9. With our hubs freshly cleaned and painted, we tapped in the new races. Be sure you put the larger opening of the race towards the opening of the hub. Getting the races in is tricky. There are race-installation tools, or you can tap them in with a brass punch. We use brass because it won't scar the race or the hub. Another method is to use the old race and a punch. But first run a grinder over the outside of the old race so it doesn't get seated in the hub.
