Not sure which side of the C/S ou are referring to but the naswer is the sme in any case. These bearings (both of them) are a light interference fit and you drift them out with an appropriate sized drift. Knock then from the outside into the case. Always press or bang on the end that has the writing.
I would replace the C/s.
The shift fork is toast and needs replacing.
Good example of why you don't use silicone anywhere on these engines.

Yes sir. Front to back with some effort on the shaft. Have a new bearing on order. I not at home is there a plug on the outside of the case and trapdoor that is replaceable to knock the bearings out?

If your still talking about the clutch gear bearing then, no.
The oiler plug needs to be removed to replace the left C/S bearing. Don't use a solid bar to drift it out you will break the hollow end of the plug. Use a hollow drift.
The clutch bearing should be pressed in and out. "bashing" bearings in with a hammer is always fraught with danger.
