1998 450 foreman s rear axle problems

I bought this from an older gentle man and when we went to put it on the tralier, the rear swingarm didnt have a bolt on the right side and it went sideways and all that jazz. Well long story short im putting it back together after i took apart the whole rear end. Im having a problem woth the axle splines equaling out. On the left side when i tighten the nut it seems to go way to far in and on the right side when i go to put on the hub i don’t have enough threats for the nut to go on but hardly half way. Any suggestions?

I would guess , that on the left side you didn't put the bearing stop , back in place

bearing stop = number 18 in this pic

Yep, what fish said. Take axle nut loose on right side, take left side axle tube off and see if that bearing stopper is there. Put one on, then put left axle tube on (grease that bearing while you have the tube off), tighten axle nuts.

Undo the left wheel, take the axle nut and hub off, and then remove the left axle tube off the axle.

The bearing stopper goes on with the flat side away from the diff, then put everything back on (grease that bearing in the left axle tube!)

That cone was one problem, when i got it all almost assembled. Turns out the axle is bent also, the left side is hugging the bearing in the axle tube.

How bad is the axle bent? Can you take a pic showing what is going on? None of them are perfectly straight that I have ever seen, all usually have quite a bit of runout.
