For those who say to put the axle in brake-side first... I've always put it in the way it came out. In the case of my 'berg (which I was working on last night), I happened to be doing the brake side first.
Can the axle be entered either way? I never even thought about that. (In this case it would not have mattered, but now I'm curious.)
