Hi. I'm prepping for my new fork install. Done many on BMX, but never on mtb & never on a front shock fork. Just out of curiosity of wanting to see if I have every headset piece, I slipped the crown race onto the steerer tube, without any force. Crown race is just laying there. I didn't use a PVC pipe to bang it down yet. There's about 1/4” to 5/16” of space in between the bottom of the crown race & the top of the fork crown. If I push it down with hand strength, it'll probably only go down another millimeter. Am I to believe that banging it down with a PVC pipe will set it onto the fork crown completely? I'm afraid of chewing away the steerer tube. (first pic is bottom cup, cartridge bearing & crown race with seal, upside down.) Thanks
