was it the hub assembly that had the bearing cone already in it? Howling bearing is also a sign of a dry bearing. Reason I ask if the cone was already in the hub, it could have the incorrect pitch on it causing it to have a big highspot causing it to howl. Always use the complete bearing kit where possible. Knock the cone out of the hub and use the one that was supplied with the bearings.

Recheck and make sure they are packed sufficiently as well.
