I recently set off to replace the bearing in the front wheel. I seated the one on the hub seal side; however, the other side doesn’t have a “lip” to seat the bearing against.

So the question is how far should the bearing go in??

After I put the spacing collar in (part #7) I tapped the second bearing in far enough so that both bearings were contacting the spacer. But I think this was too far because now when I spin the inner race on one side it turns the other. Also when I took this apart I remember it not being this tight.

I guess I just need some clarification on how this spacer is suppose to feel.

That would be correct....The condition you describe is normal....
Remember, the bearing inners, spacers and axle don't actually spin once torqued and in the forks.....
The bearing outers (and the hub into which they are pressed/hence the wheel) rotate on the balls or rollers around the stationary centers.....

Phone if you need to discuss further.....540-525-5199....Steve
