I had two hubs fail right after replacing bearings and seals due the the calibers hanging up and cooking the grease out of them...

The seal surface has what I want to call a slave sleeve that goes over the spindel...It has a hole in it for the grease to come out of it when pumping grease at the end of the spindel. This sleeves got cooked. Anyone know what they are really called and where I can get them?

Thanks in advance,
Scott

I had to replace mine because they cracked. I can't recall the name but I bought them at the local trailer store. They did not have the holes so I had to drill them very gently as not to dimple the surface.

I believe that Chicago Rawhide makes them and they are called Speedy Sleeves. You can buy them at a industrial bearing distributor.

I don't think they are O.E.M.
Maybe someone has tried to salvage the spindles before ?

I carefully marked where that grease hole was on the spindle and measured how far the hole centerline was from the very end of the spindle.
Then installed sleeve where it had to go.
Then marked the above measurement on the sleeve.
Sharpened a really good point onto a center punch and WHAM it thru the sleeve with two pound hammer.
The displaced sleeve metal going into the grease hole keeps sleeve from rotating.

Tie Down sells the sleeves for their quick change / super lube spindles, which is what it sounds like you have. Hard to find on the web site, but a dealer can probley get them for you.

I found them at Ta Mahoney's in Tampa. Thanks guys! They are O.E.M., they are new axles I installed 3 years ago.
