Happy Fathers Day everyone. After determining that an inner axle seal wasn’t needed for my application, I decided to start putting it all together. It doesn’t look like the axles go far enough in the tube. I smacked them with a dead low to make sure they were seated and there’s no question they’re all the way in. You can see the edge of the seal sticks out too far preventing the retainer from even going on the threads of the T bolt enough to start the nut with a lockwasher on it. I know those nuts only torque to 40 lbs and I know to tighten them diagonally. Does the retainer not snug up against the brake backing plate? Are my parts wrong?

It looks like the bearings are all the way on to me.

The retainer is only wide enough to sit in front of that black O ring. It looks like it needs to be wide enough to fit over the next step up so maybe another 3/8” or so.
