If there had been just a little play, I probably would have just adjusted the cones. but with as much play as it had, I wanted to check the bearings, cones and races for damage. Since I was going to be taking it apart anyway, I overhauled the hub. I disassembled it. Cleaned all of the parts. I replaced the bearings. The cones were damaged, so I replaced those as well. Lubed everything up. Assembled it. And then adjusted it.
