I am swapping forks from one frame to another. As I can't get the fork crown race off, the simplest thing seems to be, to tap out the frame races and then press them into the frame I am moiving the forks to. Though I can borrow a headset press to install the headset in the new frame I don't think I can lay my hands on a headset removal tool.
So my questions are:
Will I be able to tap out the frame races (working around the race with a hammer and bit of wood so I don't damage it? Or is it going to be so tight as to make this impossible?
Once the races are out, are they likely to fit the new frame? I realise in theory the sizes are the same, but not sure if this works in practise.
PS I plan to follow the installation instructions on the Park Tools website. Which I have always found clear and easy to follow.
