I am trying to install the taper bearings on my HF headstock, but when I get the spindle installed I have about 3/16 space between the plastic spacers that go on either side of the gear, letting it slide around on the spindle. Definitely not going to work like that. Anyone else have this issue?

Did you make sure that at least one of the new bearings (rear one) has a sliding fit on the spindle? We have seen that before. That's about all I can think of for the loose fit of the hi/lo gear. Maybe bearing outer race not all the way pressed in?
