If I was up against this and had no one to ask I'd relieve the inner bearing race ID enough to clear unless a different bearing would clear.

I have had pinion shims w/ID too small to sit flush w/o being opened up to clear the fillet... but that's a different deal obviously.

Good luck.

I found a "tip" on Youtube concerning using an old inner race to press the carrier bearings, and bingo! Worked like a charm, now fully seated.
