Puch Hydro fork bearings not seating?

Hey so I went to go assemble these and the bearings just don't appear to slide down all the way. Do I have some parts mismatched here?

Push that thin shim material that’s behind the bearing race down further with a small flat head. If that’s as far as it can go you may need to take it out and cut it shorter, or lightly sand the inside of the bearing cage until it fits over the shim.

If worse comes to worse you could grease the race and use the appropriate sized loose ball bearing too

You have maxi bearings. Magnum bearings are larger id

Oh duh. Daniel is totally right. I haven't worked on magnum-sized things in a while oops
