    Angry Damn Pilot Bearing

    I cant seem to get the pilot bearing to come out for anything. I have already tried the slap hammer, grease trick, the toilet paper trick, and i have even tried to create my own puller. I am out of ideas. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm telling you man...

    2 cans of air turned upside down, and freeze the damn thing. Then use ur puller and slam that SOB out of there. Give it a try, we do it on stubborn bearings all the time at work!

    Talking Finally!

    I tried about everything, and it had to be the last thing that i tried that worked. I used a die grinder with a carbide bit in it. It ate right through the bearing. I was amazed. I pulled it out with my finger!
