Put the whole thing in the freezer overnight. when you take it out have a punch and a big hammer ready.
Before you beat on anything take a propane torch and heat up the carrier but NOT the bearings.
Its easiest to heat the "outside" of the carrier. The carrier will swell a little bit and the bearings will stay cold and a lil bit smaller.
It makes it a little bit easier. Depending on how fast you do everything. Basically get the carrier as hot as possible as fast as possible before the bearings have a chance to heat up and swell up as well.

The easiest way I had found is to put the new bearings in the freezer 1-2 hours......
drink....2-3 beers while waiting..not too many remember you need to use a brass punch and a hammer
put them in my powder coat oven for 15-20 minutes, and beat the old bearings out...working your way around 12 o'clock, 6 o'clock 3 o'clock, 9 o'clock BE CAREFUL NOT TO HIT THE ALUMINUM RACE, trash the old bearings if you have to..
Take the new bearings from the freezer and they should slide in nice and easy, if you need to seat the bearings more, find a huge socket the size of the outer bearing race.
