Got my hands on a clean spindle cups and bearings.

Any sage advice on removing and installing bearing cups?

Yes it had to be done is was pretty crusty, covered in a white abrassive powder.

Puller ,punch and hammer? Depends on how much room and direction they come out. Expanding arbor puller? Use threaded rod and large washers to install races. Or correct drivers and a hammer if doable. No punches! Only press on inner race when installing bearings. Be very clean.

The preferred method, after removing the spindle, would be with a threaded or hydraulic puller consisting of a length of 5/8" or 3/4" threaded rod, coupling nuts or hollow shaft hydraulic cylinder, heavy stepped pulling washers and receiver made of mechanical tubing of the appropriate ID.
