Replacement axle on the HF 1150

Postby robj » Tue Jul 14, 2015 9:19 am

This came in and looks nice. No more stamped hubs and the axle was starting to camber a bit. No wheel wobble!! Hopefully the allow wheels will hold up better.

This is the one from Eastern Marine, 57" hub face to hub face, 4 on 4 pattern, 1.5" tube, hubs bearings, lug nuts.

I am building a HF 4 x 8 trailer and would like a better axle spaced a few inches wider. This looks like a good option to research , thanks

The hubs were on and packed. First road trip was about 30 miles. they were a little warm(the old HF were never more than ambient temp). I got home and backed the crown nut back one space on one side and 2 spaces on the other. All good now. Got a 1500 mile trip coming up.
