Why is it Honda states in the service manual that they want you to press the pinion bearing onto the pinion shaft with the numbers facing out? It's just a split inner race angular ball bearing. I was taught to do this so you can read the numbers on the bearing but tonight I screwed up and pressed the damm bearing on with the numbers facing in and at $80 canadian for that bearing I don't want to damage it trying to remove it and reinstall it. Is there any other reason for this?
