Has anyone experienced excessive play in a newly installed rear wheel bearing? During the restoration of my 72 I installed new bearings. The left rear has no play and the hub rotates smoothly. The right side seems to have excessive play and with the car on the lift I can wiggle the tire and wheel left and right about 1/8th of an inch. Thinking I might have damaged the bearing during install I ordered another one. Yes I bought decent quality from Pelican and not a made in china cheapie. Again I carefully pressed in the bearing feeling confident it was not damaged but once again the hub rocks while the other side doesn't. Thoughts?
