    A die grinder with a half worn out cutting disc that will fit down inside race. Safety goggles are a necessity, as always. You won't have to cut it but mabe half way through. At that point a small coal chisel and a BFH (Big F*******Hammer) rap it a couple of times and the race will fracture. BTDT many times. HTH

      Another method is to weld a bead around the inside of the race. when it cools it will shrink some, then pull it. Usually it will fall right out.
