Henry,

For the Love of God, please write in paragraph form! I read a brick back there of text!

THE FIX:

Mike S. aka Grandpa Cobra recommended the following:
1. Remove the wheel.
2. Take a wide 1/2 washer and a wheel nut flipped upside down and use a socket wrench to tighten the wheel nut until the wheel nut and washer are flush to the hub/rotor. Doing this should properly align the lug within the hub.
3. Remove both inverted wheel nut and washer and attempt to remount the wheel once both lugs have been realigned.
4. Once the wheel is remounted all is good.

I'm sorry I don't have any pics at this moment of the hub, but upon close up inspection, (of which pictures will be posted) the hub appears to be safe and normal. If the lugs within the hub were even at a 15 degree angle, of course I'd be upset. But these were barely out of alignment and prevented me initially from mounting the wheel.

I do hope this helps those who are following my build.

Jay K.
