Thanks for the replies. Yep, I know how to set a bearing and I have Man tools, one especially useful one , I've just never dealt with a bearing coming apart the way this one has and I do have new bearings and a new oil seal to go in.

I had the idea of using a cutoff wheel to notch it and then bust it free with a chisel or a heavy drift but I was concerned about the inner hub surface. Like you said the if there are any high points I can smooth them with a rounded file prior to pressing in the bearing.

thanks for the replies.

Everybody's gotta believe in something... I believe I'll have another BEER!
