The difference with my trailer was a tang bent in one of the slots of the nut, not a cotter pin. Otherwise it was informative.

Great DIY article. Living in Michigan, I'm quite used to seeing folks heading "up north" for weekends dragging their toys behind them. I have said for years that I've yet to drive up north once where I didn't see a trailer of some sort sitting on the side of the road with one wheel propped up. You would think people would learn from seeing that. My son-in-law was getting ready to drive out to Phoenix dragging a motorcycle behind his van and together we re-packed his wheel bearings which never would have survived that trip west!

Pretty good step by step. Maybe I missed it, but you should consider installing a NEW grease seal, not re-install the old one.
All in all pretty good directions.
