Trailer hub replacement

Hi,

I have my rib on a Bramber Trailer that has an AL-KO axle on it.

I'm looking to get a spare hub assembly with bearings, as i understand that if s set of bearings fail it is easier to change the whole hub.

Were can i get one from as Bramber want 112 + vat. Is there anywhere cheaper?

Chris is that a sealed bearing? if so the torque is over 200 ft lbs. You will need 3/4" drive sockets and a 4 foot bar to extend a large breaker bar to get the hub nut off I normally have to stand on the end of the bar to get enough leverage. Normal 1/2 sockets aren't enough so I borrow some big stuff from the tank workshop at work to do the bearings. I snapped a 1/2 breaker bar in January trying to get the hub nut off.

Post a photo of the nut without the hub cover and we will tell you what you have.

Pete

Trailer hub replacement

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the info.

It is a waterproof bearing and having spoke to Al-Ko the replacement number is 1302314 with a M12 bolt.

They wouldn't give me a price as i have to contact a dealer. The one nearest to me in Hull said they were a pain to deal with, and also didn't have a price.

Any ideas?

Chris

Try these ...

http://www.trailertek.com/acatalog/Drums.html

good service and usually better on price >> I have the "dreaded" Avonride version of Alko and keep a spare pair of complete hubs for quick service replacement ;then swap out bearings in the old set at leisure,..... you can buy the bearings from bearing specialists or car spares outlets, which are a much cheaper source.
I have found changing them every 2 years prevents any problems .... sealed for life !!
