I hammered in a new pilot bearing with a 12mm socket (using bearing grease as well). I tried to hammer in the pilot bearing seal, but only messed it up. I can't hit it perfetly centered every time, since the socket face is not perfectly flat, and the opening in the e-shaft is tapered.

What's the best way to install the pilot bearing seal? That is, after I order another one.

I used a socket, but not a hammer. Kinda drive it with your hand.

I remember using a 14mm deep socket, but i could be wrong.
