Hello all again...

I've removed the hubs from my 13ft Scamp, and they are stamped "Dexter 8-257". My Scamp is a 1997 model. I don't have studs; my hubs take lug bolts. In my other posts, I describe that I am wanting to change my rims and have been looking for new lug bolts to no avail in stainless or bolts that LOOK like standard lug nuts. So, I am looking into just swapping out the hubs for ones with studs already attached.

My hubs clearly state 8-257 on them. But, when I search for that number at Dexter, that part number pulls up a hub that looks similar to mine, but it HAS studs. I thought, "GREAT!!!!" But then, I looked at the published dimensions...7" X 1 1/4"...and that doesn't josh with what I have. Also, the complete part number on the Dexter site was 08-257-05, which I don't know what the "05" stands for. My hubs measure 7" diameter and about 2 3/8" depth...what exactly does Dexter refer to with the 1 1/4" measurement??? Are the current Dexter hubs more shallow than the ones I have?? If they are, shouldn't they have a "more" different part number??

Does anyone have either of these hubs or experience with them and can comment???

Man, I wish SOMETHING about this situation made sense. Why does everything have to be some strange illogical quest???

Thanks everyone again!

Jeff

The width of the brake shoes? 7" diameter by 1-1/4" wide?

Michael,

Part No. 008-257-05 is the correct part number for the hub only. The hub-drum kit, part number K08-257-91, includes nuts, hub & drum, seal, grease cap, and bearings.
