I'm going to have to disagree with you on your statement about vertical end play of the hub. Even when the bearing is new and the nut is tight, as I recall, there is noticeable end play of the assembly that makes it seem like something is really wrong. It's not until you install them both in the tractor and properly shim it that end play becomes what it should. Those axle shafts butt up against each other inside.

You may be correct... but I don't recall seeing much play in the 3000 I dealt with. I remember the hub will roll around some on the cone but as I recall the bearing is an interference fit on the shaft.

Yes, the bearing cone and roller assy is most definitely a press fit on the shaft, however, if the hub is not bolted to the axle housing, it is free to flop around a little. In other words, there is nothing to force the hub (and installed bearing cup) towards the cone and roller assy until the hub is bolted to the trumpet housing. A fairly tight seal might be what made it feel snug.

I felt it necessary to correct you here so that others don't think that a problem exists where there is none. End play of either side cannot be checked until BOTH axles are installed.
