Being careful not to let any of the needle bearings fall out and get trapped between the cap and trunion, gently drive the first cap into its bore. It helps if you hold the trunion up into the cap during this operation so that the needle bearings don’t fall out. If you have a second pair of hands, this is much easier. Resist driving the caps directly with the hammer once you get them started.
