Its sad when someone comes over and fixes the problem you were having in 15 minutes.  After i posted this and did some thinking.  I cleaned up the cv shaft with an scotch brite pad.and then removed both seals from the hub.  Then a friend came over and after i explained what i wanted to do he made it look simple.  He installed the inner seal onto the ring first then put the inner bearing into the hub and put the ring on.  After that he slid the hub onto the axle and got it almost half way on.  Then he put on the outer bearing and took the brake hub and used the nut to push the hub the rest of the way onto the cv shaft.  All in all it only took a few minutes.  Now the hub is back on the car and waiting for me to finish installing the rest of the stuff.  What a pain in the rump roast this was.
