You have to strip down the engine and just place the crankcase with the bearings in it in the oven at 300F for 10 mins. When the case expands the bearings will be very easy to push out. Remember to remove everything first...piston,sleeve,crankshaft,conrod,backplate

Ya I would put it in the oven at 300, then I just use a wooden spoon or something to push them out. If they don't free up at all put the engine back in the oven and try again.
