After switching forks I've had some play in my stock headset on the 2015 norco fluid 7.1 https://www.norco.com/bike-archives/2015/fluid-71/

I thought rather than try to fix it why not buy a new one. I bought this one from chain reaction https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/mobile/ca/en/brand-x-integrated-headset/rp-prod155612 Brand X integrated with sealed bearings.

My original Headset did not have sealed bearings. When i tried to pop the new sealed bearing in the top was too big and the bottom too small.

It seems the bike may some pressed cups but I'm not sure if i should try and pry them out or what.

I also can't seem to find any of the older headsets my bike came stock with unsealed bearings, are they still made?

What the hell do i do here?
