David, I'm getting yanked around by the garage owner. Not sure what he wants. Say's $500 to rebuild the axle. Or $500 to put the boat and trailer on his flat bed and deliver it. My problem is time to deal with this boats 3 hrs away. He also say's 4 to 6 weeks to get the parts. Glenn

  Glenn, As I mentioned before when I recommended NAPA, the bearings are available and are actually a standard trailer bearing, which means there are standard hubs and wheels available - you should be able to go in and buy the wheels and hubs as a set for a very reasonable price - I paid around $45 on the last ones I bought. I don't know if you have a Northern Equipment store by you, but that's where I get mine. I know you were able to get bearings, if you check the OD of the bearings, then the ID of the hub, it will give you a good idea as to their working. I had a hub and bearing go out on my 17' deluxe - 60 miles away and sitting in a farmers yard - went in and bought the hub, wheel, tire and bearings for under $60 and they all slid right on. At Northern Equipment you can buy complete axle sets, including the torsion type used by OMC, for under $200 - so I think you need to do a little checking on getting a new hub etc. Dave

    Hello Group, Quick recap 1966 Rogue, original trailer. Thought bearing on trailer was burned out turned out hub was shot. Boats still 140 miles away. According to the garage, hubs I got from Tom won't work. They want to rebuild the axle $500.00 + I would be happy to get the boat home. Any ideas? Glenn
