You may well need to make a spacer tube to go inside between the two bearings inner races,.. otherwise the clamping load of the bolt will be putting a tremendous side-thrust on the bearings.

The spacer would need to have washers welded on either end to keep it centered so you can get the bolt started.

Much the same as how motorcycle wheel bearings work. They have a spacer tube inside them.
