Sounds like you need to check the washer that goes between the castle nut and the cone washer. Not sure if the EA81s and EA82s are the same, but at least on the EA82s that washer needs to be convex out, so it makes contact with the inside of the castle nut and the outside of the cone washer, otherwise it won't hold the torque.

As above, there should be another flat washer of a few mm thick between the cone washer into the hub & the castle nut.
If you don't have these, then you won't be able to get the castle nut tight as it will run out of thread.
