From what I can make out on the diff you should not need anything pressed in - someone jump in if that's wrong. I think the pre load shimming is the thing you have to be really careful about most. The wheel bearing and bearing retainer collar need to be pressed or shrunk on. I tried half shaft in the freezer (-18C) and bearing in the oven (+180C) and it did not work. Was not amused and my wife had total sense of humour failure. Ended up making, in the absence of a press the simple tool pictured which worked. The bearing retainer could be heated much more with propane and slipped on no problem - have a damp rag handy so there is not too much heat transfer to the bearing.
