Even easier is to use truck or car inner tube. Cut it so it drapes over the top of the bearing. Secure it to the top of the mast with a hose clamp.
Another trick, although the mechanical purists might not approve, is to pump grease into the thrust bearing until it comes out of the housing.
If your bearing has a Zerx grease fitting(sp?) mine did, this is what you are supposed to do. It purges water and ensures everything is properly lubricated. I used a good quality all temp grease.
The bearing didn't fail, the tower leg did YMMV :-)
