On the other side I assembled the brakes on the bench and bolted the whole thing on.  This made installing the brakes, spindle, and lock plates very difficult.  Plus bending the tabs on the lock plates was tough.  So this time I decided to build the brakes up on the axle.  Here the spindle and backing plate are installed.

Boom.  I think it is easier to do the brakes on the axle rather than installing them assembled.

I packed the wheel bearings and installed a new grease seal.

Hub together.  Two wheels down, two to go.
