If you don't have all the proper tools, I suggest pulling the swing arm/Hub, and Doing it on a Bench.......if you have an extra Set of hands to help you, get it in a good large vise, and Gentle press the whole assembly in at once.....
then set hub on brake drum as it should normaly rest, and Drive in the stub axle.......this will work best if the drum is sitting on top of the wheel so that stub goes all the way home......
Are you gettin the back side nut tightened down all the way....? Are you using the nut socket back there....?
Back Bearings are a pain......once you get them right, they should last another 150,000 or more miles.......
Hope this helps,
