The Factory was 52 MM and the New Hub was 52.3mm (0.012” larger) so I sent the Hubs back for a refund. I installed the new Bearings and Races in he Old Hubs and the Problem STILL went away.

After cleaning the Old Bearings I could see that they were Copper In color. Worn past the hard Chrome and Nickel down to the Copper Plate on the steel. KISS! Keep It Simple Stupid” applies here. Hard to believe, but the entire problem was the wheel bearing had worn out! All I can think is since they were “Only” about 90,000 Miles Old was originally Installed too tight or not the best Quality Bearings! I appreciate everyone’s help and PM’s.
