375 auto-Can't get wheel hub back on CV axle.

In process of replacing front bearings on 2002 375auto 4x4. Cannot get front left rotor assembly on far enough on CV axle for castle nut pin. Got about 1/4" still to go but can't tighten her anymore. Checked bearings and appear to be proper size. Originaly When I removed the wheel bearings, I could not seperate rotor/ wheel hub from the knuckle until after the knuckle was off of the axle. Other than maybe wrong bearings, is there something I'm missing??? I'm no mechanic by any means!!!!

Check to make sure CV joint goes into hub by itself and you can install castle nut properly. If it does your hub is not going far enough into bearing in the knuckle. Bearing is a 0402-275?

Using all balls 26-1434. Their website says proper size. I bought from them Amazon.ca. Although the same part number, the item description on amazon says rear bearings....

25-1434? If bearing is in all the way you would be able to put C clip in. You did this? Hub fits in bearing all the way?

Yes, the bearings fit the hub, and the hub slides on the CV axle. I am gonna take the knuckle off again tonight and check there. Hoping maybe the inner seal on the bearing may be issue.

Up in the air the extreme angle of cv shaft inhibits movement. I have removed lower bolt on shock to lift suspension up. If that doesn’t work, remove lower ball joint from knuckle too.

No luck. Tried with Shock and ball joints disconnected. Tried every angle. Pulled the knuckle off again and looks like I damaged the new #@#@ bearing. Oh well, waiting for the OEM bearings from arctic cat to arrive for round 2... Thanks for the help, will post results.

Did you make sure inner seal on knuckle is bottomed out and all the way in? I lube around the seal before installing CV joint and hub. You are installing the hub seal after CV joint is in, correct? Just making sure you know when to install this. Other than maybe a small burr on either the CV joint or hub holding it back, everything should go together smoothly. I have one All Balls bearing and seal kit on my 03 400 and never had an issue with installation. I had a momentary lapse of my better judgement and what I have heard, but it's been good so far. It's been about 3 years but I don't do mud or put lots of miles on.

When i used the all balls bearing on my 2014 they had eliminated the seal kit saying it was not needed with the sealed bearing. Did the seal come with the bearing or did you order it from cat? I just went and checked my other 2 bearings and they dont come with seals as well

Nothing better than riding with friends and family

These were updated in 2005 to a 1402-027 sealed bearing which was superseded again to 1402-809. Bearing size is identical other than it's a sealed bearing and can be used for earlier models and knuckle seals would not be required.
