I am in the process of rebuilding the brakes on my 68 i6. While doing the rear brakes I decided to take the axles out and remove the backing plate so that I could clean them up and paint them and also weld the areas where the brake pads wore into the plate. I am putting the right side axle in the housing and the bearing doesn’t seat flush with the end of the housing. I tried to work it in with the plate that holds it in but it just bent the plate. What am I doing wrong. I know it is the right side axle because I only did one side at a time. I’m lost as to what to do.
