    Tap them out with a brass bar, Don't hit to hard. The brass will bend insted of the aluminum.

    Ball-pin hammer? I think thats what its called. I remember those bearings they were a pain! You'll see try the ball-pin hammer before you screw the bearings up. I screwed them up so I used a Dremel tool and carefully cut the races out! Be careful though one scratch and you scred the matting surface or bearing cup.
    Good Luck

    They are a little worn...I can't tell if they are really bad or not...I am pretty sure that the main big bearing needs to be replaced...

    Thanks
