You may be able to drive it off and on I use my press... I am sure there are other ways to do this That being said they are a press fit a press will make EZ work of it even a cheap press will do it... I don't remember how I install them I would wager I use a piece of pipe that fits over the axle and fits the inner bearing race and drive it on. If I pressed it on I would have to drastically change my press set up so I spec I would try driving it on first...

You could heat the bearing in oil it may drop on...

A good rule of thumb if the bearing race is good the bearing is normally good... If in doubt have an experienced wrench inspect it while you have it out. If the bearing is good its as good are better than a new one its a proven part unlike a never ran new one :wink: That's why I go the extra mile to clean and inspect if I see metal flakes when I take it out no need to waist my time I trash it no matter how good it looks...

To inspect the inner race clean it take it outside in the daylight hold it up rotate the rollers and look for issues on the inner race. From the outside Roll the bearing Look at all the rollers for issues.

sealing or poor maintenance caused bruising on this

tapered roller bearing race..
On a slow moving tractor my personal tractor not a paying customers tractor...

I am sure you will see this I am not gonna condemn that bearing as long as the rollers and bearing inner race looks good with no issues. If the rollers and inner bearing have this issue with no other issues its trashed... https://www.timken.com/pdf/5892_Bearing%20Damage%20Analysis%20Brochure.pdf
