it would be a good idea to measure both the old and new bearing widths.

Cheers for your help thus far guys, much appreciated. I compared both bearings (new and old) before I began the installation, to hopefully avoid these sorts of issues. Width (thickness) measures at 11.94mm, on both bearings. I thought, perhaps the inner race pretrudes past the outer race, causing the inner race to meet the spacer before the outer race seats, but they are nice and flush. Perhaps the outer race doesn't seat to allow for thermal expansion when the brake is applied and heat is generated
