Question Rear bearing install! Help!

Well today i started the rear bearing removal on my 1980 911SC. After some swearing and a lot of heat the race finally came out. My question is now i have to reinstall the new bearing. I can press the bearing back into the knuckle easy. Is there a trick to press the hub(part with the lugs) in without destroying the bearing?

Freeze the bearing, heat the bearing sleeve, spray some silicone into the bearing sleeve, use the old bearing race as a 'drift' and gently tap the new one into place using a circular motion. Be sure to get the new bearing started square. Wear gloves, things will be hot, cold, and slippery. Do a search for 'home made bearing press' and you should find a few threads on making a cheap tool, which you can use to get the axle stub back in.
