Best way to replace bearing outers

Having had a bearing seize I'm replacing the entire bearing in one of my hubs, I've got the old outers out and cleaned the inside of the hub, but what is the best way of getting the new outer in without damaging them?

Thanks Nick, I had though of that but was worried about getting the old one stuck and damaging the new ones trying to take them out again.

Don't you mean 'if' it stops raining? Still looking forward to see how your new boat compares, is your trailer working yet?

Trailer sorted fitted a new axle, but I left her down in Salcombe at Easter & not going down till begining of June & plan to then keep her back at home.
So a runn out after that will be good

How was the skiing?

If you are going to use the old race to drive the new race in flip the old one over so it is reversed of the new one going in. This should keep it from getting stuck. If it does jam up a little a couple whacks with a punch should knock it right back out.

My bigger concern would be with the axle shaft itself. Did the bearing spin on the shaft when it seized?

Skiing was excellent, thanks, weather was fantastic but the snow was pretty ropey in the afternoons - child was out skiing me by day 3!

I nipped the hubs over to my local garage and he used a press, I was worried about the shaft and sent a photo to ME who made the axle and they said it was fine, both bearings seem to fit well on the shaft.
