Yeh, I saw that Mr RCOM had a posted a link to a manual on the other forum also. Getting the bearings out without damaging the race is primary and heating the hub while freezing the bearing for assembly are necessary. Good Luck Augie

I don't see anywhere in the shop manual that the bearings are or need to be frozen to install. I frequently use liquid nitrogen for bushing installation. All you really need are two sockets the size of the bearing outer race and a bolt tighten and this presses your bearings into place. You can also do one at a time. Avoid at all costs any contact(pulling pushing pressing) on the inner race or balls and holder.

Fulltilt1 is correct. That is a way to press them in. Heating the hub and cooling the bearing eliminates the need for the press. As with all tasks, there are several methods that work. There's more than one way to skin a cat. Good luck. :)
