You keep saying "adjust bearings". What do you mean? They get installed and the adjustable ring gets adjusted. Not too tight to distort the bearings, and not to loose to cause slop. Is there some other "adjustment" I'm missing.

Torquing the head nut is not solving the problem. I tried it with and without. The yoke has been distorted I believe. I will fix the yoke or get a new one.
