yo ash.. incase you still havent found out how to adjust tapered wheel bearings they need to have no free play but on the same token very little pre load. When you re assemble them tighten the nut to finger tight, nip a bit more with spanner/socket etc, turn the hub round a dozen times(beds in the grease etc), back off the wheel bearing and then do up using the weight of the spanner/socket and lever as a tension guide.. then just nip a little bit to make sure of no free play, fit the split pin and refit the wheel..
Presto
