There is a divider between the bearings built into the spindle, so the best way is a big punch (brass preferably). You just have to get one started and punch it from the inside, There is a spacer between them too. After one is out then the other can be pressed. I had some go pretty easy, and some that were a ***** to get out.

When i did mine, i just put the spindle in the vise and used a BLIND HOLE BEARING PULLER. Have fun with thoughs it took some verbal persuading to get mine out.

Mine were a ***** to get out. but we were at a race and not to many tools. I destroyed them on the way out but did not matter since I had new ones. just used a large socket and big hammer to press them back in

this is the way that i do mine and it works like a charm. weld 2 small beads 180 degrees apart on the inner race of each bearing. this will give you an edge that you can hit on with a punch. also the heat helps loosen them up. generally they litterally fall right out.

We had to use a cutoff wheel on a dremel to cut the inner race out of mine! Once that was out it gave us something to catch with a punch. Needless to say mine were a *****. Make them greaseable and they'll last alot longer! Good luck!

I took a piece of scrap pipe and welded it to the inner race and then drove the one side out with a hammer. Easiest way I have found to do it....that's if you have a welder! Then pressed the other one out with a socket and a big vise.
