Sorry buddy, but I had the same issue with one of my Novak bearings, and I had to cook the backplate until it went from black to bronze before the bearing got loose....After that, the bearing was garbage, but I installed a new ceramic bearing easily... Maybe the acetone could not get to all the glue, but the heat sure will... I would cook it until I smell the CA glue burning, then pull the bearing out while hot...

I guess no one needs help on Fridays.
