I just wanted to drop you all a note of thanks for all of your insight and help with installing the DoubleBearing hubs on my series one Lotus Seven. I went with Doug's recommendation on using the sealed outer bearing and I can finally say that after about 50 miles of driving, I still have rear brakes that are actually dry.
I followed all of the instructions that you all gave me and things went really easy. I did wind up leaving out the bend-over lock washer and just using loctite on clean threads. I went to 120 ft-lbs of torque on the big nut.
