Here are some view as the Sealmaster bearings are being removed from the cast part. You have to clean up the shafts and remove any burs before attempting to pull out the shaft. I've got it most of the way out and it still got stuck. There is not much reason in taking the or the shaft all the way out. The bearings are just fine and I can remove the paint and repaint without pulling it all apart.
Also shown, you can cut off an allen wrench and shape it on a grinder to create a tool to remove the bearing . I've already created one but as you can see I am using it a little differently. The wrong end. After fighting with it many times before and also here, I just used the next best and now my preferred method which is drilling a hole in the cast (soft, takes 2 seconds 1/4") and using the allen wrench as it was meant to be used. The bearing cap and shaft turn so drill the hole on the bottom of the cast so it will not show. Fill it later before you paint. With seal master bearings, you will never ever take this apart again. So much easier!
