This may sound highly suspect, but the way my dealer removed that bearing was to heat the area surrounding the bearing very hot by using a 'rosebud' flame tip on a propane torch.
Then when the area was good & hot he slammed the belt case (bearing facing down) on to some protective sections of 2 x 4 or 4 x 4 wood that had been placed on the workbench. The bearing popped out after a few judicious slams.
The wood protects the case edges from being damaged by the aggressive slamming.
Meanwhile the new bearing had been placed in the freezer so that it would 'shrink' and be somewhat easier to reinstall in the still-warm case.
Hope this helps,
