Shop press questions. Making one.

I have decided to make a small shop press. I have a 4 ton jack that I can use for my press. I know it is not super powerful, but better than nothing. But will it be enough to press the bearings in and out on my 2003 pt cruiser. That is the current job I am needing it for. I have all or almost everything I need to make it onhand. I might have a slightly bigger jack someplace, but the 4 ton was all I could find in the basement where most of my tools and junk are. After thinking about it the 4 ton is probably the bigger one.

The other main question is about the ram end of the press. I am not sure what sort of profile I need to have on the business end.
