Pilot bearings

Not having an official puller I made one.  Two 3" long metal legs with a  
slight leg bent out on the end. Brazed the other ends on a nut, long bolt  
thru the nut and between the legs. The bolt hold the legs apart and then  
pushes on the crank and out it comes!

I don't think I have ever seen one with an end.
