Clean off all the grease off the shaft and inner race on the bearing check for debris or burs.

Are these newly installed bearings?

Picture of the cleaned shaft? Apply a lite coat of grease on the shaft and fit it with bearing only

Since it's the original bearing, do you have a vernier caliper? Measure the OD of the shaft and the ID of the bearing. There's something not right. I like what @RacerXXL is saying, and he's got loads of experience in these matters.

My only question is if you have another original bearing sitting on your work table and if it is different.

I have found even the smallest nick or scratch on the shaft or bearing would keep it from going on.

Yeah. If a drift or punch was used to remove it you may have slightly deformed the inner race of the bearing or slightly scored the shaft. Give both a really good inspection.
