Re: Correct inner spindle seals

Bearing way too deep. Yes the rubber V should be slightly proud of the spindle face, just enough for a small press or squeeze. I always eyeball it. Course I've done hundreds of them. Before you reassemble, pack that bearing with a good dollop of grease and put the same grease on the V seal and the plastic thrust washer, and also the larger rubber dust seal where it is going to spin on the back of the spindle
