The new bearings look like a one piece deal. Is this a new design from the old bearing? How would you replace this new design bearing if it doesn't come apart like the old design? You couldn't get the stub off.

it's easier removing the race with the bearing splitter, and the new bearings are the same design, they just come assembled.
