I used a punch to get them out and a socket the correct size to mate with the outer race to put the new ones back in.  I froze the bearing and warmed the wheel just before hammering it home.  While I had the spacer out I filed some notches to make the punch out easier next time.

I haven't replaced the bearings on the C14 yet but I did do this job on the C10 and used a bearing removal tool made by Pit Posse.  It came in a set with various sizes. Worked like a charm. If you are thinking about buying the MP set it should have the correct sizes in it for the C14. If you google the bearings you will be able to find the interior and exterior diameters to know for sure. Bob's method works too.
