Did you polish the 'new' spindle surfaces to a gleam first? Any minute varnish layer or rusty crud will screw up the bearing mating surface, and could lead to a cracked race. Additionally, the spindle is supposed to conduct heat away from the bearing, which is won't do well if metal/metal contact is poor. Rust happens in a junkyard.
