bearings will have to be pushed into the hubs matey. think they are pressed in using a hydrolic press. will be a pig to do it with a vice. ask ketters as he tried it. best bet it to get new or used hubs without the bearings or when you take off the old hubs dremel out the rust after getting the old bearing out which is a PITA to do in the first place.

thanks Dan. Plan is to shot blast the hubs anyway so they can be coated to last a long time.

if they are shot blasted the new bearing should go in no problem. the old one will be a PITA to get out thought first off. can i hear the word anglegrinder!!

From what i think i got from Dan is that once the bearing is out to use a wire wheel on a drill or sumit similar to clean the surface up. Being that ill be having my hubs shot blasted i dont really need to do this.

Dan correct me if im wrong.
