You can get the entire hub at Husky's Trailer on I45 at Little York. The hub comes with races installed, bearings, seal, lug nuts, and dust cover for about $30 each. You have to use the old castle nut, washer and cotter pin.

I like that Husky's store, and more than their next door neighbor competition.

Are the parts in that kit of high quality? That seems unbelievably cheap somehow.

I posted a reply to your question on the other forum but I'll give you a little more info on this one. I once spent several days observing truck axles being disassembled and inspecting the bearings because one had become disengaged letting the wheel roll across the road and killing the oncoming driver. Needless to say, that involved a lawsuit and all bearing manufacturers were included. The net result was that every bearing failure was of Chinese manufacture. I have seen so many failures of Chinese bearings that I wouldn't put one on a kids wagon. Some are of fairly decent quality but none are the quality of American made (our lab has tested thousands). Some are of such poor quality that they won't even fit in the hub. If you are willing to take the chance of having a wheel coming off and injuring or killing someone, twisting an axle and having to leave your boat on the side of the road just to save a few bucks then more power to you. Quality bearings and reasonable maintenance will solve your problems. Please don't come back and tell me that you have been running Chinese bearings for X years without a problem - some will but are you willing to take that chance?

Funny, I remember my dad liking to buy Timken bearings from the auto place while working on our cars.

Timken is making bearings in China as well. Hopefully better than the average China stuff. Not sure about SKF.
Check an industrial supply like Applied Industrial Technologies or Grainger.
Some vendors through Amazon claim their Timkens are US.

All on my trailer is original and have had no problems....knock on wood!
That is why I am asking the questions. A lot of good advice here.
Thanks!

Timken has always had an excellent reputation in the tapered roller bearing market. Not so sure about now.

I've been retired for a few years now so i haven't stayed in touch as closely. I've heard of problems with the Chinese Timkens but have nothing to substantiate it. SKF made very few bearings in the US. I used to love it when a distributor or end user would tell me that SKF was a domestic manufacturer and I would ask him to take a walk through his warehouse with me. Most never realized that the vast majority of their bearings were made in foreign countries :-)
