Default HOW TO REMOVE A STUCK REAR BEARING?

As the title says I have a rear bearing that will not budge. I have heated the case in the oven several times to over 325 degrees and it still wont pop out. I do not know anyone locally who has a bearing puller and I do not replace bearings often enough to warrent buying one. So I am wondering if anyone out there has any tricks up their sleeve for this problem?

The oven may be set to 325, but the crankcase may not have been that hot unless you are checking it with a temp gun. You may have to get it hotter.

There is a video on you tube of a guy using a hot plate to remove old bearings and install new ones. Seen it on here, somewhere. Was very helpful for me.
