boat spring maintenance question?

2 posts in this topic

Guys I have a dumb mechanical question about replacing the hubs on my trailer. This year is bearing year for my trailer. WHen I did them 2 years ago each side for some dumb reason used a different size bearing therefore i am guessing 2 diferent hubs. Well this year I am going to just buy 2 new hubs since they are only about $30 each and take 5 minutes to put on. But here is my question: ARE ALL SPINDLES the same size generally? I was looking at some yesterday that said for 1 1/4 " spindle (I think) and it made me wonder. Any one know?

Paul, spindle size increases as load capacity of the trailer increases. If you have two different bearing sizes on your trailer chances are you also have two different spindle sizes. The inner race of the big bearing fits on the biggest part of the spindle. Measure the diameter of both spindles on the area that the inner race rides. If you have two different size spindles go with the bigger one, replace the smaller spindle, buy one hub and two sets of bearings and seals. fishineyes

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
