    Press. I had the machine shop do it at the same time they re-surfaced the flywheel. They normally charge $10, but did it for free since I was doing the flywheel at the same time.

    Hope this isnt to late but here's how I do them. Open your vise jaws wide enough to rest TOB on jaws with collar below. Find a socket that will fit inside bearing and rest on collar.(22 or 23mm IIRC) Tap with hammer. I've never found these to be very tightly pressed. After it comes apart, place collar and new bearing in jaws of vise and crank. You'll be suprised how easily it goes together!

    Yeah if you watch a machine shop do this, you will be blown away how easy it is. I made a piece that holds it out of the shop vac tube extension. I cut away two sections on each side for the ears to sit on. Then knocked it out with a large socket.

    Never gave it much thought. I've always used a bearing driver with the appropriate insert.

    Yep. This is how I do it as well. You need to be careful when pressing the new bearing on though. You can't really crank it down once the bearing seats itself otherwise you'll destroy the bearing.

    Wow, DIY ingenuity! My SIL has a press but hey, if its not a tight press, I may just try the DIY methods. Thanks.
