Pressing on Axle bearings... any advice

Going to do the seals and bearings on the axles for a dana 44 for the back of my xj. Finally have a shop press so I'll tackle it tomorrow. Does anyone have any advice or pointers for pressing the new bearings on the axles?

thanks in advance

Just don't press too far.. although that wouldn't do much anyway, unless it's a million pound press...

Heat up the bearing. You can almost drop them on after its "warm". I used the stove, but you can also use a hot plate.
