Default How to remove pinion????

I am trying to change my gears. I have done this before but it has been a while. I got the pinion flange off and now I am trying to pull the pinion from the housing. It is stuck in there....do I need to remove the front bearing or should I just hammer on it until it falls out??

Heat the bearing up with a torch for about 15 minutes, then beat the **** out of it. Only bad thing is you might destroy the pinion but if you're putting a new one in no big deal.

Do I need to remove the oil slinger before trying to take out the pinion?

RE-install Old pinion nut(only if you have a new one)(so you dont screw up the threads)...Big Rubber mallet(or BFH)....hammer away.it will come out....just have someone in back to catch it when it finallyflys out....
