    Yep, the dremmel method is good. I've one is many times. Easier to run a bead of weld on the inside of the race. Shrinks and can easily be tapped out.

    I've not done this but my approach would be to apply a fair bit of heat by blowtorch; the aluminium should expand much more that the steel bearing; a wet cloth on the bearing to cool it, should virtually drop out on its own, ok , maybe not but should be easier to drift out,

    I have a rear Gen 2 wheel I may sell. It has a tire on it with good tread left. Got a custom set of wheels from Germany so I don't really need my stock wheels anymore. Probably just sit in storage forever. Email me at dbroadway54@gmail.com

    Thanks for the offer dbroadway54. Sean from Morley's Muscle had a used one also. It looks pretty nice. I have it all apart. Thought since it was down, I would put new bearings and seal in it. Just waiting on the new parts to get here. Tracking says before Friday.
    Hopefully have it back together soon.

    Parts came in, all back in place again. Things went together smoothly.
    Big thanks to Sean and others for their assistance!

    How much do you want for your broken wheel?
