Punch needs to fit closely the bore of the part being removed. Pack the hole with oil soaked wadding and tap the punch in. Pressure from behind drives the bushing or needle bearing cage out. Add more wadding as the part pushes out.
Just use grease. That's how I get pilot bearings out. Fill the bearing with grease. Find a socket that is the same as the inside of the bearing. Put an extension into the socket the wrong way and hit it with a hammer.
