Under no circumstances should a tool that induces shock or impact to the bearing be used. The use of an arbor press or hydraulic press is recommended. A tool as shown above (Figure 1) is advised. All force is to be applied on the bearing race face (not on ball). A lead chamfer or radius on the bearing and/or housing is vital.
