I'm installing new bearings in my Velomax Tempest front wheel. According to Velomax I need to apply loctite green to the outer race of the bearing that fits on the pressed side of the axle. Is this really necessary? The instructions also show using "bearing drifts" to seat the bearings fully. I don't have the loctite green or the Velomax bearing drifts. I've never installed bearings so I don't know if this stuff is really necessary. Can I just use a socket or something and a mallet to knock the bearing on to the press fit side?
