another fix...

Cry, when I am rebuilding my motorcycles and come to the bearing replacement part, I put e new bearings in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes. I use a heat gun to warm up the recess in the case where they fit just to the point where it's warm to the touch. Bearings go in real easy without having to hammer them.

Good method. I do this and sometimes use a bit of canned freeze-spray. Cold also works to shrink o-rings. With the spray you have to wait a few minutes before shrinking takes place. Freezer is best.
