    i'm getting ready to head to new york in a week to do some smallie fishing and want to pick up a spare set of trailer bearings(because they just NEVER seem to go bad in the driveway!).without taking them out how can i find out what size i need?
    thanks for the help in advance!

    Ask the dealer where you bought the trailer what size they take and then go buy some where they are less expensive.

  3. I think you may save yourself some headache if you were to take them out and give them a good cleaning and re-packing before you go. This will ensure you have good clean bearings for the trip and give you a chance to change anything that may need changing at home in the garage. I wouldn't want to have to change bearings along the highway, especially if I hadn't done it in a while. Also, this will remind you exactly what you need to take along in case you DO have to change them on the road. At the very least, it should only take a few minutes to pull the hub and check the spindle size.

    taking them out and re-packing is probably the best option.i bought it last spring from a private seller but took the boat to a dealer in hinkley to have the motor checked out before i bought it.the guy also checked out the trailer and bearings for me before i brought it home.
    i'll just take one set into the napa store and buy a couple of extra sets.
    thanks guys!

    take off the grease hub and measure the axel diameter .prolly 1 inch and go from there. napa will help you out or bearings inc. which is now applied industrial tech.
