Well done, Bit late but was going to say the tapered spacer needs to fit into the internal bearing.

Back Together :046: Happy days. Nice tyres BTW.
You said the wheel feels a little tight when rotating by hand but the brakes are not rubbing. Cloudy or others may have some ideas on this but It might be that the chain is a little tight check your manual I think it should be about 40mm slack. It would also be an idea to check the bearings for any lateral movement of the wheel or a rumbling sound or grinding feel when rotating by hand. you might have to remove the brake caliper to hear it properly.
Other than that i would just keep an eye on it for the first couple of rides. Enjoy :152:
