Since others will see this I want to point out

- the front sealed bearing comes out first towards the front.
You need a good circlip tool and remove that first.
-then you remove the backside roller bearing from the back.
That same tool should work or a punch.
-the front bearing is then driven in from the front, it seats.
Then you put that circlip back in to secure it in place.
-then that backside roller bearing goes in the 4mm depth like we talked about
-then the seal

I would lube at each step vs waiting to the end to attempt to get lube in there with a pinkie. Maybe Italians have skinny fingers?

I would have the dry roller bearing fully lubed before I drove it in.

We discussed the grease in the cavity idea already

- lightly grease the shaft
- then put the hub on and torque the nut down
-then put the outer lock piece and thru cotter pin on to secure it in place. Maybe a new cotter pin too.

- then brake calipers and wheel back on.

I hope this helps others! Thanks man.

Longer than I would have like, but it follows the process.

Nice work, thanks.

So it looks like there is also another seal on that inner hub / shaft unit to keep dirt away?
