that is assuming prior owner did not do the upgrade which included a thicker stub axel as well as stronger hub and different bearings.

yellowss7 is exactly right about the upgrade.  The non updated parts are all Spitfire, readily available from Moss Motors.  Bearings, seal, rotors.  The updated assembly is easily recognizable as it has a large exposed nut on the end of the spindle (no cap).  Both the inner and outer bearings with the update have a lip seal, and are very commonly used in Europe on trailers (caravans).  Exactly same bearing is common for trailers  in the US, but without the lip seal which is necessary for this setup.
