Yea Im hip, Ive tried both Im going to use the old race with a race driver. my drivers only go to 81mm and the depth of race and position worries me. I tried press and Not having a ton of luck. housing in in freezer right now race is in oven. no Im not married. or cleaning my birfs in dishwasher would have been a real prob.Trying to seat it? Use a bearing race driver or equivalent sized aluminum/brass disk and hit it square and true. Alternatively use a press.
This is basic mechanic crap. Same stuff you'd run into on any differential
I found that in master kit right before I finally got it pressed in, good call.I’ve never had a problem pressing them in using the old race. But looking at your picture above it looks like you’re missing your oil storage ring (oil retainer). It would go in before the race to slow the oil from draining out of the smaller pinion bearing.
