RD400F Wheel Bearing re/re Advice wtd

Finally getting around to reassembling my wheels. Took them apart (and the entire bike) about four years ago. I just want to make sure I have the stack-up correct before installing the new bearings. The factory shop manual leaves alot to be desired. As I see it, the brake side bearings go in first driven home to the inside flange. Then the floating spacer followed by the opposite bearing (with the flanged bushing inside on the rear wheel). Do the bearings clamp up firmly against the inside flange or do they contact hard against the spacer first? I will be using a hydraulic press for the installation.
Thanks in advance!

Bearing goes hard against it's flange. Thus the rear
brake centers properly.

Put bearings in the freezer for a couple hrs, then heat the bearing area
with a torch, and the bearings should go in with little
resistance. Tap in w/a proper sized socket usually works, no press needed.
