    BFH, just use a punch "brass" so that you do not damage the threads. That is unless you are just going to toss the gears in the trash......then swing away

    You'll only get the OUTER bearing out that way. Once out, you have to press the other one off, even if you are using new gears. The new gears may have a 0, -1, +1...something like that on the head. If the number matches the old gears, measure the shim pack off the old pinion (that's under the bearing) and use the same thickness of shims....should stab you right back where you were for depth...hehe
