Now the application for this part number is an inner or outer bearing for the BTR Spindle or the outer bearing for the number 84 Spindle. Well that should do it for the review of the Replacement Trailer Hub Bearing, part number L44649.
Today we're going to take a look at the Replacement Trailer Hub Bearing, it's part number L44649. This is a high quality tapered roller bearing which is designed for high speed use. Now all bearings when you purchase them will be stamped with the industry standard number on it regardless of the brand. On this one it will be stamped, if you can see sort of right there, L44649. Now the important measurement on the bearing is the inner diameter and that is listed to help you chose the correct bearing for your spindle. On this one the inner diameter in decimal is going to be 1.063 inner diameter and the matching race that this will sit on is part number L44610. We do sell that separately on our website.
Replacing the hub bearings is a pretty straight forward process, and can be done in your driveway with regular hand tools (the only exception being a 36mm socket). I choose to use Timken hub bearings simply because I’ve read so many positive reviews.
