I'm building a 9-inch pretty much from scratch, and I'm trying to install the pilot bearing. Do I need a press to get it in, or is there some trick to it? I didn't have much luck tapping it in with a rubber mallet.
EDIT -- Here's a question about assembling the pinion:
I had the Daytona bearing pressed on the pinion at a machine shop. After I mount it in the pinion support and slide in the crush sleeve, should I also use a press to install the outer pinion bearing, or can I just put the yoke over it and tap it on with a plastic hammer?
Any tips? Thanks guys!
