    You can try to tap it 1/4npt and install a grease zirk. Then push it out with grease.....

    I have always used the grease trick. I think it would work better than bread, as bread has lots of air voids in it. Pack as much grease as you can get in there. Then use a piece of round bar stock (or something similar) that is almost the same diameter as the inside of the bearing to punch against the grease and force the bearing out. The key is to use something that fits just snug enough into the bearing to keep the grease from shooting out, but just loose enough to slide through the bearing without too much friction.

    You will have to do it a few times, packing more grease in each time.

    This. I've never had it fail. Hydraulic pressure is a wonderful tool.

    Agreed, the grease trick works pretty well. Haven't tried it yet, but peanut butter might work even better.

    There is a fancy Snap-On tool for removing the bushing, it sometimes works.

    Peanut butter would probably work...but I wouldn't trust anything other than JIF. And if you go this route, stick with creamy. Gotta stay away from that crunchy shit.

    Put the hammer down!
    Try asking it nicely.


    If that doesn't work, pick up the hammer and cuss and threaten it.


    What does the Haynes manual say?

    Pretty sure Haynes says to pack it full of grease.

    Ive finally taken the pilot bearing out! I had a 9 piece puller set but I didnt have the right sizes for it, so i had to chisel out the inner part of the bearing, then hammer a size too big off the puller into it, and got it out, although I cannot get it off the tool, atleast the most of my worries is dealt with!

    Glad you got it out. Next time try the grease method. You'll be surprised at how simple and easy it is.
