Default stuck bearing

I have an evolution 46 that the bearings have went bad in. The front bearing came out eazy, the back one is stuck. Any ideas on an eazy way to get it out? It does not have a lip from the front side of the bearing to drive it out by. any ideas would help. I was thinking of heating it up but dont want to damage the case.
Thanks

Heat the case up in the oven (with everything else removed of course) until it''s good and warm. Then hit the engine on a board (front facing up) until the bearing falls out (shouldn''t take much).

I was going to say a heat gun. The aluminum block will absorb heat much faster than the SS bearing. The bore should increase in diameter by a couple thousands and you can push it out.

I drop my cases in A pot of boiling water to get the bearings out. I made up A hooked tool from landing gear wire to just pull out the rear bearing. Easy
