Hello again Lance, If you are having trouble separating a seal or bearing
race form a shoulder it is pressed up to and touches, use a sharp wood
chisel as a wedge and proceed around the circumference of the De Dion tube
very slowly, a little at a time, until you can use a tool/punch/prybar that
is thicker or stronger.  Good luck with it, Garrett
