My Kratons motor bearing exploded and now is stuck and I tried the bread trick and it literary bent the cap where the bread was so I Viced it back into shape any ideas on how to get it unstuck or I’m stuck with buying myself a motor for my own birthday image.jpg

Wouldn’t that just tighten the bearing in place because it would expand in all directions
Aluminum will expand quicker than steel releasing the bearing. Trust me Mark rober knows his stuff lol. just don't heat the piss out of it. A nail head or hook shaped pry tool helps with the really stubborn ones. Make sure you are heating the outer edge of the aluminum not by the bearing.

Heat should work just fine as @FatCatRC mentioned..

If all else fails take a Dremel and cut the race.. once you slice it, it will relieve itself of the bore... But again, the heat method is the one to use.. heat it fast and get after it fast and it should come right out..👍

Take a block of wood and cut a hole a bit larger than the bearing so you can take some good hits at it without the end plate moving. Use a socket that fits the bearing race size.
You could do this in a vice also to get the socket to push evenly on the bearing race.

Other option would be to go to an auto shop and have them use their hydraulic press.

In that case I see this going 2 ways.

1. Rent/buy an internal bearing puller tool.
2. cut the race with a cut off wheel (wouldn't have to fully cut it, just enough to get things moving.)
