2000-2001 lta500 - Help with Hub and new bearings in knuckle

So I'm working on my bro-in-law's ATVs and the first order of business was to replace severely worn out wheel bearings.

2000-2001 LTA500 quadmaster

in the knuckle are 2 bearings and in between a spacer.

i pressed in the outer bearing, placed the spacer and pressed in the inner bearing...when I noticed that the spacer is pinched by the inner circle of the bearings and I had to gently massage the spacer to be in the middle...

1 - I thought the spacer would be kind of loose until I fastened the large nut onto the CV shaft (through the knuckle)

2 - the knuckle with the bearings doesn't slide onto the hub's spindle...is that normal? I tried the old bearing and it too doesn't slide onto the hub's spindle. Being so tight I am not sure how to put it on except by hammering from the outside.....but if it is this tight going on, how amy going to get it off in the future.

my bro-in-law says that the hub came off the spindle, but for him too, when he tried to put it back on it was too tight.

I am contemplating sanding the inner diameter of the front and back bearings until it slides on the spindle, but will wait for reply from you all.

Got a reply from somewhere else...indeed the spacer gets tightly pinched between the two bearings...I used a 7/8 deep socket to keep the spacer centered as I pressed the second bearing in.

as far as the hub going back onto the knuckle...a light sanding with 600 grit and a little grease it slid on with light tapping of a hammer.
I did NOT touch the inner diameter of the bearings

looked at some videos and they did the same thing to get the hubs back on.
