6000# Galvanized Spindle-Lube 2x3 straight V saddle boat trailer axle mounts over the leaf springs.
This trailer axle features the Spindle-lube ® hub lubrication system which allows you to grease the hubs without removing them from the axle. Unlike a bearing 'buddy', which only pumps grease into the front of the hub and can often be over-pumped and blow the grease seal, Spindle-lube trailer axles pump the grease to the back of the hub by a hole bored through the length of the spindle where it enters the hub just before the rear seal. The grease then moves forward filling the hub and bearings completely. When re-packing hubs with these trailer axles, the old grease will come out of the front of the hubs, around the tip of the grease gun. The grease should continue to be pumped until new grease comes out of the front of the hub. Then just replace the rubber plug into the dust cap and you are ready to go!!
This custom galvanized boat trailer axle is manufactured to the customer's track and spring center measurements. The track measurement is taken from the FACE of one hub (where the hub and the rim touch) to the FACE of the other hub. The spring center measurement is from center to center of the leaf springs on the trailer. [TIP - measure from the inside of one spring to the outside of the other spring for an exact spring center measurement.] There must be a minimum difference of 11" between the track and the spring center measurements in order for this axle to be built. Axle fabrication requires 5-6 business days for fabrication (excluding holidays and weekends)
