I had to use a 2 ton bench press and various sizes of rods and cylinders to press out the old bearing races and then press in the new bearing races and the grease seal. Fortuneately I had those tools available or else I would have had to take the wheel arbors to someone with the proper equipment to do the job. With the new bearings greased and installed, this kit contained all the parts needed to finish the job.

It is not necessary to use a press to remove bearing races. I have been changing bearings & races for years on tractors, trailers & boat trailers. A hammer and long handled punch is all that is necessary to remove the races. A brass punch is preferred, but since your replacing the race anyway a steel punch will do just fine. Tap alternate sides of the race to remove it. Use the old race to install the new one by placing it on top of the new one and tapping alternate sides of the old race. On boat trailers make sure you use double lipped seals.
