That is a really useful tutorial and a great service to the community.

I will just add that the one-way-bearing should be pushed a little further in, so it does not touch the bearing on the tip side.  The S8 tool does that automatically but most people don't have it.  For that you can use a washer that you temporarily add to the tip shaft and use them to push the owb in.  After installation of the owb you remove the washer from the shaft and install the rest as Chris said.
