os cvr .12 rebuild question

I hope that someone can help me. I am doing a rebuild on my os cvr. One of the things that needs replacing is the bearings. I had no trouble at all pulling the outside bearing out. The inside, however, has resisted my every effort to remove it. In that the bearing is the same diameter as the shaft how do I do this.

250-300 f use an oven mit or a pair of welding gloves to hold it. once it's hot rap the back of the block down on a piece of wood. when you lift the motor back up the bearing should be laying there on the piece of wood looking at you.

You may wanna check out RB Concept's website, they have pretty good instructions on how to change the engine bearings.

have you tried this and does it work that easily?

I wonder what #6 on a hot plate translates to in an oven (gas not electric.)
