    Install cone nuts and lock nuts on one side of axle.

    Fill both bearing cups with grease.

    Set the wheel down flat over a gap, so you can drop the axle through the hub.

    Carefully set bearings in grease

    Carefully insert axle to hold bearing in cup.

    Carefully turn wheel over, making sure to hold axle in place to avoid losing bearings.

    Install bearing in opposite side.

    Install cone nut to hold bearings.
