rib related enquiry but hope somebody can help...

My father has a Drascombe Drifter sailing boat sitting on a trailer made by Lizard Trailers. Wheel bearings completely kaput. Trailer age uncertain.

Any idea what type of axle this company uses? There are no marking besides the manufacturer decal on the trailer, either on the trailer or the axle.

The dimensions are

Inner bearing 14mm wide, 65mm OD, 35mm ID
Outer bearing 10mm wide, 50mm OD, 25mm ID
Oil seal 65mm OD 40mm ID

Dad has emailed Lizard, hope they might have some idea what sort of trailer it would be. There is no useful info on their website.

you need to quote the numbers off the side of the bearing race to a bearing supplier they should be able to match the ones you have

^^^^^If still visible & the seal should also be marked.

Have a look through this, bearing dimensions are listed:
Taper wheel bearings for towing trailers - Avonride, AL-KO, Brenderup, Bateson, Peak, Ifor Williams - Trailertek
Possibly Bearing kit for Indespension 250 drum - Trailertek ?

Get the numbers off the bearing races as suggested and either go to a bearing supplier or ebay they will likely be far cheaper than a trailer centre
If you can't find the numbers a good bearing stockist like Brammers will be able to supply from the dimensions

Thanks.

I don't have the brgs in front of me but apparently the races don't have a conventional bearing number on them which seems very odd - they may be Chinese junk. I had already found a couple of options on Trailertek which might fit but need to establish the unidentified axle brand.

Awaiting a response from Lizard so will see what comes of that.

If you carefully measure the I'd of the inner race & od of the outer ring & maybe the width then any decent bearing supplier will be able to help you irrespective of the manufacture of the trailer

Thanks folks. Have managed to contact somebody at Lizard after a couple of days trying and I think it is in hand.
