Fan tower bearing

I look everywhere trying to find an answer does this bearing needs to be pressed in or it can be done without a press?

I used a BFH and a brass punch, oh and some wood blocks to support it.

04.5 CC SB 4x4, Low stall converter, billet input, intermediate, and valve body mods. HPT tuned by Firepunk, FASS 165 Titanium, BMS 50 injectors. Mechanical fan conversion with OEM plastic fan blades, Traction bars.

Now that I think about it, once I destroyed the bearing getting it off, I put the bearing on some dry ice, and heated up the retainer. May have been the other way around, but you get the idea. Slid together no problem.

Thanks , I put it in the freezer tonight with that thought in mind I think with the 110 degrees tomorrow the tower should be hot enough and the bearing cool enough for that , I just didnít want to take everything apart and not being able to finish
