I just used a 1/2" drive socket extension and put a socket that fit snugly thru the front bearing center hole and knocked out the rear bearing with a small sledge hammer. Then I used a scrap piece of 1 1/4 iron pipe with a pipe cap threaded on the end to knock out the front bearing. Clean up the hub with round wire wheel on a drill real good and the shaft and spacer. Then put rear bearing in first with a brass punch hitting only the outer race of the new bearing until its in all the way then put snap ring back on. I put spacer back in and held it centered with the same socket and extension but inserted it from the rear. Then drive in the front bearing with brass punch checking the spacer is centered before you fully seat front bearing.

Leave the new bearings in the freezer until you are ready to install them.

Won't help you remove old bearings. Helps install new bearings. Being cold makes them slightly smaller and easier to tap in.

That gives me an idea.  How about giving a stuck bearing a shot of CO2 or freon from an air duster?  I've used a torch on a stuck bearing but obviously you can't get it too hot because of the plastic tub.
