Depends on how tight they are. If they came out with a little heat, try chilling them, and possibly pull them in with a nut and bolt through the hub. You may have a better tool, a press. by: 188.8.131.52
My thoughts too Keith. Throw the cups in the FREEZER... heat the hub with a hair dryer... see if then you can slip them together.
Offhand... did you mask off where they seat? I would hate to se an over-ambitious re-chrome lay even .001" in there.

Don't tell the Missus and put them in the oven on a low heat for 30 mins!

Well, I was going to ask if anyone had access to (or knew where I could acquire) a 12" diameter rim (Westwood or Westrick) that would take something like a 1.75 to 2.25 tyre (approx 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 inches in old fashioned talk), but the mention of cake knocked me off course a little. Sorry JS, I should have started a new topic for this. I'm still searching for a rod brake rim for my old Hopper tradebike (the one with very small forks), I almost solved the problem with a 14 x 1.20 moped rim....but it was just too big, when the tyre was fitted. The search goes on and on and on ! Steve p.s. A 12" diameter rim takes a 16" tyre....this subject has been an education for me ! by: 22.214.171.124

That's the problem when you starting mixing moped wheel sizes with bicycle wheel sizes, my head was spinning....but not the wheel ! JS, good luck with your bearing cups. Steve by: 188.8.131.52
