Seating the bearing races
Seating the roller bearing races was a lot easier that seating the lower roller bearing. The use of a rubber dead blow hammer was all it took to seat the upper race. The lower race was a little more difficult, only because the race sits up inside the head tube. You can't easily swing a hammer to seat the race, you need a punch being very careful not to damage the inside of the race.
