Bonanza front rim spacers???

Hey, I replaced the wheel bearings up front and I'm 95% sure there were only the two spacers, the axel, and nut. Is there a third or am I crazy? I can post pics if needed. Also, how tight should the nut be when all is said and done? Should the spacers remain in place and only the bearing spin, or is there play? Thanks.

one spacer on each side and no play , tighten down till the wheel spins but not completely freely then back off a tad till wheel free spins !

there should be some tubes between the rim halves on the axle.

thy are called 'crunch tubes' to keep you from crunching the rims when
you torque the axle bolt. they should be 2-1/8" long or so.

Thanks Guys. If you mean the "tube spacer/cruncher" that within the wheel, there's one on the back not the front. In addition the front has only 3 screws holding it together. It's missing the 3 bolts that seat into the lock nuts. I went to Lowes today to see if I could replace them (the nuts are 5/16) and what I got seem to ride up the bolt when it gets tight. Are both items (tube and bolts) factory for the front?
