Find a solid, metal cylinder that will fit into the center of the pilot 
bearing with very little play around the edge.  Fill the hole in the crank 
where the bearing is with very thick grease.  Press the cylinder into the 
hole slowly and forcefully.  You may need to tap it with a hammer.  This 
will hydraulically press the bearing out from the crank.
