Front Wheel Bearings

The car I just bought (1983 manual 2.5) sounds like a Lancaster Bomber droning overhead at anything over 40 mph . Steering has the shakes. Front wheel bearings I reckon. Rears got done last week. It's been ten years since I had to do anything other than adjust the bearings play. The Haynes manual says nothing about the subject beyond adjustment. I have the original factory manual and it recommends heating up the hub before getting the bearing races in and out.

Is this strictly necessary? I had hoped I could just drift them out cold like the rears. I know they're conical so I figured the technique would be similar to drifting out the head race bearings of my Triumph.

Anyone recommend the best way to tackle them in a reasonably equipped garage sans oven?

Cheers - even though I just realized I posted in the wrong thread.
