Get a dowel or bolt that just fits in the bearing then fill the bearing up with grease then use the bolt/dowel as a piston to force the bearing out by taping it with a hammer.

Thicker grease and more of it and really sharp blows.

Just noticed your other thread you are wanting to put a Auto behind it, do you realy need to remove it?

i sure do as where the spigot sits there is a bit on the torque converter that does in to there. so it sits in properly. i tried yelling at it, spitting on it and punching too but they didnt work either

You need to find a drift exactly the same size as the ID of the spigot bearing.
A 1/2 ext bar, with some duct tape will work.
Bearing grease 3/4 fill the spigot hole, and try to drive the ext bar in.
Keep trying, and if grease comes out past the ext bar, more duct tape.

i've removed them before by sticking a long extension in there and gradually wiggling out the bearing by smashing the side of the extension with a hammer. takes fukin ages but it works (totally destroys the bearing tho but who cares)

that should work, just make sure u get as much grease in there as possible. ive also her you can use wet paper/tissues, this might be better if the grease is forcing its way through the bearing, but that dont happen too often. good luck
