Default 1 way bearing and main gear

Is there an easy way to put the 1 way bearing into the main gear without breaking the main gear.

Sorry, my bad sense of humour.

You can either use the Align bearing removal tool as a press piece or a large bolt with nuts and washers...
The bolt should fit through the bearing and the washers should be big enough to act as press faces on the bearing and gear face.
Insert the bearing from the top, put a washer on the bolt and put bolt through bearing and gear.
place another washer on the bottom followed by the nut.
Tighten up and the bearing will be pressed into place.
When the nut won't tighten any further (don't over tighten) then bearing should be level with the bottom face of the gear and it's done.

Alternatively, use a small vise with flat jaw faces. You might have to take the back jaw off and thread the main gear into the vise.
