Deep V Roller Replacement

I know I need to replace the deep V roller to protect my keel because I know the previous one wore out. I have my boat in storage, but wasn't sure if anyone else knew what product to purchase for the upcoming project.

I have found the following deep v rollers at overtons. I think it was around 8 inches.

There were these button cap ends on it as well. I am not sure if I will need new ones of these too or not

I would go stoltz -- yes you will need the end caps - I also added the roller wheels on both ends - had to use a longer roller shaft and cut it down. You get one try with those caps

Do you remember where you got the roller shaft?

I think you'll need the 10" roller and the shaft/pal nut to accommodate. Stoltz is definitely the superior product.

Maybe a different setup for your trailer. I used an available 11" shaft. Barely enough room to get a bite on each end but it worked. Really doesn't matter about the length (greater than 11") as the roller is housed inside the bracket. It can't go anywhere.

etrailer dot come has some shafts and other places as well.

Measure twice, install once...

This is very similar to my setup. Do you have to replace the shaft as well? I would think you would just need to pal nuts (finally found the correct term).

Found this on etrailer:

I replaced my shaft because it was all goobered up from past use. No big deal for less than $10.

Getting the old pal nuts off is fun... Not. They are a pain.

The one you linked is a perfect fit. You're good to go.

I pulled one of the caps off slid the shaft out and then cross drilled a hole in it so i could cotter pin it. That came in pretty handy because I replaced it with another cheaper black roller and it didn't last very long. Not too long after that I replaced it with a Stoltz, and having the shaft cotter pinned instead of dealing with those stupid caps was nice. The Stoltz is holding up great.

Cotter pin is a great idea! I think I will go this route. How long have you had the cotter pin in? Any worries with the pin coming off?

Here is a picture of the end of the shaft after I modified it:

Based on the date that picture was taken it will be 5 years in June. I didn't use a stainless cotter pin because I didn't have one handy, but that would certainly be a good idea.
