The bearing preload is easy. While rotating the hub, tighten the snot out of the nut. This makes sure the bearing is seated right on the spindle. Then back off the nut until loose, then tighten until all the slack is gone and there is some light resistance to turning the hub, then back it off just a smidgen. You want all the wobble gone, and just a tad tighter than that, and it will be good to go. No help on end play.
