Echo blower crank bearings

What is the proper method of replacing the bearings and seals in an Echo PB60-HT blower? I have it torn down to both halves of the case and need to know the best way to pound or press them out without doing damage to the case.

No problem. They popped out with a tap of a hammer and punch.

Heat the cases in an oven to 300 degrees, put the bearings in the freezer and they'll drop in. It's just better that way...........

It's not a big deal. However, what can happen is you **** the bearing in the housing and elongate it, or put a small crack in the case.. bummer
