I bought a used front Excel wheel and it's in pretty good condition..the only problem is when I bolted the wheel up I noticed a lot of play in it on the axle...the spacers are correct. I was wondering if it could be the bearings and seals that are bad? Any ideas?

Do you mean play like you can wiggle the wheel when the axle is tightened? If so, then most likely you need new wheel bearings.

My front wheel had a little wobble from the spacer being worn.
