Your trailer is equipped with Vortex Hubs/Spindles form Tie Down Engineering. The hubs are pre-grease and assembled at the factory and should not require any additional adjustments. The Vortex Hub uses tapered roller bearings adjusted to a maximum .006 end play. The twelve sided castle nut easily maintains this maximum .006 end play. The configuration requires a minimal amount of end-play that is factored in at the time of assembly.

Vortex Features:

  • Stainless Steel Wear Sleeves on factory assembled spindle/hub units
  • Completely sealed lubrication reservoir permits maximum lubrication
  • Super strong threaded removable grease cap
  • Premium grade Lucas Oil Marine Grease (100,000 miles)

What Makes Vortex the Best

The rear seal rides on a stainless steel wear sleeve. This provides longer life for the seal as the surface does not corrode. Corroded or rusted seal surfaces act like sandpaper on the seal causing premature failure.

Vortex lubrication makes changing or adding grease easy with no need to remove the hub. The threaded grease cap is easy to remove and replace. No more knocking the cap off with a hammer. Lucas Oil Marine grease is a premium lithium based complex fortified with rust and oxidation inhibitors, high pressure additives and provides a high degree of moisture resistance and washout properties.

These features allow Tie Down Engineering to offer a 6 year, 100,000 mile limited warranty. See separate warranty sheet for details.

The Vortex Hub/Spindle is designed to be a no maintenance hub for 6 years. If you should need to add grease or remove the hubs for any reason, follow the instructions listed in this owner’s manual.

TO MAINTAIN THE FACTORY WARRANTY, LUCAS OIL MARINE GREASE MUST BE USED WHEN ADDING OR REPLACING GREASE IN THE VORTEX HUB.

Adding or Changing Lucas Oil Marine Grease

Your Vortex hub/spindle is equipped with the Vortex Lubrication System. Should the hub/bearings require additional lubrication for any reason, the Vortex lubrication system allows you to do so without removing the hub or having to re-adjust the bearings. New Lucas Oil Marine grease is pumped into the zerc fitting at the end of the spindle, travels to the rear bearing where the new grease pushes out the old grease through the rear bearing, center of hub, and then through the front bearing.

  1. Remove the Vortex grease cap, unscrewing in a counterclockwise rotation.

  2. Use a standard grease gun loaded with Lucas Oil marine grease to pump grease into the zerc fitting located on the end of the spindle.

  3. Pump the Lucas Oil Marine grease into the zerc fitting while slowly rotating the wheel. Grease will flow out of the hub around the front bearing.

  4. When the grease appears to be the new clean grease, remove the grease gun.

  5. Replace the Vortex grease cap. Turn in a clockwise rotation until the o-ring on the cap is in contact with the hub surface. Turn an additional 1/4 turn to seal the Vortex cap to the hub. (This is similar to installing an oil filter in an automobile)
