Converto Trailer Hub Question

• CATEGORIES: Features, wanted

Dean’s working on this Converto Trailer. It’s got hubs with a 5×4.5 bolt pattern. He’s wondering how he might find replacement hubs. Anyone have ideas on what would fit?

Here’s the trailer:

    Guessing there is an issue with the hubs? With a few dimensions I would think that a trailer supply place or website should provide an answer.

    Not 100% sure , but looks just like a Spen trailer hub , which used a Plymouth- Mopar wheel . The grease cap screws off like a Spen and had the same locating pin . Mopar wheels were 16” in the 1930’s and 40’s , so maybe an early Mopar would fit .? The pictured wheel looks Plymouth to me .

    On my Converto I couldn’t locate any new hubs, but I did find new bearings/seals at my local NAPA. I just needed the old ones to show them.

    What is the reason for these needing replaced? Spun bearing race? Sometimes it’s easier to just get I the hub repaired then try to find replacements.
