Inner hub race and bearing insallation issues...

So I'm in the middle of doing the LS1 front brake swap in my 68.
I removed the hubs and had them ground down. The machine shop removed the races and bearings from the hubs and they came back clean. I forgot how I installed the passenger side hub, but it is now installed with the disc and caliper, all lined up perfectly.
On the driver's side, I put the inner race into the hub, and then I placed the bearing in the race, and now the hub will not fully seat on the spindle - it appears as though the bearing only goes a part of the way down on the spindle, that the spindle is too wide for the bearing.

Did I do something wrong?

Check for a nick or a burr on the spindle, and file down if necessary. Also, sometimes it takes a little extra oomph to slip the grease seal onto the last part of the spindle. Lube the lip of the seal with a little w/b grease.

If I just put the bearing on, it should go really close to the spindle, right?

You do remember that the inner bearing is much larger than the outer bearing, right?

I thought so. It's as simple as making certain you have the correct bearing, and examing the bearing and the spindle for possible reasons why the bearing won't slide over it.

Also, make sure that the races are fully seated in the hub.

The inside race should seat against the spindle shoulder.
