Axle Bearing Seals

Recommended Posts

Every year, I pull the wheels off my trailers to clean and inspect the wheel bearings. On my Javelin that has always meant buying four National 473317 seals at $10-$14 each. The last time I went the el cheapo Chinese ones from Summit Racing for about $3 each. I figured even that cheap junk should last at least a year. I lost a grease hub last weekend and didn't notice it until after launching the boat. Since it had be a little over a year I went ahead and cleaned and packed all four. Other than the one the RED EYE hub came off of, there was no sign of water in them. So, I picked up another set from Summit and giving them another try. $16 for four beats the heck out of $50.

Would I have put that Chinese junk in something like a Crankshaft seal, NO, I'm not into buying this Chinese junk, even though it's getting hard to find anything else now, but figured for the short service time I'm using them on the boat trailer, hey, price ain't bad.
