Bearing Buddy Model Selection

How to select the right model

Genuine Bearing Buddy


Pick a genuine Bearing Buddy® to match your hub bore.

To convert a model number to the hub bore in inches (or dust cap diameter), simply place a decimal point after the first digit in the model number.

Model #1980, for example, fits a 1.980" bore hole diameter.

Our 2080T (threaded model 2080) will fit the Reliable oil bath unit that is on many of the EZ Loader trailers. 1781

A somewhat less accurate, alternative sizing method, uses the Size Gauge Card.  The card can be used to select a Bearing Buddy® model based on the size of your dust cap.

*The 1980 and 1980A both fit a hub bore of 1.980 inches, however the 1980A has a blue ring which acts as a visual lubricant level indicator inside the hub.
