3/4″ axle washer is suited to Holden and Ford axles or LM and SL profile axles only.
The axle washer when tightened places pressure on the outer bearing so that the inner bearing is locked into position.
The outer bearing slides on the axle profile and is actually the adjustable bearing that allows adjustment due to bearing wear.
How to install a split pin
Bend half of the split pin forward across the end of the axle. The other half or shorter half should be bend back towards the bearing.
Ensure when bending 1/2 pins back towards the bearing. The pin is flat on the axle nut and not sticking into the bearing itself.
Finally, axle split pins are an essential part of the axle assembly. Without the humble split pin, the entire hub assembly and wheel will detach from your trailer or caravan.
