^ The outer wheel bearing cup
^ The inner wheel bearing cup
^ The axle housing
2. Install the outer bearing into the wheel hub.
3. Install the outer bearing cup into the wheel hub.
4. Drive the bearing cup into the wheel hub using the J 44419 (2) and the J 8092 (1).
5. Install the retaining ring into the groove. Make sure the retaining ring is fully and evenly seated in the groove.
6. Install the inner bearing cup.
7. Drive the inner bearing cup into the wheel hub using the J 24427 (2) and the J 8092 (1).
8. Install the inner bearing.
Important: Each time you replace the wheel hub bearings, install a new oil seal in order to prevent the wheel hub from leaking.

9. Install the new oil seal using the J 44420 (2) and the J 8092 (1).

Since you're a carpenter, you should be good at hammering the cups in. Just make sure you wear eye protection. Let us know how it turns out, so this thread can be resolved.
