Default Replacing Engine's rear bearings?

I'm trying to replace the rear bearings in my SportWerks.21 and my Werks TLB7Pro.
both of them are blown and Ive removed all the internals except for the outer ring of the rear bearings...

Q1. How do I remove the ring without damaging the case?

Q2. Do I need a special tool?

So the rear bearing came apart and the outer race is in the case still? Heat it up with a heat gun. Very hot. The race will almost fall out just give it a little tap.

I hope these didn't fall apart while the engine was together running. If it did, your P/S might be done. Anyway, if you have a toaster oven, set it to 400 and place the bare case (nothing installed, all orings removed) in the oven for 10 minutes. Use a oven glove and tap it on a wood block. The race should fall out.
