Was trying to change out the front wheel bearings and the outer races were stuck hard. Couldn't tap them out from the back and didn't have a suitable puller.



A few of the guys on the XL Forum however came up with the idea of running a bead of weld on the faces. This not only puts a bit of heat into the process, when they cool down they contract a bit and then with a bit of persuasion they fell out real easy.
