My method.

I have a old toaster oven in my workshop to heat the engine. The crank and bearings usually end up just falling out when heated to 200F to 225F. If the front bearing refuses to come out a wood dowel from the rear will do the trick. The back bearing if stuck usually comes out with a smack on a piece of wood.

When putting in new bearings.

I put the bearings in the freezer or out side in the winter, the crankcase goes in the oven at 200F. Bearings end up falling into place. Then heat the crankcase with bearings in place and the crankshaft goes into the freezer. The crank will usually fall into place.

No hammering usually required.
