+1 on the factory method. Some folks on another site do it completely wrong, by forcing the bearings onto the crank and then forcing the crank into the cases.......WRONG! Bearings are an interference fit into the case and crank should be pulled into the bearing by using factory tools.

Just a pet peeve of mine, factory would not waste time telling you exactly how to do it and making special tools if there was not a good reason to do it their way!
