Doing a clutch pressure plate throw out bearing clutch fork and fork ball replacement when trying to remove trans input bearing at rear of crank shaft not enough bearing left to remove with anything I have on hand is it permissable to use a small die grinder to reach into the back of the crank shaft and carefully grind the remaining bearing into then remove over 3/16 of brass bearing left deep in hole

    as tedious as it is, i use a sharp chisel and chip away till you can collapse it and remove it. be careful with the dye grinder as you may damage the rear of the crank.
