You need to state if they are sealed bearings or tapered roller I think.

Right ignore all that I have just edited, I was looking at Nicks photos. Assuming you have sealed bearings (most RM trailers seem to have) the torque is something like 205 foot lbs, which for me is standing on the the end of a breaker bar. Have new circlips been fitted to hold the bearing in place ?

If you fitted new shoes then they will need adjusting.

Have not fitted new shoes yet,
I got the bearings from BRT in Portsmouth took one in to match up they said they are ones fitted to Astra vans astra cars etc. Would it follow that the brake shoes would be the same as i have looked on trailertec web site and they charge 49 (for trailer brake shoes) where as Part/Co if they are the same are 15 is there some thing special about trailer shoes.

I would go with Part/Co for that price and change all the springs at the same time. Would be a shame to have to go back in there in six months time because a spring failed. Clean up the adjusters in diesel or something similar too.
