People often make the same mistake twice, which is why people often don't catch wrong answers on a test when they double check before handing it in to the teacher.

Not saying the OP did make a mistake just that he's both the student and the teacher where both have never done this job before. Not what you'd want if it was your bike being serviced.

The first thing I thought of is one too many balls on one side. The second is if the cone has a dust cap pressed onto it and if this cap is catching on the hub's dust cap. One should apply enough grease so on reassembly excess grease is squeezed out and gets wiped off. Andy
