Spindal was so tight I had to hammer it to get it in. Crank arms were almost imposable to get on as they were tight to. Now the spacer that sits in the bb is loose and I can here it bouncing around as I ride. Bearings are as tight in as possible. Is ne of this normal?

it could be that youre bb bearing spacer is just a tad short from contacting the 2 bb bearings. just grease the spindle and that will stop the noise. !
