It comes down to where the spindle is too long. The threaded part is fine, it is the width where the hub/bearings ride that is too wide. The spindle length can be cut down, but there is also having to thread the spindle deeper and the location of the cotter key hole.
OP, have you bottomed the nut and washer, then taken a measurement of the difference between their inside edge and the bearing yet?
