Your outer bearing should be a slip fit. It has to move freely to properly set your bearing preload. If you are really concerned, use loctite 609 on the race, keep it clean when assembling, and set the preload quickly. That is a low strength retainer that can easilly be broken without heat but will keep bearings from spinning. Typically used on electric motor bearings.
