Default Cant get the engine bearings out!

Hey guys! I have an OS 12TZ and I cant seem to get the old engine bearings out. I heated it up to 225 and tried smacking it on the table for the main bearing and nothing happened. And so i heated it up to 250 to smack it again and it didnt budge. Any ideas? thanks
Kyle

Heat it more. Try about 350-400
