pilot bearing removal

How do I remove the bearing from a crankshaft...the one that holds the input
shaft for a manual transmission?

Thanks in advance.

If it's what I'm thinking, get a round dowel that just fits into the
bearing with little side clearance, fill the hole in the crank with
bearing grease, slide the dowel just starting to go into the bearing and
give it a sharp rap with a hammer. The grease will push the bearing out.

Re: pilot bearing removal

My hubby agrees withGill.

Here are a couple of different ways
#1 recommended way is with a puller. AutoZone maybe $20
#2 if you have a steel pilot shaft fill it full of grease, fill the whole
hole full of grease.
start your pilot shaft in there and keep smacking it with a hammer. It will
act as a hydraulic pump and push the bearing out far enough so that you can
change it.
Push it a little over half way out and then you can grab it with some vice
grips and pull it out.

Thanks for the answer Kate. I'm glad I didn't ask you about putting neon
lights under the dash, haha.
