help...can't tighten front wheel

Ok,

I have a '79 Chevy truck K10. My front passengers wheel keeps coming loose on the spindle. I've adjusted it according to the specs in the book, as well as replacing the inner and out wheel bearings, racers and seals.

The problem is, when I put it on, it seems nice and tight, but as soon as I drive it, it loosens up again. I was just looking at it, and it seems as though the hub isn't tight around the bearing. Is this somthing that happends over time? To my knowledege, the hub is original to the truck which would mean it has over 200k on it. should I replace it?

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,
Steve
