Re: [DML] Play in rear wheel bearing

Torque the nut. The shaft is an interference fit and until you press the 
two inner races together (by torquing the nut) you will have play

Once torqued, feel free to undo the nut and test again, NOW you will 
have no play because the inner races have been pressed together

I actually press the shaft into the bearing with the flange in place on 
the other side - this is the easiest way of assembling the whole thing 
without worrying about applying the wrong forces on the wrong parts of 
the bearing.
