Thanks for all the info...I ended up doing what I should have done to begin with, and pulled it apart to start over. When I pulled the crankarm/spindle assembly, the bearing seal was "attached" to the inside of the crank on the spindle. I'm assuming this was keeping enough of the spindle from going through the shell that the seal wasn't sitting against the lip on the left side of the spindle and I couldn't set the load correctly. Reinstalled the seal, put the crank on, torqued to 420 ft/lbs with no issue, and spins like it should.
Again, thanks for the help!
