2WD Rotor install

I had to replace my front wheel bearings this evening. I cannot get the rotor on far enough to put the nut back on the hub. Do these things have to be seated a certain way or what? I'm stuck.

Did you put a new seal? Is it the right one?I've not had any problems w/mine just put little grease on seal & shoulder of spindle that seal should slip over. Did you put a new race in rotor & it is set all the way?Maybe you got wrong seals, only things I can think of.

The bearing is in the cup as far as it can go. It is an 03' F250 7.3 2wd.

Yes I put a new seal in, it matches the old one so I don't think it's the wrong one. I've never done this so I'm not sure if you're supposed to bang it in or what? I always thought it should just slide rite on.

You should not have to bang it I always just make sure & put a little grease on seal kind of feel it line itself on spindle and push it on. Wiggle the rotor a little as you push it up on spindle.If everything you changed is same as you took off it should slide right on,good luck CJ

I just realized that I didn't get a race. Napa told me that I don't need one? But a mechanic just told me the rotor will not go all the way on if I didn't install a race? haha. What the he!!?

Just curious, did you buy new rotors to put on? If you did and the clowns that sold you the rotors or bearings didn't say anything about the race I think I would find a better place to deal with.I have always been told to put a new race when you put new bearing they wear together.
