Park CBP-3 Campagnolo Bearing Puller and Installation Set
This complete bearing tool set allows you to remove or install or the pressed bearing used on both Campagnolo and Fulcrum Ultra-Torque cranks. The device's bearing puller has forged arms and tapered edges to pinch under the bearing while a thick plunger system pulls it. According to the PBK website, the installation tool "precisely fits" both the crank spindle and the press fit bearing to assure its proper installation. The bearing can then be tapped into place using a hammer.
Small, flat-tipped screwdriver
A small, flat-tipped screwdriver will come in handy when removing the C-clip above the bearing, which is necessary to do before installation.
Snap ring pliers
If a properly-sized flat-tipped screwdriver is not available, snap ring pliers will also do the trick to remove the C-clip. According to an article at Park Tool's website, use the pliers to catch the edge of the clip and pry it free.
You will also need a hammer or other light pounding tool to tap the bearing into place once it is on.
