Default Bearing replacement stuck

Hi all.
I replaced both my engine bearings today, and it seems that the rear bearing got stuck, and it isn't seated properly (it has a 1mm gap).
Should i reheat the engine to push the bearing in?

heat it up and place the bearing on the crank - then with gloves on - push the bearing fully in - if the front bearing pops out that's OK - you can get it back in with its still hot - it won't take as much heat to get the front bearing back in - then with both bearing in and fully seated (With the crank installed) let it cool.

You'll be fine - just take your time.
