A couple years ago I replaced the origional wheels on mine with some new steel wheels and still have the origional tortion bar set up.
I did this so I would'nt have to deal with odd ball 9 ply tires that need to be special ordered...also like the look of the new steel wheels that are also plentiful and cheap...had to take the hubs to get machined down a little etc.etc. (but that is another discussion)
To your question, when I did the new wheels and tires, my local tire shop replaced the origional problem, so I'm certain they are standard sizes.......sorry to report I do not know what they are though.

Thanks Jorgen for sending the three attachements.
(I was only able to open up the PDF file containing the 1969 Evinrude accessories catalogue which did list a conversion kit for adding trailer brakes, but did not list parts for the brakeless set up).
According to my 1967 Evinrude Trailer parts manual the OMC part numbers are;
Inside Bearing
Seal (Hub) = OMC part 901288
Bearing Cup = OMC part 900474
Bearing Cone = OMC part 975596
Outside Bearing
Bearing Cup = OMC part 900474
Bearing Cone = OMC part 975596
But, these numbers are meaningless at my local Bearing Company.
I do not have the Original bearings in my hands (the originals are still mounted inside the hub on the trailer which is located 220 miles away).
Has anyone on the list replaced their bearings lately with Temken or Koyo bearings, or any other modern brand of bearings?  (or is finding bearings for the original Evinrude brakeless torrsion suspension trailer a big problem?)
Still fishing and hoping to land a number,
