Ask yourself this.  What would happen if the axle nut was loose, lets say the spacer got hung up during assembly somehow, the nut felt tight, but once moving it freed itself.  What will that new gap create?  I really do believe this was an assembly error, we all make em.  Bottom line is for whatever reason MG survived to ride another day.

Son of Pappy :)

 well as removing it the nut you can not create a fusion of the genre, this can happen to change the alignment of the stem with bearing failure. ;)

Prevention is better than cure!
Maintenance of bearings in the parade.

I agree with Pistole.  It's nearly impossible for the bearing to be supplied with missing balls and if had been, you would have known it long before the mileage you accumulated.  Usually bearings fail by overheating and eating the ball cage.  Once that happens, the balls can disintegrate or pop out of the bearing.  The process for assembling a ball bearing is to put all the balls in, then put the ball cage/spacer around them.  Your missing balls are probably laying alongside the road someplace or in your wife's purse like most married guys.  I got mine back as part of the divorce agreement, but I digress...

I dont see anytrhing happening if axle was loose. The bearings would just be free to move slightly on the shaft. Either a quality isue withe bearing at time of manufacture, contamination introduced during its use, or overheated lubricant.

I agree with what someone said previously about not torquing the rear axle correctly causing it to spin. Don't need much elongation of the hole to over stress the bearing.

Or maybe the bearings just went bad...  It could have been any number of things to cause this, but look on the bright side, MG, now you have something to do in your spare time.   ;)

All of his videos have a point, Conrad.  The fun is figuring them out.
