is a 2010 13' Scamp
with 7" wheels and they have the newer "clip" and not the cotter pin. My axle
is of the EZ-Lube design.
If the Dexter axle
is the EZ-LUBE they will not have the cotter pin. That is what drives the design as to whether it has the cotter pin or the newer-style "clip". EZ Lube works by shooting grease in the zert fitting in the end of the axle
. It transfers the grease through the center hole to behind the inner bearin. The grease then comes back towards the front through the front bearing and out around the outer portion of the hub. Once you see the old grease turn to the newer grease you're putting in there, the bearings have been "repacked".
So, if the axles had the cotter pin, the grease would try and come out the drilled holes in the axle where the cotter pin goes through. You can visit Dexter Axle's site for more explanations and documentation including video clips.
