I decided to check my bearings as I have a hub that won't keep a dust cap (I've tried several types, including the bearing buddy type cap). I found I've got one very worn spindle. Any ideas on why the hub won't keep a cap? Maybe somehow it got warped. Do you know where I can get a hub/ spindle set?
Thanks.

Have you completely disassembled the hub and bearings to look for wear?

The races, and bearings would have to be really bad to chew up the spindle.

Anyway of posting pictures of whats goin on?

Hey Stiemmy-

I did pull it all apart the other weekend - both hubs.  I didn't take any pics.  The funny thing is the worn spindle is not the same side as the hub that won't hold the cap.  The bearings were a bit pitted on both sides.  There is a big bearing size groove on the bottom of the one spindle.  I didn't have any parts, so I re-greased both sides and put everything together.  It all went back together pretty tightly.  I picked up two sets of bearings locally and thought if I could find a new spindle for one side and a new hub for the other, I'd put it all back together with the new sets of bearings.

A 4-bolt trailer hub will work as a replacement. Here's one as an example. https://www.etrailer...8-91-05UC1.html

Thanks, Austen. In doing some web searching I did see references to someone using trailer replacement hubs, but couldn't find specifics. The web site you linked has staff to help, I'll see if I can find the right ones.
