nothing has been changed,bearings looked fine
when i looked at them... replaced dust cover
but wheel doesn't sit in the forks... wheel has a q/r skewer
i may have to mess about with the adjustment
on the cone axle... thank you

check that one of the balls hasn't dropped through into the hub body, this can push the axle out of line.
