Bearing seals: #4 on the brake side. #17 on the sprocket side.
Start over. Identify the spacers according to the parts diagram. #12, #2, #15. Look at the chart and see which way they need to point. Which position they go in. Put the hammers away. Far away. When you get things in the right place, the wheel slides in with no problem.
Look at your rear brake caliper. Look at the swingarm on that side. One piece has a slot and the other has a key. The key needs to slide into the slot, not on top of it. Easy to get right; easy to get wrong.
