The normal procedure is to heat the cover to 212F, at which point it expands enough to settle in without any more than gentle taps with a rubber hammer.

Am I missing something here?

outuput shaft itself

I replaced the output shaft bearings. The cover side bearing was not fully seated on the output shaft. I removed the ouput shaft from the housing after not being able to get a good reading on the recess of the bearing in my shim plate after I heated the case and installed all components. This happened during my shimming process. I put the output shaft in a press and a couple of strokes on the pump and I noticed the bearing seated properly onto the shaft.

Now I'm tracking with you - this was seating the bearing on the shaft, not in the cover! Got it!
