With the bearings in the old hub I find the hub slips over the axle so far the D washer and nut engage the step in the stub axle before they hold the outer bearing face. Plus even with the outer bearing pushed in as far as it will go I have 3-4 mm of slack. TTR assure me I have the correct stub axles.
Sadly the old stub axles seem to be the only "old" parts I can't find - so I can't compare with those.
Any suggestions on the problem would be helpful.
Thanks -- John

However if the axle, bearings and hub are all correct the only way the assembly can end up the wrong length is how far the axle has gone into the upright or how far the bearings have slid onto the stub axle

Suppliers are great at saying the parts are right when what they mean is they've sent what they sell.
Here's a photo of dimensions of both stub axles cribbed from Brian Buckland's book.
Quickest check is overall length which seems to be your problem.
