  • Mounting the Drum: Carefully align and mount the drum onto the hub.
  • Bolt Installation: Secure the drum using the appropriate mounting bolts (7-244 or equivalent), which are sold separately.
  • Brake Assembly Installation: Fit the specified brake assembly (12 1/4″ x 5″) to the drum.

Typical Spacing Measurements and Tips:

  • Bolt Pattern: Ensure the 8×6.5″ bolt pattern matches your wheel setup.
  • Drum Dimensions: Verify the drum dimensions to ensure a proper fit with your axle.
  • Regular Inspection: Regularly inspect the drum for wear and tear, especially after heavy usage.

Installation Tips:

  1. Ensure Compatibility: Confirm that the drum matches your trailer’s axle specifications.
  2. Gather Necessary Parts: Prepare the hub, mounting bolts, and brake assembly beforehand.
  3. Proper Alignment: Align the drum correctly with the hub to avoid imbalances.
  4. Check Brake Fitment: Ensure the brake assembly fits snugly within the drum.
  5. Follow Safety Standards: Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines during installation.

Final Thoughts: The 12K-16K Axle Drum is a reliable and sturdy choice for maintaining the functionality and safety of your heavy-duty trailer. Its compatibility with a range of axle types and solid construction make it a smart and cost-effective replacement part.
