Hopefully asking in the right forum.

Got a new front wheel. Setting end play. With no inner spacers installed the bearings get so tight the wheel stops spinning, no end play with no inner spacers in the hub between bearings. What am I doing wrong? Frustrated as a monkey fucking a football.

Axle in a vice > outer spacer > inner bearings(cone) > outer race > hub in > hub out > outer race > inner bearings(cone) > outer spacers to threads on axle > washer > lock washer > nut.

I have two inner spacers and shims and a top hat but none of those are in the wheel on the axle on the vice and the wheel has zero end play.

thanks
