quick question about pilot bearing

Hello all we are currently replacing the clutch and the flywheel on a 93 mercury tracer. We are stuck.. we can not get the pilot bearing out. Does anyone know how to?

if it's anything like a chevy small block with the bushing pressed into the crank

just fill the center part with grease and use something about the same size

wrapped in duct tape or electrical tape for a fairly tight fit.

put it in the hole and give it a good whack with a hammer and it should pop

right out

the grease will push it out

we used to use a 6 inch long 3/8 drive extention

You know I was going to post the same. For some reason I thought I remember my dad telling me about using grease like that.

Go rent a slide hammer with an attachment for pilot bearing removal.

I've got a couple out with the dowel and grease method but ran into many stubborn ones. The slide hammer will get them all out. Easy or stubborn.

Have used this method dozens of times..pack it with the thickest grease you can find and use the clutch alignment tool and a big hammer and it should come right out...If all else fails you can use a small sharp chisel and very carefully ,without gouging the crank recess, cut it in half and pop it out..
