AHHHHHHH! Disc too far back

Forum: 

Hi all,

First time posting on here but read posts EVERYTIME i fix my little sporty. I have a problem after replacing my sportys nearside front wheelbearing the disc and hub assembly has moved 5mm further in then previously. this means that the disc now interferes with the calipers and the disc will not move freely i have checked the wheelbearing is correct and all the like it is correct there are no differences on the back end of the hub that i have noticed...... Any ideas? all help greatfully recieved.

Well something is wrong here isn't it??

Don't like the new shape much.

I don't have a sporty but a colleagues wife has.

Are you absolutly sure you haven't missed out a spacer or the disc is not the right one.
Makes absolutley no sense to either of us.

We can only suggest you take the lot off and check it completely against the old one (Which I hope you have not thrown away)

There is clearly a 5mm difference somewhere.

I have not had to do that

I have not had to do that job on a Sporti yet, so bar with me if this sounds like rubbish.

Is it possible to to put the inner and outer barings or races in the wronge sides of the hub? If so, is one 5mm wider than the other?
