If you can find a piece of pipe that has an inside diameter that closely matches your fork's steer tube, that would be perfect. Just don't bang on your new crown race's bearing surface. A work-around is to use a 1" or 1 1/8" open end wrench on top of your crown race. Assuming you have the right sized crown race, it shouldn't take a huge amount of force to set it into place.
