Ball Bearings

What is the best way to remove ball bearings that aren't accessible from either side (one side only). I have a Kubota T1400H that needs to have a reamer run in the cylinder, in order to re-establish the cross hatch pattern. I felt like I need to remove the bearings to prevent getting fine metal in them. I am going to put new rings in it. Any ideas?

Hello Jack B.!

A slide hammer with a "L" hook on the end. That's about the only way I can think of at the moment.

Personally, Ive never been concerned with removing the bearings for either a re-bore or just a hone job. When the job at hand it complete, simply flush out the bearings with spray carb cleaner and air pressure then re-oil before reassembly.

You can also just slather a bunch of grease on the bearing. Any dust of fine filings will get caught in the grease that will be wiped away when you're done.
