ok I got you, are you talking about when you press the new bearing in, or press the hub back into the new bearing?

I was under the impression that when you press the new bearing in the wheel carrier you should use a disc that covers most of the bearing, so that it doesn't separate, then when it is seated and time to drive the hub in, to use a smaller disc on the back of the bearing to drive the hub in, and only put pressure on the inner race (inner ring) then?
